  1. Paper Liners

    Hide

    Here's a quick and easy way to brighten your work space: Measure the dimensions of a clear, straight-sided drinking glass, and cut a piece of card stock to the vessel's height and circumference. Next, cut a piece of decorative paper to the same height as the glass and 1 inch longer than its circumference. Center the card stock on the back of the decorative paper; fold excess paper over the edges of the card stock, and secure with double-sided tape. Line the glass with paper, and fill with supplies.

  2. Sentimental Valentine's Day Wheel

    Hide

    Hundreds of years ago, astronomers fashioned volvelles -- wheels of paper that worked like circular slide rules -- to help track the movement of the planets. This version of a volvelle conceals rotating endearments along with phrases and symbols that convey your affection with a turn of the wheel.

  3. Fabric Wrapper for Plant Pots

    Hide

    Plants make an ideal gift at this time of year, but foil wrappers can detract from their earthy beauty. Instead, cover plastic pots in a neutral-colored fabric such as muslin or burlap.

    Lucky Plant Gift

    Hide

    Wish someone an auspicious new year with a jade plant, Crassula ovata. This easy-care succulent is said to bring prosperity. 

    To wrap the pot, place it on a square sheet of decorative paper. Bring up two opposite corners, and secure to the pot with double-sided tape. 

    Fold the other two flaps as shown; tape. Tie gold cord around the pot, and add a tag with a message.

  5. Amaryllis Candle Centerpiece

    Hide

    With the help of these candle and flower centerpieces, the whole table will shine. For each one, use candle wax to attach a small floral frog to the center of a shallow bowl. Push a taper into the floral frog to secure. Pour water into the bowl. Clip amaryllis blooms (or other large flowers) from their stems, and arrange them in the bowl around the candle.

    Place a piece of clear tape over a lid, and use a marker to create a pattern of holes. With a pushpin, pierce the lid at each mark. Remove tape, and head to the picnic.
