This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Around here, we are pretty crafty. Like super crafty. We make tutus…..


and tutu hair bow holders..

and fairy wands…

You get the point.

So when we received this very colorful pack of AstroBrights papers the other day, I challenged my daughter Charlotte to make something “back to school”.

Here are the results: You may ask what a flowers has to do with “back to school” and she said it was a back to school present for the teacher!

What a sweet girl she is!

To make the flower like she did (or a whole bouquet with the 23 colors that come in the AstroBrights paper pack), just fold your paper like a fan, stack on each other, secure with a twist tie or pipe cleaner, and then crinkle out.

I asked her where she learned how to make such a beautiful flower and she said HER TEACHER!

A very easy and safe project indeed!

  1. I loved making things like this before but never with these paper products! What a beautiful creation. C is so beautiful too Mama!

  2. What a cute idea and so sweet of Charlotte to think of a handmade gift for her teacher. I like crafts but you two are definitely more crafty than I.

  3. What a thoughtful gift! I’m going to share this craft with my daughter. She starts Kindergarten this year and this would be a really cute gift for her new teacher. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Your daughter did an awesome job and she’s either incredibly sweet (with her idea to give a flower to her teacher), or she’s going to be a really great lawyer someday!

  5. Charlotte sure does know how to make those flowers colorful! She is so sweet to make them for her teacher.

  6. Very pretty and vibrant colors!

  7. How adorable! I love your crafts.
