Instead of tossing all the junk mail that accumulates in your home, do something useful and creative with it, like making paper flowers. With these Junk Mail Paper Flowers, you are turning trash into treasure. Magazine crafts are so popular because the glossy images and bright colors cut up and rearranged become surprisingly pleasing to the eye. These DIY paper flowers are made using all of those magazines, catalogs, and advertisements you have lying around. Cut, layer, and hold the "petals" together with a paper fastener and you'll have beautiful paper flowers that can be used for decorating anything.

I own a mailing and shipping store so I truly have an unending supply of junk mail. This is a fantastic way to recycle these unwanted envelopes, catalogs and more. There are a ton of patterns that can be used as templates to make all different kinds of flowers.

These are so much prettier than that pile of junk mail on my side table! :)
