Paper Flowers

Over the last week or so I have been making paper roses out of comic book pages like crazy. 
I am making many of them for our wedding.  I know it's still early, but I am getting a headstart as we will have a lot going on between now and then, and I have given myself somewhat lofty goals for diy projects.  I am basing my roses off of this tutorial.  I got the idea to add leaves to the bottom of my roses to make them more perfect, so I dyed the pages of a book we were going to get rid of and cut out leaf shapes.

After hot gluing them to the bottom of the rose, a swipe of the fingernail curls them outward.  I don't want to give too much away, but I will be including the finished roses in the bouquets, as well as elsewhere in our wedding decor.
I love how they seem very flower-like while still accentuating the comic book flair!
