Great for summer parties!
Paper for Outdoor Use

You can find weatherproof paper in many designs: white, colored on one side, or patterned. This paper is heavier, and therefore more difficult to fold, than regular paper. While the paper is water-resistant, it will eventually wear away.

If your paper is not already cut to size, you can cut any suitable paper with the help of a paper-cutting machine or a cutter and steel ruler on a
cutting board.

Flower Diameter approximately 5 in.
