Do you know the small paper cups you fill with ketchup at fast food restaurants? That’s what these flowers are made out of! When a friend showed me that if you tug on the sides the cup expands, my mind was blown. Maybe this is common knowledge but I had no idea! Anyhow, with a quick coat of paint and paper centers these favor cup flowers are the perfect way to decorate for your next party. (And check out even more paper flower crafts!)

What are you getting your mom for Mother’s Day? If you’ve waited until the last minute, don’t worry! There are tons of great gift options online. I found all the gifts below using Chippmunk – my favorite site for online deals. They also have tons of fantastic deals on flowers and chocolates! Normally, I wouldn’t think to use a coupon when buying gifts, but I’ve realized that saving money allows me to add a few more items to the cart and spoil the ones I love. Make sure you don’t miss their online deals at Rifle Paper Co., J.Crew, Teleflora, & Dean & Deluca!
This post is brought to you by Chippmunk: compare deals at the stores you love and see where you save the most!

And the award goes to….Mom! Of course, who else?! These little party store trophies get a new life as a sweet token for Mom. Because they’re so easy to make, you can give them to all the moms in your life – friends, sisters, moms, step-moms, mom-in-laws….perfect for place settings or to give out at a Mother’s Day brunch.
