A recent oh-so-scientific study on our Facebook fan page revealed that many of you are harboring stacks and stacks of paper.  Use up some of that paper stash with these fabulous and deceptively simple flowers designed by Lisa Storms and posted at Fiskars.  I love paper punches, especially corner punches, but never would have thought to use them in this way!  She used her flowers to embellish a festive spring wreath, but you could also display them as a bouquet or put them on gifts in place of bows.  [how to make punched paper flowers]
