Here is what I used:
-vase (you could also use a basket or a mug)
-floral foam -shredded paper
-1 or 2 ballon weights
I got all the stuff at the $store. The Congrat Grad thing is a gift card holder and worked perfectly.
I can't wait to make more. I am going to try some holiday themes like Halloween and Thanksgiving. Don't you think they would make a cute Chrstmas gift???
