Cinco de Mayo is two days away so we wanted to do something a little festive. In honor of Mexico’s independence we turn to the Doña of decorating…Martha Stewart. Martha Stewart
has provided countless ideas for the home. When we saw her Hanging Paper Flowers, we instantly knew they would be perfect for the upcoming holiday.
to view Martha Stewart’s Hanging Paper Flowers
- Gusseted bags (any size)
- Double-sided tape
- Hole punch
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.
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.
Step #3: Pull the top and bottom bags around to form a flower shape and join the end petals with double-sided tape.
Step #4: Suspend your completed paper bag flowers by string.
