Thanks to everyone who blog-hopped to my Mad Tea Party! And a HUGE thank you to Vanessa for hosting - it was SO much fun!
I hope you will forgive me being so late in posting the giveaway winner but I spent a long weekend at my friend's house with her and her 6 week old baby. That's a pretty good excuse, hmm?
And the winner is....

On to the idea!
For all of us Americans our 4th of July Independence Day celebration usually means a barbecue, a picnic, some kind of gathering in the sunny outdoors. I don't know about you, but my plastic utensils are all completely mismatched now. I refuse to buy new when these will do but I'd like it to look less like I ran around to camp or picnic sites stealing a knife here and a fork there. To add a little unification and to take some of the hassle out of the food line I bundled the utensil sets inside a napkin and bound it together with a festive paper flower in flag colors.
The flower I made using the same instructions from this post. Instead of leaving them white as I did there, I watered down some acrylic craft paint and applied it like I did in this post. Do you like how I'm making you run all over my old posts to get to the finish line? I promise I'm not just being mean. :)
When your flowers are ready this is how I wrapped them:
