Go Green With These Eco-Friendly Valentines

‘Tis the season to give (and receive) flowers! Why not put a spin on the real thing by making them yourself with wrapping paper? These paper flowers are so easy to make, even your kids will become pros. You’ll want to keep them around forever because the end result is so elegant, and since they don’t wilt, you can.

All you need is wrapping paper (like these from Past Paper Future), scissors, tape, and any type of glue. You can even recycle used wrapping paper for this project–the crinkled paper will add an interesting texture. Scatter the finished flowers on a table as décor, string several to twine to make a garland, or glue them to skewers to make a bouquet.
