Paper Flower Week: Hanging Paper Flowers

by Dinah Wulf

Here are some elegant Hanging Paper Flowers from Martha Stewart. They make whimsical and colorful decorations for any shower or birthday party, or even a DIY wedding idea.

 

Step 1

Fold the bottom of a bag in on itself. Cut above the lower fold, removing the bag’s bottom. Trim the top into a petal shape.

 

Step 2

Punch a hole about 1/4 inch from the bottom. Repeat process with five more bags. Apply double-sided tape to the front edges of a bag. Place another bag on top, and repeat to stack all of the bags. Draw a length of string through the hole in the stack; knot it loosely.

 

Step 3

Pull the top and bottom bags around to form a flower shape and join the end petals with double-sided tape.

 

Step 4

Suspend your completed paper bag flowers by string.
