** DIY Time**

Spring is coming and I bought my first flowers of the year (Ranunculus)!! If you haven't considered these for your wedding, they add beautiful soft femininity with the added bonus of wonderful texture!

I spotted these lovelies earlier over on Style Me Pretty (one of my favorite wedding blogs!)

In a few seconds you can click on over for the DIY instructions, but first, lets talk about how these tossers can be used for SO much more than rice! Doing a candy bar? How about these as the take away packaging? For my wedding I had loose leaf teas, how about a cup to go?! Want to be more earth conscious? I bet you could make a mini version and ad a mix of your favorite flower seeds! A resourceful bride utilizes creativity...Now go make some!!

**Just an idea**

This was originally done for Christmas decor, but what about using herbs or even some greenery like leather leaf with a beautifully patterned washi tape for a wedding spin on the same concept?

Love these "Spread the Love" jams as guest gifts!
