Peach Blossoms

Hello everyone! This post is about a DIY item called the “Peach Blossoms”. Today I will demonstrate how to make a flower-shaped greeting card which blooms open. Now, I know that the flowers are not really peach coloured but rather red coloured but I named it as such because I really loved the name peach blossoms. It is extremely easy to make and can be used as a birthday card, greeting card or even wall art. I have demonstrated all the steps with pictures.  At the end of this activity, you’ll find some microwave recipe as your bonus entertainment.
