Calling all paper scraps...

I saw an idea like this on studio 5 but it was done with large pieces of paper so I had an idea to make flowers instead and give them to the great ladies I visit teach. I started out with 2 inch strips of paper and cut them 12 inches long. You will need 2 strips for each flower. I then used a paper punch to punch out the flowers and the circles. I think this project is easy enough that you could get kids to help you fold the strips.I used a glue stick to the 2 strips together and then used the glue gun to to glue the circles onto the fan flowers. Be careful to not let the fans invert or you will get a hot glue burn like I did. Hold them in place for a  minute and then glue the wooden shishkabob scewer on the back. Add a little ribbon and a hershey kiss for the center and you have a cute bouquet! I filled the empty chili sauce jars with easter candy,(I knew I saved those cute little jars for something.) and then made a tag and tied some green rafia ribbon around the base. The chocolate pops are just a carmel put on a lollipop stick and dipped in dark chocolate and then I drizzled white chocolate on the top. They are easy peasy and very yummy!

You can make cute ceiling and window hangings with these just make them in a larger size and hang them with fishing line from the window or the ceiling. Have fun using up all of your paper scraps!

Mel took the words right out of my mouth. I want my visiting teachers to bring me that. Maybe Ty and I will try them next week :)
