Step 1: Type up “fly away with us” or other desired phrase several times approx. 1/2″ appart and cut out the text, angling the bottom edge. This could also be just as pretty hand-written.

Step 2: Cut out a 5×5″ square of cardstock of your choice. Apply double stick tape to one side and corner of a sheet of paper and then roll into a cone shape as shown below.

Step 3: Punch hole at top (as shown above) and then fold over the top of the cone to create a nice round shape that will hold the petals or rice.  Fill with petals or rice.

Step 4: Punch a hole in the center as shown below and then thread the butterfly wire through the top hole, line tag up with the hole in the body of the cone. Thread wire through tag and body hole (from the top down). Note: the butterfly will secure the petal cone shut.
