Valentine flowers that last FOREVER!

We decorated a piece of paper with foam stickers and glued it around a toilet paper roll. We cut some hearts out of construction paper and pushed them onto a pipe cleaner and put a button or a bead on the top. Then we pushed some leaves on to make them look more full. The flowers will be too heavy to keep the "vase" upright, so you will need to weigh it down somehow. We put a handfull of beads in the bottom. Voila! These flowers will last a lot longer than any other you will receive. Too cute!!!

Supplies needed:
construction paper
toilet paper roll
heart stickers
pipe cleaners
buttons or beads

Wow! I just found your blog via one of the people that visits mine and we just did something very similar last week. Ours was far more messy though. Gotta go read some more of your blog. I love the use of hearts and buttons in yours!
