I love this quote. Indeed, God created the most divine creations! For gifts to your Wife, Mother, Daughters, Grandmothers, Aunts for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or her birthday, flowers are one of the most given gifts.
Buying flowers already arranged in a vase can become very expensive. I always love buying fresh flowers from Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Aldi and Kroger. I love the flowers they put out in buckets. When I come home, I quickly arrange them in my own vases. To give a gift of fresh flowers, place and arrange in a beautiful vase. If you don’t have a vase, create your own flower wrap.
Your flowers wrapped in beautiful paper and/or ribbon will touch any woman’s heart. You may even have some brown paper or neutral wrapping paper left over from Christmas that you can use also. Here, I show you three very simple ways to wrap your own flowers:
You will need:
- Wrapping Paper or Tissue Paper
Wrap with wrapping paper or tissue Paper:
- Head over to your office supply storage and pull out some leftover gift wrapping paper or tissue paper of any color or design.
- Cut into a rectangle shape.
- Place flower bouquet in center of a corner.
- You can chose to fold the bottom part towards the front of bouquet first. (I chose not to as I like the stems to stick out).
- Now fold left corner to center of front of flower bouquet.
- Fold right corner to center of front of flower bouquet.
- Cut some twine with scissors.
- Wrap twine around your paper and flowers and tie a bow.
Wrap with twine:
- Grab bouquet of flowers and arrange.
- Wrap flower stems at the bottom with a rubber band to secure in place.
- wrap the end of twine around stems to form a small bow.
- Wrap twine all around the bouquet until you like the thickness of wrap.
- Secure end of twine by wrapping under one piece of twine.
- Cut a separate piece long enough to wrap a bow at the end.
That is all. You can also write on tissue paper like I did below. The possibilities are endless.
