It’s almost spring! It’s been such a cold winter that I really can’t wait for the warmer weather to finally come. These paper flower straw decorations are perfect for a spring party! Not only are they a fun way to decorate for your party, but they’ll also help your guests remember which cup is theirs! (Flower lover? Make these flower hats too!)
Step 1: On the green card stock, trace and cut a circle (about 1 1/4″ in diameter – a large glue stick lid works well!), cut a smaller circle out of the center, and cut a wedge out of the whole thing, as shown below. Draw and cut a leaf 1 3/4″ long with a 1 3/4″ stem.
Step 2: On the petal colored paper, draw and cut petal shapes about 2 1/4″ long. Depending on how wide you cut them, you’ll need 5 to 7 petals per flower. Play around with different petal shapes for each flower.
Step 3: Roll the green circle into a cone around the straw and hot glue closed so that it stays in place on the straw.
Step 4: Hot glue the petals onto the inside of the green bud, keeping them evenly spaced.
Step 5: Write your guest’s name onto the leaf, wrap the stem around the straw and hot glue onto the back of the leaf.
