Paper Parties
Party poppers are typically found at New Year’s Eve parties, but dressing them as flowers certainly gives them a summery look. Oh-so-pretty in bright colours, these poppers double as party decorations and are great fun for guests to pop at festive moments.

If you love confetti and flowers as much as I do, then you need to try these flower poppers now. I like to put a pile in the centre of the table as décor, and then get everyone to pop them later to celebrate.

  • Step 1

    Using the circular end of a party popper as a template 
(the end opposite the string), trace and cut out circles of black paper.

  • Step 2

    Cut a strip of tissue paper 4cm (1½in) wide and long enough to wrap twice around the circumference of the party popper. Use fringing scissors or normal scissors to fringe the strip widthways, cutting about two-thirds of the way through. Wrap the strip around the popper so that the fringing protrudes beyond the end, and secure with double-sided tape.

  • Step 3

Using the petal template, cut out the flower petals from yellow paper.

  • Step 4

    Curl the petals individually by placing a pen or pencil across the top of each petal, as shown opposite. Using your thumb and index finger, hold the pencil and petal together and lightly roll towards the centre.

  • Step 5

    Wrap the petals around the fringing on the party popper, securing with double-sided tape.

  • Step 6

    Wrap floral tape around the rest of the party popper 
to cover it completely.

  • Step 7

    Use double-sided tape to stick the black circle of 
paper into the centre of the flower to cover the end 
of the popper.
