Love making lovely things that surprise even you when you realize you created them yourself? One of my favorite things I recently learned to make are paper flowers. They may not sound super impressive at first, but when you look at these and realize all the places you can use them, you will fall in love with this artsy craft just like I did. You can decorate your home with paper flowers, of course, and they last, unlike the real variety. Make them with paper scraps, too, so they can basically be free decor. I use them to decorate gifts and birthday cards, too, and sometimes even keep one in my car to give to that special someone I know I am going to need to make smile. Seriously, these flowers just make people happy, especially when they realize they were handmade with love. Check out the step by step tutorials to learn how. Think about other ways to use them, too, I think wedding decor could be brilliant with some of these, DIY party favors, a neat craft to make with the girls, you name it.
