Create a floral table runner using paper circles arranged in to rose-shapes for real wow-power. 

TABLE PLANNING

Start by cutting a paper circle for your base using a circle cutter (the size of the base depends on how big you want your flowers to be.) Cut out lots of smaller circles, making sure each is the same size-these will form your petals.

Cut a slit halfway into each circle. Overlap the edges of the slit so that the circle forms a slight cone shape, and glue the edges together. Repeat with each circle.

FLORAL INSPIRATION FOR THE BIG DAY

Start placing some of the cones inside each other, securing with glue (this will make the centre of your flower). Starting from the outside and, working your way in, stick the edges of the remaining petals to the base so they sit upright.

Dab glue in the centre of the base and place your other cones inside. Make flowers in different sizes and colours to place on your table runner.
