Plumeria Perfection

One idea for what you can do with your paper plumerias is to add them to a tropical wreath. Because our tropical wreath features such large and dramatic leaves, we like the juxtaposition of using smaller blooms.

You could also use your plumerias to make paper leis for a tropical party. Or, tuck one behind your ear with a bobby pin. If you’re using them for a tropical party or summer get-together, you could also use your paper plumerias as pretty table decor. Just scatter them across your table or add one on top of each plate for your guest to keep.

Once you craft your paper plumerias, show us how you’re decorating with them! We love seeing your creations on Instagram and Facebook, and we like to share them too. Just remember to tag #MadeWithLia. Happy crafting!  ~ Lia and team
