Paper Scrap Flowers DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

When I made the Bonbon Advent Wreath last week, I was left with a beautiful pile of pink, red, green and gold scraps. Rather than toss them, I decided put them to good use – and to make some holiday place cards. When dinner is over, grab the flowers, remove the names and throw them in a vase for a long-lasting arrangement. Or send your guests home with a sweet keepsake. Happy Holidays!

I used good quality tissue paper, and had fun trying a variety of different patterns with my hole punches. I love how the final pattern looks a little like eyelet!
