Today's project is paper flowers for a cute, inexpensive 4th of July centerpiece.
You will need 4th of July scrapbook paper, paper punches and glue.
To make the flowers, you will be layering circles and simple flower shapes. I folded circles in half to get my flower patterns.
I bought my paper at Archiver's. I was one of their first employees (#13) waaaay back when. I taught lettering and hand tinting!
Once your flowers are glued together, use tacky glue to glue sticks or straws to the back. I love stripey straws, don't you?
I put the flowers in a $1 bin from Target. I embellished it with square scraps left over from the flowers. To make the flowers stand up straight you will need a little florists foam in your container.
