A fresh spray of colorful paper flowers turns any old pencil box into a reason to smile. Theyre easy to make, they wont wilt, and they never need watering. Perfection. 
Simple, geometric shapes and vivid colors make a bold and cheery addition to any office desktop. 
Send a bouquet of flowers for the price of a few postage stamps. These flat paper posies will delight and surprise your dearest correspondents.

  Wrap the wire stems of your flowers with green floral tape, which is widely available at craft stores.

 

  Cut a small disk of paper and affix it with glue to the center of each flower. Repeat on the back side.

 

 

Your bouquet is now ready to send to a friend. The pieces should lie flat and easily fit into a standard #10-sized envelope. Bend the stems to fit the envelope.

  What an unexpected treat it would be to find this bouquet waiting for you in your office mailbox. A great project for kids (and a wonderful gift for mothers), this whimsical arrangement will brighten any office or cubicle.
