Crop Challenge: Morning Glory

Good morning - feeling a bit groggy from all the cocktails? :-) LOL

My challenge is to complete this fun, fast and frivolous make n take - something to dress up your decor for your cocktail party.

My cocktail is called the Morning Glory, perfect for the morning after! Here is the recipe!

1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz dark creme de cacao
2 oz light cream
1/4 tspgrated nutmeg

Combine the vodka, creme de cacao and cream in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a dusting of nutmeg, and serve.

Start with 6 paper bags, the gusseted ones.

Fold the bottom of a bag in on itself. Cut above the lower fold, removing the bag's bottom. Trim the top into a petal shape.

Punch a hole about 1/4 inch from the bottom. Repeat process with five more bags. Apply double-sided tape to the front edges of a bag. Place another bag on top, and repeat to stack all of the bags. Draw a length of string through the hole in the stack; knot it loosely. (Loosely is very important!)

Pull the top and bottom bags around to form a flower shape and join the end petals with double-sided tape.

Suspend your completed paper bag flowers by string.

Voila! Cute, isn't it?
