Bouquet for New Mommy

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.
