DIY: paper cut flower boutonniere


Last month I made a boutonniere inspired by military accoutrement. This month I thought I’d take the idea of a traditional flower and make it a bit more modern by creating a silhouette of a flower using a paper cutting technique. It’s unique, simple, and cost effective. What couple doesn’t saving costs?

Materials: scissors, craft knife, pencil, mat board, paper color of your choice, template of flower (download here)


Step 1: Trace your design onto black paper.

Step 2: With your craft knife, slowly cut out the design. Make sure you always pull down with the knife. If you make a mistake, you can use a little bit of glue to piece it back together.

Step 3: Pin it onto the lapel of the suit.




There you go! A simple and unique boutonniere for the modern couple. Enjoy!

    This is amazing! But how is it pinned? With what kind of pin or needle or sticker? Could you give a hint please. :)

    That’s very cool in a classy artsy sort of way. I love how it’s like a silhouette. I think I’d do it with something a little more heavyweight like card stock, but it’s still a great idea. Thanks for posting!
