100 Yen Store Craft: Valentine`s Day Flower Box

The materials you`ll need can be found at any of the larger 100 yen shops. We purchased ours at the Seria 100 yen store in Daikanyama.

Step 2: Cut a swirl through a few layers of paper. You can eye ball it or draw a swirl then cut.

Step 4: When all the papers are rolled heat the glue gun and place a dot of glue at the bottom of the curled paper (center of the swirl) then press the rolled paper from the top onto the glue.

Step 5: Place glue at the bottom of the box and arrange the paper flowers. Done!
