Happy Easter!

This easter we managed to get invited to Easter dinners/lunches three days out of four! I wanted to bring a little something and thought of buying orchids since they are appreciated in my family. But when I went to the flower shop I changed my mind. I decided to try to cut the cost down at a minimum but still make something pretty. Daffodils are Easter! Roughly counted I saved about 90 %! And I had so much fun making the pots and I think they were more apprieciated than the orchids as well!

I dressed old coffee tins up in designer paper, added some raffia, a metal embellishment and a tag. The metal embellishment is antique bronze so I painted it silver to match the tin. The sentiment inside the metal embellishment is a computer print-out. I accidentally happend to write 'Some bunny loves me', instead of you, and I didn't notice it until the next morning when I was about to finish the pot. I did not want to seem narcissistic so I had to print out another set of words!! ; )
