Special Friends, Teachers, or Co-workers will be pleased to receive these pretty little bouquets and the wrapping is so simple to do.
Find small empty jars, perhaps jelly jars or infant juice jars.
Cut a 12 inch circle from a heavy brown paper bag, or brown packaging paper (available where mailing supplies are sold ). I used a large dinner plate for my template.
Thoroughly wet with water. You can use a spray bottle or just hold it under a trickle of water from the faucett.
Place the empty jar in the center of the wet paper; pull the paper up, and secure it around the neck of the jar with a rubber band or string until it thoroughly dries (several hours or overnight). Then replace the string or rubber band with raffia or pretty ribbon.
I just left the string in place.
Arrange pretty flowers or herbs in the jar, and fill with water. I used edible pansies, chive blossoms, mint, oregano, and thyme.
These would also be pretty on a buffet tabletop or an outdoor patio table and given away as favors after the party.
