meganwelker-mvflorals-11. Gather your blooms and take any leaves or thorns off each stem about halfway down.

2. Keep each type of bloom and foliage in individual sections and place beside each other.

4. Fold the right corner of the paper in the middle underneath your top point on the left side of the paper.

5. Repeat the fold with your first fold you just did.

7. Fold the remaining corner of the paper from the left side over.meganwelker-mvflorals-148. Tie off the paper with a piece of twine.  You can also use a piece of tape on the back of the bouquet.

9. Give the bouquet to someone you love to brighten their day.

Now, how great is that?!?!  The paper we used is from Laura Hooper Calligraphy and we are pretty in love with it, it’s simple, classic and beautiful!
