How to Wrap Flowers for a Gift




So I scored the $1.67 daffodils from Whole Foods but didn't have the nerve to ask someone to wrap them up. Here's what I came up with at home. (I had to do it on the sly in the garage because the flowers were a post-performance surprise for Chloe, so pardon the rubber floor tiles.)

Supplies:
craft paper or cellophane wrap
rubber band
clear tape
ribbon


Step 1: Cut craft paper to about the
length of flowers and twice the width.


Step 2: Fold paper in half lengthwise
at a slight angle.


Step 3: Lay flowers on center of paper
above rubber band. Fold a triangular
shape from one side of paper.


Step 4: Fold the other side. Pull taut.


Step 5: Wrap end of paper around
to the back and fasten with tape.


Step 6: Cover rubber band with ribbon.


Step 7: Tie bow.


Cone of sunshine!


You can do this with flowers from the farmers market or your own garden. Now you're ready to brighten someone's day with a simple gift. For an even easier way to present flowers, check out this post:
