Paper Cut Boutonniere

Not everyone loves the look of traditional boutonnieres. Maybe you're looking for something a little more on the modern side for those special guys in your wedding?

I came across this picture and thought it was such a different and fun idea!

It's still romantic and whimsical (as all good boutonnieres should be), but it's sleek and modern with a fun twist at the same time!

Literally, ANY color, pattern, texture is open to you. I'd use the heaviest card stock that I could find to help it keep its shape throughout the day (and all those hugs). You can pick any flower silhouette you like.

Plus it's light! If your groomsmen will be rocking the suspenders or vest only look (or maybe even just a dress shirt and tie?) you'll need boutonnieres that are as light weight as possible. Traditional boutonnieres just are typically too heavy to stay upright without using a bunch of pins, which gets uncomfortable.  This would be the perfect solution!

For the full list of instructions, as well as a downloadable template, check out Brooklyn Bride.

She used a craft cutter to help keep the lines cleaner. While she doesn't specify how it's pinned on, I think any pin backing from your local craft store would be fine with some light glue at the biggest point of the flower.

Tell us what you think! Would you create these for your wedding?
