Sunday, May 13th is Mother’s Day and I’d like to share a quick and fun gift idea for all those special mommies out there…you know who you are!
Why not buy some unique perennials, wrap them in craft paper and satin ribbon…add a craft paper flower and voila’! You’ve created a special gift that can be enjoyed year after year. The perennials I’m giving to the special moms in my life are Hens & Chicks, Creeping Wirevine and Scotch Moss. I really love the textures and color variations of these beauties.
Here’s the paper flower recipe. Really, it couldn’t be easier.
- Draw a spiral on a 4″ X 4″ piece of craft paper (or paper of choice). Don’t worry if the spiral is a little wonky like mine…just don’t stare at it too long.
- Now cut along the wonky line and cut the spiral from the square.
- Then start rolling the spiral from the outside until the whole spiral is shaped into a flower.
- Use a bit of hot glue on the last piece of the spiral and place it on a twig or piece of wire.
Happy Mother’s Day!
A typical Mark Kintzel design; A great idea that is beautifully packaged and presented with a tremendous sense of humor!
