Directions: Start with a red polka dot bag. Fold each bottom corner back, making a bottom point. Tape in place. Fold the top edge down, creasing about 1/3 of the way from the top. Fold the perforated edge under, doubling up the top fold. Fold each top corner back, meeting up with the bottom of the fold. Make a small slit in the top center of the bag, stopping after you’ve cut through all of the folded portion. Fold the center flaps away from the slit, making a heart shape. Unfold and fill with treats. Tape the top folds in place and you’re finished with your heart shaped favor bags!

I have an easy flower makeover for you today with three simple flower arrangement ideas all from the same bunch of flowers — three ways to create three different looks. The secret to this makeover is the containers.


There is nothing wrong with buying flowers, trimming the ends, and placing them in a vase. In fact, I kind of like the whimsical feeling of this one! But if you want a more polished look, grab a collection of your favorite vases or containers and follow a few simple steps. I’ve used a set of tiny galvanized tins, eclectic vintage vases, and (my favorite) soda pop bottles. When picking vases, find a collection that coordinates. For example, the soda pop bottles are all different but they all have yellow or red labels. Same with the vases, they are all clear glass but different shapes. This will give variety to your arrangement without looking hodgepodge.


For these arrangements I went to a local floral shop and picked flowers from their selection of loose flowers. Picking flowers this way allows you to get flowers that coordinate and you can buy as many stems as you need. I chose: white garden roses, white ranunculus, yellow billy balls, red anemones, dusty miller, white dahlias, and feverfew.


Now that you have vases and flowers, get some clippers and start arranging. Here are three techniques for arranging with each of the different collection of vases. First, the tins. For this arrangement pick two of the flowers (feverfew and dusty miller) and alternated bunches of each in the vases. Cut the stems all about the same height and fill up each tin pretty full.



For the collection of vintage bottles, use a variety of flowers (red anemones, billy balls, ranunculus, and garden roses) and accented with dusty miller. In this arrangement you can vary the height of the flowers to create a looser look.



For the soda pop bottles choose a variety of flowers, put only one type of flower in each bottle, and cut the stems all the same height. Doing so creates a more uniform look that shows off the cute bottle labels and the bright happy flowers.




Seriously, these are so quick and easy that your kids can even help you. Be on the lookout for sets of vases that you can pull out on a moment’s notice. As you plan your next party or get together, think about other unique containers you can use to tie in your theme. Teacups, clay pots, vintage pitchers, mugs, milk glass, cans? The possibilities are endless!

They’re not only beautiful as a place setting, but are also a wonderful keepsake from the day. You can get the kids involved by letting them make their own.

You will need: template printable, 3×3 inch canvas, miniature canvas easels, permanent markers, pencil

Directions: First, print and cut out your template square. On the back of the template, rub the pencil led over the back of the template, covering up the back of the design. Next, place the template square, face up and pencil lead down, onto a 3×3 inch canvas. Take a pen or pencil and trace over your design on the template. The pencil lead on the back of the paper should transfer onto the canvas. Once you have finished tracing over all of the design, discard the template. You should be left with a light outline of your design on the canvas. Finally, use permanent markers to color in the design!
