1. Punch circles and cut stem shapes out of card stock. The stem shape doesn’t have to be exact, I free-handed all of these: first, I folded the paper in half and then cut a rectangle with a rounded edge at an angle.

2. Feed the paper shapes (alternating between circle and stem) into a sewing machine to connect all together. Done!

Hang vertically for a party or in a nursery for low-maintenance blooms.
