Paper Bag flowers

What do you do with the paper bag that comes with your shopping? Me, I put gift inside and give it to the intended person or use them for carrying light things till they are worn out. This time the designs on the paper bag made me do these simple flowers. While doing them I realized the underneath of the paper is white. But since this idea was already in my mind I decided to proceed and do them. Tell me what do you think of them.
Things you need..
  • Paper bag preferably same color on both sides
  • Scissor
  • Pencil
  • Small pom poms of your choice
  • Floral wire and tape.
1. Cut open the paper bag carefully from all four sides .
2. Make horizontal stripes and fold each stripe of desired width of the petal.
3. Cut the petals to the desired shape. For these flowers I used 5 petals each.

 4. I used small brown pom pom. Take desired length of floral wire for the stem. I made few longer and some shorter stems whose length was like half of my palms. Insert the pop pom through it. 

5. Take another floral wire and tie each petal around the stem and the center tightly. The flower now would be in closed shape.

6. Take the green color floral tape for the stem and wrap it around the floral wire.
7. Open all the petals carefully.
8. Put them into vase and enjoy!

  1. I never have the heart to throw away something pretty looking. This led me to use paper bags to pack gifts. You can find the post here- http://tanyaanurag.blogspot.com/2013/03/february-fun.html
