Fabulous Flowers: A Springtime Nursery Rhyme

Lynn, Lynn, just can’t win,
when getting her to garden grow.
But with paper flowers
that don't need showers.
She'll chase away the snow.

It seems like forever ago that I was fighting off the early spring blues with paper pups and twisted critters. Now, almost a month later, we’re still bouncing back and forth between spots of sun and the threat of snow. Gosh, will the warm weather ever be here for good?!

As the old saying goes, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” I’m still wearing a warm smile and finding little ways to let Mother Earth know I'm ready for spring. 

Paper flowers get a sophisticated twist with Klutz’s Fabulous Flowers. Bright colours, bold patterns and a little bit of sparkle make these faux florals hard to ignore! 

It's easy! Just punch out the pre-cut pieces and glue on the stems. Wrap, twist, or roll each colourful piece to give your flowers dimension. Then slide them on the stems and secure them in place with some glue. Before you know it, you'll have a beautiful bouquet that's sure to make Mom smile!

I've got another Mother's Day craft in mind for next week, so I've sprinkled my green garden with bright paper blooms. And, you know what? I think I can already feel the temperature rising!

Looking for more ways to make some fabulous flowers? Chicken Sock’s Paper Flowers is packed with bright, easy-to-assemble blooms for the ages four & up crowd. Or check out Fairies for an out-of-the-box way to use fake flowers to make tiny little petal people.
