Here in London, spring is slowly (but surely) creeping up on us. The days are getting longer, and our lives a little more colorful with new blossoms on the street corners. As someone that lives in a country that is perpetually raining, the arrival of Spring itself is surely worthy of a celebration with some super bright DIY paper flower party poppers! –Erin from BerinMade Paper Goods
Store bought party poppers
Coloured Tissue Paper
Card Stock (in your chosen flower colors)
To make the paper flower party poppers:
Step 1. Feed your card stock into your printer and print out the shapes, then cut out the shapes with scissors.
Step 2. On the cut out flower, fold each petal towards the center to create creases. Then, between each petal, make a small pleat. Using all the creases you have made, the petals should now cave in towards the center to make a flower.
Step 3. To make the flower center, take the circle, cover it in glue and sprinkle glitter on it. Let dry.
Step 4. To make the centre fringe, cut out strips of tissue paper and fringe about 2/3 of the way in. Paint glue around the party popper and stick wrap the strip of tissue paper around it.
Step 5. Wrap the petals around in the same way, and then secure the petals with floral tape.
Now test out your first popper!
