Paper Flower Centerpiece



So, I made this for our Back to School Celebration centerpiece. My budget was ZERO dollars, so here's what I came up with using stuff around the house. I put our magnet alphabet letters in a vase. Then I made these paper flowers and thought it would be fun to glue them to a pencil. (I kept wishing I had a Cricut or a Silouhette while I was cutting those flowers by hand! haha, in my dreams). I cut through several layers at a time, and it wasn't so bad. I used my crinkle roller to give a little texture, and my crop-o-dile to attach the brads. Glad I hung on to those from my scrap-booking days, which sadly are long gone.

What do you think?
