For my first DIY post I thought it would be fun to make this paper flower:
Step 1: Cut several strips of paper 2"x0.5"
Step 2: Fold strips in half (top to bottom) making it 1"x0.5" , I stapled the ends together because I was out of glue dots, I do suggest using mini glue dots as your adhesive

Step 3: Punch out a 1 1/4 circle
Step 4: Adhere (with glue dots, again I used the staples) the folded strips along the the edge of the circle (as close or as far apart as you like them)

Step 5: Continue all the way around the circle
Step 6: Take the remaining strips and fill them in on the inside of your circle

Step 7: Last add a button in the center! (you can also add a large brad, another flower or many other things)
