When you have as much fun wrapping a gift as you do picking it out in the first place, it’s hard to be done-done. And when the gift is for Mom…there’s no better excuse to go a little over the top. So Hallmark Stylist Erin M. experimented with a few different ways to add flowers. The result: Mother’s Day presents that feel pretty and personal.
Three ways to add flowers to a gift
This is absolutely the most adorable way to let a little gift-giver add a personal touch. All it takes is a stamp-pad, tiny fingers, and a pen or two to create a bouquet. You can draw the petals, stems, and faces—or let them do it. Super-cute either way!
A crazy easy way to add flowers and keep Mother’s Day cards in place. Draw a vase or pot on the envelope, set it on your wrapped gift (how-to here!), place a real or hand-made flower over it, and tack the stem down with two bits of washi tape. The vase can be as minimal or ornate as you’re feeling.
Last up, a solution for giving a gift card in a card: Grab some blooms to make it feel a little more dressed up. Coordinating tissue paper and gift wrap look way lovelier than a plastic grocery store sleeve, and take just a minute or two to put together.
