DIY: Paper Flowers

Happy Monday friends! Today, I have a super fun DIY project that ANYBODY can do. I always hate it when I see an awesome DIY post and I try to do it and it requires all these special tools and takes hours and hours... not my style haha. This will literally take you minutes and you probably have everything sitting at your desk at this very moment! These paper flowers can be used for bouquets, some garnish for a table, centerpieces, and the list goes on!

{ S U P P L I E S }
* thick cardstock
* pen/pencil
* scissors
* hot glue gun (optional)

{ S T E P 1 }
Cut out a square of cardstock (I did 4x4) and draw a snail like spiral that ends like a square.


{ S T E P 2 } Cut along the line
{ S T E P 3 } Starting on outer ring, wrap paper around tip of pen all the way to the end 
{ S T E P 4 } Dab a little glue on the bottom if necessary to hold form. And repeat as many time as  you want!
