Friends deserve flowers ...

... don't you think? I'm meeting up with a couple of girl friends tomorrow lunchtime and I'm really looking forward to it ... I haven't see these girls for months! I wanted to make something for them and came up with this sweet idea ...

They're so easy to make, here's a quick guide as to how I did it:

1) take a bunch of your favourite flowers and trim the stems so they're the same length
2) pop the flowers into a cellophane bag and add a small amount of water to act as a reservoir, secure using a rubber band
3) grab some cardstock & patterned paper and make an outer wrapper wide enough to go all the way around the bunch
4) secure the outer wrapper with pretty ribbon tied in a bow
5) present to friends and watch them smile!!!

I'd love to know what you think, so feel free to leave a comment and of course if you try making these yourself, I'd love the see the result!!!

You really want me to give this a try???? Eek!! I'm not very good with things that require manual dexterity but I'm always up for a challenge!!! ;) Will let you know if I get the courage and time to do it.
