Introduction

All you need are small brown paper bags and baby-food jars or shot glasses to hold the flowers for individual place settings. A centerpiece requires a larger bag and a mason jar or drinking glass as a vase. The bags you use must be gusseted, with side pleats and a flat bottom

materials

  • Bag

  • Horizontal bar

  • Decorative-edge scissors

  • Bouquet of fresh flowers

  • Double-sided tape

steps

  1. Draw lines on a bag to make an upside-down T with a fat horizontal bar.

  2. Cut along the lines with decorative-edge scissors. Open the bag. Arrange a bouquet of fresh flowers in a vessel of water; set bouquet inside the basket. Join the two halves of the handle with double-sided tape.
