If you’re in need of a quick gift idea for Mother’s Day, a birthday, or just need a cool hostess gift. Then you’ve come to the right blog. Wrap some old book pages around a mason jar, secure it with twine, add grocery store flowers and you’re done! Mind you, I don’t go around destroying books, however, the pages I used were from an out-of-date encyclopedia that I annihilated when I was a child. Naughty, naughty.
Happy Mother’s Day, happy Sunday, AND happy day-after-your birthday Andrew!

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!
