Paper flowers


No pictures of our little people this time – but a crafting idea for the crafty people. 


Alix had an idea that inspired me to make flowers out of craft/wrapping paper.  The gift was for the bride-to-be, Crystal.  The paper wrapped around the gift is the same paper we used to make the flowers.

I saved several cans, cleaned them out, and Glenn kindly punched 2 holes on opposite sides around the rims.  We threaded some jute string through them and then hung them from some trees at Crystal’s outdoor bridal shower. 

They were so simple, but I loved how pretty and delicate they look.



We’ve made tissue paper flowers before, but this was a first.  It gave us all kinds of ideas about what could possibly be used to make flowers!
