Even if Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, flowers should be. And if Valentine’s Day is your thing (it’s definitely mine), then you’re going to love this DIY project. We put together a simple way to present your blossoms to your boo, your bestie, or your bae. And, we’ve added a few free! printable! adornments you can add to your bouquet. Read on to find out how.
- Flowers – Pick your favorites! We chose tulips, spray roses, and ranunculus
- Brown kraft paper or paint masking paper– It’s classic and versatile and stunning with ribbon (are you humming the line, Brown paper packages, tied up with string. These are a few of my favorite things…? I am!)
- Mylar tissue paper
- Ribbon and baker’s twine
- Scissors + washi tape
- Optional: If you want to dress up your kraft paper, grab some paints and a brush and paint the town (brown?) red. We did quick Xs and Os, lips, and hearts.
- Printable tags – These are your final touch! Download the PDF here!
Add a few simple designs to your brown kraft paper. I did Xs & Os, lips, hearts, and arrows using acrylic craft paint.
Trip your kraft paper to size. You’ll only need about a foot for a small bouquet like the ones I made.
Line your kraft paper with mylar and wrap your bunch. Don’t worry about making it look perfect. A simple wrap that’s tighter at the bottom and more open at the top looks great.
Add a ribbon to the outside of your wrapped bouquet.
Print out the free PDF bouquet tags and cut them to size. Attach tags to your bundle with a strip of washi tape.

@anonymous – nice pointless sarcastic comment. Maybe you need to find a different boo? Or say something constructive? Or just … not leave a comment at all … that would be fine too.
