Now available from Desmet Designs, a pack of 20 mixed paper blossoms for 99p. Mainly pastel colours and contents will vary.

Paper flowers are a very popular embellishment. Why not try colouring them with pen, ink or paint? Layer lots of flowers with a brad for greater impact. Use them on cards, tags, scrapbook pages or to decorate a wrapped present.
