Flower Bulb Gift and Giveaway

{Package bulbs as a cute gift}
This post is brought to you by FloraCraft® as part of their Make it: Fun® Team




 I love every month when a mystery box of foam supplies and shapes shows up at my door step. I have to admit I was totally stumped at first knowing I was supposed to come up with a gift idea to share with you. I had to think about it for a few days, even started playing around with a few of the shapes, but nothing was quite coming together until I made these flower bulb gifts. They’re easy, adorable, thoughtful, and you can make several of them at once and pass them out to some friends this weekend!


Supplies:
FloraCraft® Make It:Fun® 1 inch Foam Balls
FloraCraft® Diamond Dust® Glitter
FloraCraft® Burlap Garland
FloraCraft® StyroGlue®
FloraCraft® Jute Twine
Tissue Paper
Floral wire or twist ties with the paper torn off.
Flower bulbs
Toothpicks

Start by making the flower centers sparkle. Push a foam ball a little bit onto a toothpick and spread a layer of glue on the ball. Then roll in the Diamond Dust and tap to remove excess. Let dry.

Cut an 8 inch piece of burlap and wrap up one flower bulb inside, tying the top with twine.

Cut tissue paper. For one flower you need two 4 inch circles and two 3 inch circles. Cut 5 slits around each circle, crumple slightly and layer with the small circles on top. Secure with a tiny drop of glue between each layer. Poke a hole through the middle and insert the wire through the flower. Put a drop of glue on the front end of the wire and push the glittered foam ball on to secure. Wrap the back end of the wire around the tie.


Print out a small tag with the planting instructions from the bulb package and attach it to the gift.

So I hope you’ll get on out there pass around some gifts to friends, neighbors, teachers—anyone! Who would you like to make these for?
