Spring Is in the Air
I love spring flowers, so I wanted to make my own flower pots to showcase them. Using repurposed Hiland Dairy Organic Milk cartons and some extra fabric I had on hand from the Milk Carton Storage Boxes I created earlier this month, I was able to create these flower pots in no time!
