This is a quick, inexpensive alternative to a live bouquet. It could serve as a centerpiece or get-well gift. I gave my creation to the nursing staff at St. Clare's as a thank you when I had Scout. You could use stars instead for a patriotic 4th of July display.
Wooden pencil holder box
Styrofoam floral insert
Paper & Embellies
1. I covered the wooden box with paper but you could paint or decoupage it as well.
2. I inserted the floral foam into the box and covered it with paper. You could use marbles, rocks or candy instead of the floral foam.
3. Cut your flowers. I think Paper Popsicles June Mini Kit- Skipping Along (20% off) or Paper Popsicles May Kit- Vanilla would be perfect for this. I cut my flowers by hand but you could use your Cricut/Wishblade/Silhouette.
4. Attach the skewers to the back of the flower. I used transparent tape but you could stitch them together too.
5. Insert the skewers into the foam as you want the arranged.
6. Give your gift and wait for the oooh's & aaahhhh's!
