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.)
craft paper or cellophane wrap
|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:
