I ordered some dahlia tubers for my mom as a birthday gift, but they don't ship until later in the month, so I made a placeholder gift for when we celebrate.
On its own, the flowers were a bit top heavy, so I added scraps of cardboard and a ton of hot glue to the bottom to balance it out.
Blossoms: shiny origami paper and this tutorial
Stems: green pipe cleaners
Pot: half a toilet paper tube covered in construction paper
Dirt: a couple chunks of compostable padding that came in my meal kit delivery
