3. A Lottery Flower Bouquet
If you’re looking for an innovative idea for your next gift to your significant other, then look no further because a lottery ticket flower bouquet is bound to make an excellent impression. As for the previous model on our list, we recommend you start by making the origami flowers. Use the lottery tickets as your base paper because these will provide you with an impressive colour mix.
