Darling Paper Flowers

I was searching for something cute to post on here and also to make.
I found these darling paper flowers from Martha Stewart.
  • Introduction

    With a few snips and folds, and a little imagination, you can turn humble paper bags into party-perfect decorations.

    You can use gusseted bags of any size for these hanging flowers; each flower is made from six bags.

    Next: Step 1

  • Step 1

    Fold the bottom of a bag in on itself. Cut above the lower fold, removing the bag's bottom. Trim the top into a petal shape.

    Next: Step 2

  • Step 2

    Punch a hole about 1/4 inch from the bottom. Repeat process with five more bags. Apply double-sided tape to the front edges of a bag. Place another bag on top, and repeat to stack all of the bags. Draw a length of string through the hole in the stack; knot it loosely.

    Next: Step 3

  • Step 3

    Pull the top and bottom bags around to form a flower shape and join the end petals with double-sided tape.

    Next: Step 4

  • Step 4

    Suspend your completed paper bag flowers by string.

Ok, you have to agree that these are darling and you can't resist just like I couldn't.
Try them and let me know what you think.
