While attending a family function, I couldn’t resist taking a closer look at these beautiful centerpieces my cousin made.

Once I peeked at them up close, I realized they were made from paper bags and die cuts with a Mexican tissue flower on the side as an accent.

And then… all these fresh flowers were coming out of the top.

So easy and clever, I thought. Then you know what?

At the end of the night I saw my cousin and her daughter with a big brown box. They went about the tables and collected all of the centerpieces and put them in the box for storage.

This blew my mind when I realized what she had set up!

The paper bags decorated with the die cuts can easily be folded flat. And once you open them, you can insert a glass vase of fresh flowers and then put the jumbo tissue flower on the side. They looked so beautiful and everyone LOVED them. and if a nana swiped one, no biggie, there were plenty of others!

I thought I would share it here with all of you, because you can pack these away and then bring them out for all of your family functions. You can even make different collections for different themes throughout the year! So affordable, and absolutely adorable!
