These flowers are actually made from J. Crew catalogs, but you can make them from magazines and newspapers as well.
I love this craft for three reasons: 1) I can use all of those pretty catalogs that pile up in my recycle bin, 2) I learn about new color names like tidepool and Hampton purple, and 3) my kids are gaga over this craft because they can crumple!
I found this idea on made by nicloe‘s blog. The directions are easy and when you’re done, you can use these flowers as present toppers, as a garland, or just by themselves. We put ours on the mantle but plan on making them into a garland soon.
