Baby Shower - a great excuse to visit Paper Source!!!
I absolutely LOVE Paper Source in Berkeley, CA and actually had a good excuse to go in and purchase a few lovely things today!
I am attending a baby shower that hasn't found out the gender of their child and are using the colors Sage, White and Silver for all their nursery decor. In order to sort of play off their color scheme, I bought this Magnolia Flower Kit to adorn the top of the gifts I have wrapped.
The kit was really easy to use:
Just cut out the leaves template, trace onto the included paper and form into a Magnolia flower, although I used three Q-tips tied together instead of wadding up a piece of scrap paper and trying to attach it to those thin floral wires. You can also save the template and make additional flowers from any paper you like, which I love!
Here are the two papers I chose (they don't look as "sage green" here but you can see a more true image below):
And here's my final product:
