Spring Centerpiece And Table Style Using Scrapbook Paper
Create a simple Spring/Summer centerpiece for just a couple of dollars! This is perfect for any Spring event you might be having…a Bridal Shower, Mother’s Day or a Ladies Lunch! Super easy and not very expensive to make.
I started with a white latice sheet of scrapbook paper and a single bunch of flowers both purchased at Joann’s. Using a straight edge and an x-acto knife, I cut the scrapbook paper into strips as the pattern repeated itself.
I had a little gingham ribbon, that I wove through the paper, to helped secure the paper to the vase.
First, pull the flowers off the stems. The center of the flower comes through all the layers of the petals sticking out the back. You need to cut the back off, so that the flower will lay flat, on the paper. Before cutting that off, take a dab of glue and glue together the layers of petals, so the flower does not pull apart.
My flowers were glued directly to the scrapbook paper and not the ribbon. The paper strips could then slide around the vase evenly once attached to the vase. I used a dab of hot glue to attach the ribbon to the vase. This can be peeled off later without ruining the vase.
I also thought it looked great wrapped around candles – perfect to add to a table for a Bridal Shower or Brunch!
And to finish the table off, it also makes for a pretty napkin ring!
Sorry for so many photos…I have been taking a photography class and practicing what I learn!

Hi! Can I tell you that I LOVE tulips and what you did for these centerpieces? Super creative!
I love how this looks easy and elegant, but I also really enjoy how it ties everything together so nicely if you do napkin rings, vases/or candles, and maybe another item. . I will definitely keep this in mind for my next dinner party (or brunch!)
Thank you all!
