Paper Flowers Favors

I made these cute flower favors for my March Card Club!
Here's how...
Start with a 6"x 6" double sided piece of designer paper and score
at 2" and 4". Turn 1/4 turn and score again at 2" and 4". 
Score the outside corner squares diagonally.
Fold inward on all score lines except on the diagonal lines fold
backwards. It will look something like this.
Folding on the diagonal corners, punch a hole through both
layers of each corner.

.I will look like this.
Thread bakers twine through holes ...

pulling tight, tie a knot. This will ensure your flower pick
will be held up write.

I used a die for my flowers, a flower punch would also work.
Use a bone folder and your thumb to curl the petals of the flowers. 
Using dimensional adhesive dots attach flowers back to back
onto skewers off setting the petals.

Continue layering with dimensionals - the flower centers and
buttons on both sides. Tie a bow with baker's twine and attach
to button with a glue dot - this will look like you threaded the
button without all the work.
Tie green ribbon on the skewer for leaves,  place the skewer
in your paper basket and fill with candy. Wouldn't these
be great favors for a girls birthday party?
The skewers can also be
used as cupcake flags or a cake toppers.
They also make a great centerpiece.
