DIY: ribbon rose bouquet

My sister is getting married this weekend!! We are all so excited and I’m pretty thrilled to officially be getting a brother. He’s totally awesome and immediately fit right in with our family. There are a lot of traditions built into weddings, but my sister and her fiancée are really making this experience their own and I’m really looking forward to all the unique touches and individual features their wedding day will include.

They are also a very humble couple and were pretty certain they didn’t want any parties or showers or the obligatory gift-giving….so, we simply threw them a surprise engagement party! And yes, we showered them with gifts! We are a sneaky bunch, when need be…

I saved all the ribbons and bows so I could make her a bouquet for the rehearsal, but I knew I wanted it to be unique. So, instead of pulling out a paper plate and creating a big mess o’ ribbons I decided to make roses out of each one and fashion them into an actual bouquet. There are countless blogs and video tutorials out there with instructions on how to do it, so it was actually quite easy. And I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

Here are some photos of the process:

We had dinner with the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. last night and I gave my sister the bouquet. She really liked it and it made me happy to be able to create something for their big day.
