There are lots of possibilities with these flowers. I've done them with recycled book pages as well as scrapbook paper. If the paper is too heavy duty, it cracks at the edges when folded. Once you get the hang of the folds, it's easy though time consuming. I used green leaves from some of my silk flower stash but one could create leaves from scrapbooking paper as well. I hot glued the flowers to a heavy duty wire stem and inserted them in floral foam inside the white pitcher.
