The Recollections Big Bloom Flower Kits from Michaels make making large scale paper flowers a breeze! These would be perfect for a party decoration or fun decorative element at a special event! Thanks to Michaels for sponsoring this post. While it is sponsored, I absolutely love these paper flowers and everything I said is 100% honest and true!
I’ve mentioned it before but I am not the most crafty person. While some of my friends like Mandy bleed crafts, that’s just not my thing. I do love making things, but I just don’t have a crafty mind. If you need someone to come up with some awesome party games or something fun to do with your kids on a rainy afternoon, I’m your girl. But if you need someone to come up with a brilliant craft idea, it takes me a lot longer than most other “craft bloggers.” And I’m always looking to other craft bloggers to figure out what adhesive they used or how to paint this or that. It’s a little embarrassing to be honest, especially when I love being able to include DIY and craft projects in my parties!
That’s why I love being able to walk into Michaels and find things like their new Recollections Big Bloom Paper Flower Kits that literally have everything you need to make big amazing paper flowers including the petals, center pieces, instructions and even adhesive. I can walk in the store, buy a kit or two, and come home and make something awesome like these color block paper flowers without having to be ultra-crafty. And without having to go into my craft room, which is currently in a I can’t find anything state. I just have to know how to follow instructions and use adhesive, two things I’m pretty darn good at.
The Recollections Big Bloom Flower Kits come in a ton of different colors and sizes from yellow to pink and even a nice classic white. Perfect for decorating a room in your house or adding a colorful flair to a party or special event. I knew I wanted to combine colors in my flowers, so I picked up turquoise, yellow, and white flowers in a variety of colors and then mix and matched the various colors and sizes to create my own original flowers. That’s my kind of crafting – someone gives me the pieces and instructions, and I put my own spin on it.
And the best part is that they’re so easy to use and put together. I sat down and made a ton of flowers in various sizes for an upcoming party while watching a silly chick flick on Netflix. They’re seriously as easy as putting the center piece together, adding the first ring of petals, filling in the petals in the middle, and adding the put together center piece right in, well the center. Makes sense right?
While mine may not look exactly uniform, I don’t think they’re supposed to. I mean, real flowers don’t, and I think that’s what makes these so fun. Different colors, different sizes, and different looks to make a fun paper garden!
I’m sure you’ll see the Big Bloom Flowers make an appearance in more than one of my future parties because seriously, how cute are these just hanging as decoration from trees or even adhered directly onto a fence backdrop. I’m kind of in love and can’t wait to see how many creative ways I can come up with to use them in my parties. Pick some up and let me know what you use them for, I’d love to hear your creative ideas!
