I go to JoAnn's when their silk flowers are 50% off. I like to buy the hydrangea type because they are super easy to pop off the stems and they already have a hole for a brad. I got enough flowers to fill 5 jelly jars for $9.

Also the little jar of bazzil bitsy blossoms has many colors and goes a long ways. I use these on many pages and I don't think i'll ever run out.

I made a layout today and just used red silk flowers from my craft box where I made a wreath last year. I popped them off the plastic stem and used buttons for centers. I also layered two different flowers. I checked them with an American Crafts pH pen and these are acid free according to the pen.

I buy mine at Wal-mart in the fabric dept. they usually have them there in a bag for about 1-2 dollars most of them are already off the stem and are just bunched up in a plastic bag. the last bag I bought gave me Red, blue, pink, yellow, white, purple flowers all sizes. it was enough to fill up 6 quart size baggies Wal-mart is Awesome!!!

Have a look at blackberrypaper.com, mostly under Prima but also some other brands...they have the most awesome flowers, gorgeous really glossy ones, best range I've seen anywhere, I order them online because I'm in a remote area of Australia and can ony get really basic flowers...give it a try sure you'll love them

I got a lot of my Primas from a now out-of-business site that used to sell a monthly kit with an awesome mix of flowers of all different types/sizes that coordinated. Unfortunately, she's no longer around.

I buy large bouquets of daisy-type flowers from any craft or fabric store, dollar store, Wally world...etc. Normally they have several layers and I just pull them off the stems and separate the layers. They are so inexpensive and if you layer different colors/sizes the results are amazing! (AND fairly inexpensive).

i really like the prima ones, and heidi swap if i need the bigger ones. i used to buy them on evilbay, but my micheal's started carrying them this summer so i buy them there most of the time now.

I buy the fake flowers when they are on sale. I look to see if they are easy to pull apart and how real they look. If you can get them on sale you get way more flowers for your money. I actually find it very hard to work with the paper flowers...I really like the fabric flowers!

I almost always use my Coupons to HL and Michael's to get flowers. I love Primas, and love that Michael's carries them! They are by far my favorite flowers to use

Here in the states, we get Coupons for either 40 or 50% items at Hobby Lobby and Michael's, as well as Coupons to JoAnn Fabrics and other stores

I bought paper flowers yesterday from HL. Spare parts by Paper Studio had them 30 %. Packages of 36 flowers in each; in various shades and sizes. Blues, yellows, pinks and purples. I also make my own, with Mulberry DS CS in my silhouette.

Hello flower seeker. I like to think i have a great selection of flowers. Since I am obsessed with them I get mine from a store called hobby lobby, micheals of course, and Target. There aren't anymore scrapbook store s where I live so I do most of my shopping online. Of course scrapbook.com has a great selection. Hobby Lobby has an online store called crafts etc check them out and see what goodies you can find there. They tend to have the same products. Let me know what you find. Happy flower shopping
