I love receiving and giving flowers, but I don’t love the price tag that comes with it. I decided to do a paper flower bouquet to bring to my sister when she has her first baby. The total cost for seven paper flowers (in mason jar I already had) was 3 dollars. You can’t beat the price and they will last forever. I used the instructions from here: http://www.hp.com/hho/hp_create/party_kits_decorations-decorations-paper_flowers.html?ref=party_kits_decorations-decorations.
I used gray and yellow( a color combo I love and so does my sister) paper. Instead of stems I used striped gray straws I bought on amazon.
The finished product came out really cute. I added some origami hearts to the mason jar to help hold up the straws. I also tied some twine around the mouth of the jar. I can’t wait to give these to my sister.
