I love to create a pretty table for special events. These personalized place settings with paper flowers were fun and easy to create.  They’ll be a lovely addition for our Easter brunch this year. Using paper napkins made the process even simpler because they were already cut to the right size. The napkins hold up better than tissue paper but are still delicate enough to create a beautiful flower. A bowl full of these pretty flowers would also make a great centerpiece.

Materials

  • Paper napkins ($1.00 per package)
  • Wire
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock

Directions

  1. Cut through the folds of the napkin so that you have a stack for four individual pieces. You can use more for a fuller flower.
  2. Fold accordion style, each fold about ½" wide.
  3. Twist a piece of wire around the middle.
  4. Round off each end with scissors.
  5. Fan out each side of the napkin.
  6. Pull each ply of the napkin up towards the center.
  7. Scrunch and pull the layers to create desired shape.
  8. To make place cards, print each guest's name on the bottom of a 4×8 inch piece of cardstock. Fold in half, then punch two small holes near the center fold and use the wire on the flower to attach.
