Look at colorful paper bags in a new light: When folded and snipped, they make delightful hanging decorations. You'll need 6 gusseted bags (same size and color) for each flower.
- Gusseted paper bags of any size
- Hole punch
- Double-sided tape
Step 1 of 4
Fold bottom of a bag in on itself, as pictured. Cut above lower fold to remove bag's bottom.
Step 2 of 4
Trim top to form a petal shape. Punch a hole about 1/4 inch from bottom. Repeat with remaining bags. Apply double-sided tape to lower front edges of one bag. Place another bag on top; repeat to stack all bags. Draw a length of string through hole in stack; knot.
Step 3 of 4
Pull top and bottom bags around to form flower.
Step 4 of 4
Join ends with double-sided tape. Suspend flower from string.
