Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, and although I don’t know what I’ll be getting my mom (now that she’s a Grandma, I feel like kid gifts are a must), I have a simple printable flower wrap that will get a hand picked bouquet of flowers gift ready in a snap. I’ve been working on filling up my Etsy shop (look for the announcement later this week!) with hand lettered goodies, and these handlettered flower wraps were too cute not to share on the blog.
My kids are a bit young to really enjoy flower picking (they loooove to smell them though, and it’s adorable) but my nieces always want to pick the wildflowers to give as gifts. Wouldn’t it make a sweet gift to go on a wildflower picking adventure and wrap them up in this hand lettered wrap to give?
UPDATE May 2021: This flower wrap is still one of my all time favourite ideas. I made a last minute one (no sending to the printers!) using kraft paper and a brush pen and put together a little video tutorial if that’s something you’d like to try.
Here’s what you’ll need to pull it all together:

I had the template printed at Staples on 11×17 paper and trimmed off the blank space at the top. I plopped the flowers inside, wrapped the paper around and tied a bow with a ribbon. Super detailed instructions, right? Here’s some more tips.
You’ll need to tie the bow pretty tight to keep it all together. When you’re wrapping your flowers, lay the flowers on an angle as shown and make sure to wrap the piece that looks upside down on the inside, and leave the right way up lettering to layer on top. Cut the ribbon on an angle to finish it off! After these photos were taken, I re-tied the ribbon tighter as you see in the final photos to help keep it together.
These handlettered flower wraps would make a great last minute gift, or help dress up a store bought bouquet if that’s your mom’s favourite treat. I’ve put almost every word for ‘Mom’ I could think of (and google advised me of) on these wraps so there should be something in there for everyone. Next year I think I’ll have to make one for Grandmas everywhere. So tell me, what are you getting your Mom this year? Do you give gifts on Mothers Day? I need some ideas! We try to keep it pretty minimal, last year we did some finger painting to make Mothers Day Cards and then took some generational photos.
So tell me… will you DIY your handlettered flower wraps or print them off?!
