I ran across a tutorial on the How About Orange blog for recycled paper flowers. (Side Note: How About Orange has THE BEST tutorials & links to other wonderful tutorials!)  I had a few magazines I was getting ready to throw in the trash and thought I’d use them for something much prettier than garbage!

I also had these cute little glass bud vases I bought at Target awhile ago that needed something to go inside…these flowers were perfect. They’ll never wilt, need their water changed, or die on me!  I used a lovely Anthropologie catalog to make these, but I think I’m going to make some out of newspaper next.
