Simple House-warming Gift

fullsizeoutput_3002.jpegDo you have a friend that just moved into a new home?  Or, do you need a quick hostess gift?  Or, do you have a friend that has been ill and might need a little pick-me-up?

Well, I present this monogrammed box of house plants.  I love how personalizing something can make a gift even more special for your friend.  It just says “you took the time to make it mine.”

This project took me about 5 minutes, too!  Here’s how I did it:IMG_8785.JPGStart with a box and monogrammed stickers.IMG_8786.JPGWith the box flat, place monogram border in center of side of box.IMG_8790.JPGPlace middle initial in middle of border.IMG_8791.JPGNext do first and middle initials on either side in center initial.IMG_8792.JPGIMG_8793Fold box down in center and line bottom with foil.IMG_8794.JPGIMG_8795I took the option to fold sides into the box, but you could definitely leave open and tie ribbon in handles.IMG_8796.JPGTo add height to the plants I was putting in, I added a piece of styrofoam I had.IMG_8797.JPGNext I placed two pieces of tissue paper down into box and fluffed them a little.IMG_8799.JPGI put plants down in box on top of tissue paper and was done!!!!HIMG_8800.JPGHow easy was that?IMG_8805.JPGYou don’t have to limit yourself to plants either.  You could do a goodie basket of baked goods, snacks or fun bath treats.

Do you have any simple housewarming gifts that you like do?  Would love to hear!

Toodle-oo,
