Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 7 – Wrapped Flowers

If you are always scrambling at the last-minute to find a housewarming gift, I have a super simple project for you.

Housewarming gifts are sometimes hard to come up.  Me, being who I am, I am always trying to come up with something unique as a housewarming gift. Even though unique is nice, you really can not go wrong with a fresh, fragrant, bouquet of flowers. Fresh flowers can bring life to a room.  What better way to warm up a room in a friend’s house than with fresh flowers.

So, instead of gifting your flowers in the plastic wrapper they come, why not wrap them in a custom flower wrap?!? I knew I would be able to come up with a CIY project.  The best part of this project is I used a Trader’s Joe’s Bag I already had on hand!  Can you sense my excitement?!?
