I should save this for my weekend stashbusting roundup, but I really can’t wait! Check out these amazing flowers that Nicole made while she was working on busting her stash! I love the innovation involved in taking a humble material like the paper towel and transforming it into something so colorful and whimsical. I am digging the combination of elements on each flower: burlap, dyed paper towels, buttons, faux flowers, netting, and more (and I like how Nicole arranged the flowers on a dollar store wreath, too)!  [click here for the tutorial at Made by Nicole]

If you’re having trouble getting inspired by your stash, look no further than your recycling pile and a roll of paper towels, and try making some of these flowers! They seem like such a fun playtime activity!
