I’ve tucked, packed and shoved my Christmas decorations into the closet under our basement stairs. The tree is waiting at the end of the driveway for the garbage truck to whisk it away. The Christmas clutter is gone and the house looks bare but refreshingly clean.
But now I’m longing for a craft to brighten the long New England winter. I’ve overdosed on crocheting, I’m done baking for awhile and I’ve made enough origami stars to last a lifetime. January is the perfect time to log into Pinterest and sift through the thousands of craft projects that I so overzealously pinned.
The craft project that I’m drawn to is paper flowers—they are easy yet incredibly impactful, not to mention inexpensive. If you’ve ever strolled down the scrapbook paper aisle in the big-box craft stores, you know that the color and design possibilities are endless.
