When I go to a birthday lunch I like to bring a little bouquet of flowers for the birthday girl. I save my tin cans and cover them with scrapbook or wrapping paper using double stick tape. Then I hot glue some thin ribbon to the top and bottom of the can and add a few little doodads. On this vase I glued a few little flowers left over from a Mother's Day project.
I almost always buy my flowers at Trader Joe's and I am partial to wildflowers. But roses would also look cute in these vases. So start saving your tin cans, scrapbook paper and ribbon scraps!
