Making Paper Accordion Flowers

Make these Paper Accordion Flowers to hang on trees like ornaments.  So simple and pretty!

I have a collection of twigs that I always use to hang seasonal things like Christmas ornaments, Valentines hearts, St. Patrick Day shamrocks, and Easter eggs. But I felt like adding something colourful and a little springy for the transition time to Easter.

I have a huge stack of scrapbook paper, punches and embellishments that are collecting dust. So I thought I’d put them to use and make some paper flowers!

This was a great project for the kids too.  (It’s easy enough for little hands.)  They are on spring break, so they are happy to get in with Mom and create!
