Paper flowers

I used this fabulous tutorial from Ruth to make these paper flowers. When I saw Ruth's I knew I had to make some but with a recycled twist!

They are made from the insides of security envelopes - I have plenty of them after all! The blue ones are earmarked for decoration on a present which you will see once the present has been given and I'm not sure what to do with the orange ones. They need some sort of decoration in the middle before they can be used. Any ideas? I don't really make cards any more so not cards but any other ideas would be gratefully received!

And don't forget to go and look at Ruth's tutorial. She has another for some different flowers which are beautiful too.

Oooo lovely, must have a go at those. You could glue them onto pegs and use them to display your lovely tags and artwork.

These are lovely - very textural! I don't have my 'creative' head on tonight unfortunately :(
You'll come up with something clever though!!
