A few weeks ago I was helping my friend create her hat decoration for the Kentucky Derby party we were going to be attending together. We made over-sized paper flowers in bright pinks and plums and added some huge paper feathers into the mix to finish the over-the-top look.

They were so pretty I knew I had to create a post for you on making a smaller version of these simple paper feathers. You can use them for gift toppers, a wedding boutonniere, put a few in a shadow box to hang on your wall, or. . . make a paper feather wreath for your summertime decor.

Though they are perfect for some upcoming holiday posts, I am also loving them for Fall.

When I was experimenting with the gold foil, I found that the best method of getting the foil on the paper was double stick tape.

It was at this stage that I had to figure out how to send them safely in the mail.
