The next time you’re looking for something creative to give your loved ones, why not get a little quirky and try out these upcycled paper bag flowers? They’re an eco-friendly and creative alternative to sending out an ordinary bouquet of flowers.

While sending a bouquet of roses costs an arm and a leg, making paper roses hardly costs a thing and shows how much effort and thought you put into the gift. All you need for this easy-to-make project is an ordinary paper bag and a pair of scissors. Simply cut up the bag into long strips, roll one strip into a tightly wound tube and then take another strip to wrap around that tube in order to resemble rose petal flowers. Just repeat these steps until you’ve completed a full bouquet of paper flowers.

This creative and out-of-the-box design is a great way to get inventive with your gift-giving methods. Featured on the blog ‘Releve Design,’ these extraordinary flowers are definitely something your loved ones won’t expect.
