is going to show us how, step-by-step, to make one of your very own to give to a friend, or keep for some pretty decor.
"One of the many things I love about the new POW! paper is how easily it can bend. It doesn't crease or get out of shape when you cut it into a circle or any other shape. I like to think of this creation as a 3D card. Just add a little gift card and this is a great and quick (about 30 minutes total work time once you have your supplies ready) way to say "thanks a bunch!"
Step 1: After gathering your supplies, cut your paper for the inside of the "vase" to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and for the outside to 4 1/4" x 6 1/2".
Step 2: Put a line of liquid adhesive on the top and bottom of the inside of the toilet paper roll. Roll your inside paper right side in and attach inside of the toilet paper roll.
Step 3: Using liquid cover the outside of the toilet paper roll with POW! paper.
Step 4: Attach buttons around the top of the roll so they rise slightly above the top of the roll.
Step 5: Stuff the bottom of the roll with packing paper and insert various heights of skewers (I just cut them) into the packing paper.
Step 6: Cut various size circles and attach buttons in the middle. Work your way around the circle cutting slits.
Step 7: Attach the flowers and a pennant with a sentiment to the skewers.
