What is better than a bouquet of fresh hydrangeas?  A bouquet of paper hydrangeas that don't ever wilt!  Today I am sharing with you this easy, however time consuming, paper hydrangea tutorial.  I am going to be upfront here... this project to me way longer than I expected.  That said, it is a perfect way to keep creative while chilling in front of your favorite t.v. series.  I used a Sizzix die for my project, but Lia Griffith has a great Paper Hydrangea Printable Template and DIY that I featured at Printable Decor recently.

I used wonderful filter paper that I got from Materials for the Arts in Bloomington.  If you are a crafter/artist and don't have a relationship with your local recycling center, you could be missing out big time!

I followed Lia's tutorial linked above to assemble my flowers. Holy ninjas, that took forever. It was totally worth it though. Papercrafting tutorial paper hydrangeas
