So, my friend had her baby shower today, and she's gonna do the baby's room in a jungle theme. I got her the jungle border that she registered for, and here's how I wrapped it:



I made the flower out of the tissue paper (obviously) and a sparkly brad, then I just stuck it on with double stick tape. She really liked how it looked, even though everyone else's presents were all in typical baby boy themed wrapping paper. Another friend said I should make a bunch of these flowers and sell them but I said no way people would buy them because they're so easy to make!

You just cut a square of tissue paper about the size you want your flower, then fold in half, half again, then half the triangle way, then cut a petal shape and unfold. Do a bunch, layer them, stick a brad through, crinkle it up, then fluff it out. Easy peasey.

I love it! The color combo is great! I really want one for my hair.

Oh and they are easy to make for crafty people, those that aren't crafty will jump all over them.

I must know where did you find that fab tissue paper??
