Making Everyday Pretty: A New Way to Arrange Tulips

Yesterday I had a great idea for a new and unconventional (at least for me) way to arrange tulips. Normally I would never think to cut tulips short, but for some reason I wanted to use this small, glass, fishbowl-looking vase.  I cut the stems half-length and used one of the large tulip leaves to bind the bouquet together by wrapping it around them and stapling it together on the backside.  I think it looks so pretty how they lean in the vase.  Ah, the little things.

Sometimes a little flower arranging counts when there’s not enough time for crafts.
