A few years ago a lovely florist decided to bestow a whole collection of bits and bobs lingering in the back room of their studio. Included were bags and bags of test tube looking things used to keep flowers fresh. If you've got a few left over corsages laying around from prom you're golden for a way to reuse those little tubes. A simple gift wrap look using flowering vines (or fresh herbs), brown craft paper and twine.

- Fresh cut vines &/or fresh herbs (here I used honeysuckle and variegated periwinkle)
- Craft or florist paper
- Masking or washi tape
How To Do It:
Wrap gifts in paper and secure with double sided tape or masking tape along the underside. Add twine and secure tightly around gift. This will also help to hold vine embellishments in place.
Fill a floral water tube with fresh water, re-cut ends of greenery and push into tube through rubbery cap. Tuck under twine bow and further secure with a piece of masking tape, stretching it across the tube and attaching to craft paper wrapping. Arrange greenery to hide as much of the tube as possible.
