crepe paper streamers
Begin by cutting a length of crepe paper to 36".
Fold one end in about 1/2" and pinch at base.
Wrap 1" of the streamer around the center and pinch at base. Repeat this step, working around the flower until you're left with a 3" long tail.
Fold the 3" long tail in half lengthwise.
Wrap the folded tail tightly around base and pinch.
Wrap floral tape around the base of the flower on down creating a short stem. Trim floral tape with scissors.
Add paper tags to the flowers with guests names and seating instructions using twine. Pin the flowers to a linen covered bulletin board for a simple, colorful display.
