I grew up around newspapers (my dad was in the business) and I always loved the smell and feel of newsprint and ink. Jessica from How About Orange has a great tutorial for transforming bits of newspaper into adorable flowers to adorn just about anything. I think it could be fun to do this with a scraps from a paper from a significant date or event as a gift.

    Is there an actual tutorial for the flowers? Looks like just a link to a book and a tutorial to make the basket. Shame – they look like a lot of fun to make.

    I didn’t see any tutorial for these flowers. The article linked says she made them using the book Paper Flowers by Michael LaFosse.

    Thanks, ladies! I misread her post and thought there was a tutorial. I apologize for the error. I’ll take some time this weekend to see if I can dig up a tutorial for similar flowers for y’all. :)

    Here you go! This is a tutorial for a very similar paper flower, found via Craftster. Enjoy!
