Two of my favourite things in this world might have to be flowers and cute packaging. In this project, I combine the two to create the perfect little Mother’s Day gift!

 

Materials:

- A selection of your favourite flowers

- Roll of kraft paper

- Stamp

- White ink

- Twine

- Scissors

- Tape

 

DIY:

STEP 1: Cut a large square piece of kraft paper. Mine was 17” x 17”.

STEP 2: Create a staggered pattern with your stamp and ink on both sides of the craft paper. Set aside to dry for five minutes.

STEP 3: Arrange the flowers in your hand and tie with twine. Trim stems and remove any foliage as necessary.

 

STEP 4: Lie the craft paper flat in a diamond shape and place your bouquet of flowers onto the paper so that the top of the bouquet is on a point.

STEP 5: Carefully wrap the paper around the flowers and fold over the ends so that it looks tidy. Secure the paper with tape and wrap with twine.
