For years, I have been saving paper sample catalogs thinking I'd use them for a collage or some such purpose. Today's flowers were the perfect time to start putting them to use!

I started with a "blue steel" one:

These would be so cute to use for gift toppers, or maybe even CUPCAKE toppers! :) I think they'd also be really cute in a vase.
