Spring Hostess Gift

Daffodils! These sweet flowers are all over the supermarkets & home improvement stores right now - so pretty!

I want to show you how to make a simple (and super cute) "pot" for spring bulbs. You only need 4 items: oilcloth, scissors, a hole punch and 2 brads.

Take a 13" x 13" piece of oilcloth and center a 4" pot on the unprinted side. Bring the four corners up (you see them as the peaks in the picture). As you pull them up, you will see that the rest of the oilcloth can easily fold into flaps.

Make the corners of the folded sides overlap each other. Temporarily clip these flaps together with a paper clip. Repeat this on the other side and you will be able to see that it looks like an open take out container.

With a hole punch, punch a hole through both layers where the paper clips were. Then feed a brad (mine is green so it is hard to see) through the holes and fold the prongs open (this secures the 2 flaps together). Repeat on the other side and your plant wrap is finished!

I think this is the perfect hostess gift to bring to Easter dinner.
