Lunch Bag Flowers

Surprise Me!

Lunch bag flowers (or in this case lunch bag stars) are my go to simple and inexpensive party decoration! They are perfect Fourth of July decorations or make them out of white lunch bags for beautiful bridal shower decorations. Give the white lunch sack flowers a few cuts along the edge and they make wonderful lunch bag snowflakes.
