I have seen this type of flower on several blog sites in the last couple of weeks and decided to see how easy it really was to make. The answer: SUPER EASY. I used really thin patterned paper, but I have also seen these made with pages torn from an old book. I haven't done it yet, but I think newpaper print would work well too. (You might want to spray it with an archival spray so it won't yellow....or not).
