SHOW and TELL FRIDAY- from plain to pretty

I finally remembered a picture I saw in a magazine last month, with a cute (and easy- has to be pretty quick or I'll never get it done!) idea to make a vase of flowers even more special. Just find some coordinating ribbon (I have a box of ribbon in my crap - er, I mean craft room), double-stick tape, and go to it. You can see from the pics that it is pretty easy.
Here is a closer look - easy-peasy. Can't remember which magazine I saw it in, though.

Oh, the yellow and white flowers on the right are from my garden, the purple and white is strictly fake-o-flowers.
Happy Show and Tell Friday! Head over to Kelli's blog, There is no place like home, to join in the fun.

What a lovely arrangement! I love the square vase. Such pretty flowers from the garden.

Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I have a few more Boyd's figurines but mostly I have the Cherished Teddies. Most anything Bear will do. I'll show more later.

Isn't it amazing what a little ribbon does to a vase?

Jaderocks said...

This is such a great idea. I am always looking for something to do with those plain vases you get from the florist. I'm going to try this for sure. Thanks.

What a wonderful idea...I have quite a bit of patterned ribbon that I didn't know what to do with...this will be perfect! Your flowers are pretty too!
