We recently wrapped up a few of these for sweet teachers in our lives before the last day of classes. I just love the unassuming packaging on these.
The recipients can choose what to do with the flowers - allow them to continue blooming in the plastic pot or transplant them to their own flower gardens, where they'll think of you each time they see it.
Here's what you need: lunch-size brown paper bags, raffia, small flower in disposable pot, chalkboard tag, and optional sandwich-sized plastic ziplock bag(not shown).
Take the brown paper bag and fold down the top two to three times.
Using chalk or white paint pen, write a message on the tag.
Set the flower pot inside the ziplock bag and then inside the paper bag. The ziplock will keep the moisture from the bottom of the plant away from the paper. Tie raffia around the bag, loosely cinching it in around the bottom of the flowers. Attach the tag to the raffia band.
Deliver to your favorite recipients as a sweet little thank you for all they do to make your life easier.
These would also make adorable table decorations for backyard cookouts, graduation parties, or even casual get togethers. Frugal and cute... my favorite combination!
