The simplest gifts are often the most appreciated. A handful of violets can translate into a charming expression of your sentiments on May Day or Mother's Day, around which time these delicate flowers reach full bloom. One way to exhibit their beauty is in a well-presented posy.
The petals of these romantic flowers are overlapping paper hearts, inscribed with words or single letters that spell out a message. If you make them with wire stems, the valentines can be displayed in a vase; with ribbon stems, they can be tucked into envelopes.
