I'm sick today so I suppose I've got some time to blog. I'm quite antsy though - it's hard to stay home for an entire day - but I need the rest. Anyway, here is a mini-continuation of yesterday's tissue-paper flower tutorial.
If you notice, the white flowers on the wreath are actually bigger than the pink ones. That's because instead of using tissue-paper, I actually used WHITE IKEA NAPKINS. It's the exact same process, and it's actually pretty useful if you're going to be making a whole bunch because #1: white napkins are CHEAP and #2: they're all the same size so you don't have to constantly measure each flower.
So there you go... giant white flowers made out of napkins. They're multi-purpose because they're pretty AND you can wipe your mouth on them. hahaha.
If you're interested, here are some links to more paper-flowers/pom-pom inspiration:
If you want to make even BIGGER giant flower POM-POMS, here's the Martha Stewart tutorial on how to do just that. I like how she shows how to do everything in 4 easy pictures, instead of my whole 20-image rant. But you like my rant. You know you do. HAHA.
I am obsessed with the warm sunny colours in this photo.

Here are some Pom-Poms on cupcakes (from Kre8tive Life)
...a yellow+grey wedding reception with a ceiling full of Pom-Poms (from The Sweetest Occasion)
Here's another great tutorial from Honestly WTF on how to make crepe flowers with a similar method to the Pom-Poms.
...it looks like a huge weed-growth from the ceiling, but this crepe-flower chandelier is super crazy! (in a good way).
...this simple outdoor wedding ceremony features colourful crepe pom-poms hung on a tree and tiny furry pom-poms dotting the aisle (from Southern Weddings).
...and this wedding reception just goes all out with colour! (found here).
Last but not least... if you've made a whole bunch of paper-flowers and have no idea what to do with them, you can always wear them on your head.
...oh so awkward.
