this looks like a great mothers day/grandparent gift/ teacher gift idea. Lots of options with flowerpots, buckets, etc to put it in and with the types of flowers or stems to use and filling in the pail.
I used photoshop to create black and white 1 x photos. I trimmed them leaving a small border of white and then out them in a shape of a 40 for a birthday gift -- great idea for a milestone birthday! Love this idea!
