Halloween Paper Bouquet

I have FINALLY finished my Halloween cards.  Yeah, I was totally being a bloggin' and craftin' bum.  As you saw from the previous post my craft room was upside down.  Got the cards done (will post once the recipients receive them, they read my blog) and even fit in a few other paper crafting items such as this paper bouquet.  I guess I have been under a rock, because I didn't know even know you could make a pinwheel like this out of paper.  I gave it a try and they turned out super fabulous! Took this over to one of my coworkers that moved offices; she was really appreciative & it looked very cute on her desk.

(I wish the colors on the paper showed up better, they really are more vibrant.)

This is adorable, and it will last so much longer than real flowers (well...the candy corn might not).

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
