Blooming Gift Bows

This pretty package bursts into bloom when you tuck a vial of fresh flowers beneath its ribbon bow.

What You Need:

Excite friends and family with
gifts before they open the box.

  • 1 fresh flower
  • Scissors
  • Water tube
  • Floral tape
  • Dimensional paint
  • Paper plate
  • Micro-cut crafts glitter
  • Wrapped gift
  • Wire-edge ribbon
  • Baby's breath and fresh greenery
  • Hot-glue gun and hotmelt adhesive


1. Cut the flower stem to the desired length. Fill the water tube 3/4 full with water and insert the flower stem. Wrap the tube opening with floral tape to prevent leakage. 2. Squeeze a quarter-size puddle of dimensional paint onto a paper plate. Dip the tips of the flower petals in the paint and immediately sprinkle them with glitter. Let the petals dry for at least 4 hours. 3. Tie the gift with a ribbon bow, securing the fresh flower and greenery into the bow. If necessary, hide the water tube with additional greenery, hot-gluing it in place.
