I’m a huge fan of using a roll as an impromptu table runner or cut up as individual place mats (it helps incorporate beautiful patterns and colors – plus you can toss it when you’re done), but I love the idea of using this simple Martha Stewart tutorial to create small flowers for either a bouquet or even as individual stems wrapped around your silverware or wine glass.

    Good use of the paper to make flowers. They look real.. My nephew makes flowers out of all duct tape in all colors that look real.

    I agree with both above ^ (Nancy&BehindtheLashes)

    You know,…we do have a baby shower coming up too and this would be perfect for a flower idea (if we are doing any?)

    The flowers are lovely, but what I really thought was cool was the way that she cut a little tab into the placemat and put the person’s name there. Very elegant and simple solution to the whole ‘where’s everyone sitting’ problem.
