How to make a pretty paper bouquet
Create a delightful bouquet from paper cupcake wrappers as a finishing touch to your gift. Use just one or tie bunched together with complementary ribbons and bows. Add a stylish sparkling buckle threaded with colourful ribbon on a simple box for an elegant and sophisticated look

Fold 8 cupcake wrappers in half retaining curved shape

Use decorated toothpicks (available at Supermarkets) or decorations with wire attached (ie Christmas ‘Cherries’ to decorate the tree or discarded decorations off bon-bon crackers). Hole punch a flower or shape to finish underneath flower

Thread wrappers onto wire or toothpick, ending with hole punched shape

Arrange papers to overlap layers. Glue underneath to hold in place

Fan out papers to simulate petals. Use the bloom singularly or create a posie by wrapping wires together or gather in a ribbon. Attach to gift
