Flower Pot Gift Idea!

My friend Katie recently asked me for help in coming up with a cute gift idea for her co-workers. She and her husband were leaving Denver to move back to the "motherland," as she calls it. Otherwise known as Ohio.

So, although I was very sad to see her go, I decided not to hold it against her. And good thing I didn't, because look what Katie's crafty little brain came up with!

She worked for the American Cancer Society, which meant for a pretty emotionally draining job. So she wanted to come up with a gift for her co-workers to perk them up on those really tough days.

She painted these flower pots, then embellished them with some grosgrain ribbon and buttons. Then she filled them with candy!

I don't care who you are, that's a great gift. It would perk me right up...until I stepped on the scale after the perking! :)

Those are absolutely adorable Carrie! I'm thinking those would be great for those graduation gifts that you don't want to spend too much on, but you need to give a little something.
Don't you think?

How cute! Very small pots painted white or cream would be really cute for wedding favours!

Fun idea! You could do that for so many occasions where you needed a little "something" but not spend a lot of money!
