DIY Shower: Pretty Paper Flowers

Thursday, October 7, 2010

Wendy from Dozi Designs sent us the BEST project, and Elizabeth and I can't get over how simple and inexpensive her paper flower DIY tutorial is. It's almost too good to be true. Plus our minds are running wild on how you could incorporate her project into your upcoming baby shower -- we're thinking you make them a part of your place settings, scattered them on your table runner, make garlands with them, put them on favor boxes, or use them as cupcake or cake toppers -- shoot, let's just make it a theme! Using these little beauties could help cut costs and help you stay on budget, or just give you more mad money to play with on other "necessary" baby shower details. It's ok -- it'll be our little secret, so long as you send us pictures. :)

4x4" square sheet of paper (heavy weight or normal - white, color, or one with a double-sided pattern)

Step-by-Step Instructions:
1. Draw a spiral on a 4x4" square sheet of paper
2. Cut out the spiral along the lines you have drawn
3. Begin rolling up the spiral from the outside
4. Keep on rolling until there's no more left to roll!
5. And your done!

Those flowers are great! I was skeptical because paper flowers makes me think 'homecoming float' but WOW! I will be finding any excuse to make these. Do you glue the bottom or anything?
