In Sweden, it’s considered good manners to bring a gift of flowers when you are a guest at someone’s home. Today, I would like to share a way to personalize a bouquet: handwrite an oversized message, poem or words (or french? click here) on the wrapping; wrap your flowers and share! These are my favorites!
Black Ink, Ink Pen or Chalk (see example here; set with hair spray)
Craft paper is my favorite but this works with white and other colored papers, as well. Using a solid writing ink pen, quill and ink or chalk, cover the wrapping paper with your chosen message.
For additional protection, wrap the stems of your flowers in plastic wrap and/or tissue paper, followed by the hand lettered wrapping paper. What could be nicer to give or to receive than flowers wrapped in a personal message? Happy Giving!
