Sweet Scrapbook Flower Pots
Celebrate the beauty of the written word with these Sweet Scrapbook Flower Pots from I Love to Create. Break out some spare scrapbook pages and use them to dress up plain terra-cotta pots. If you don't have any decorative paper on hand, dig through your recycling bin for inspiration. Newspaper clippings work well for this unique flower craft. The finished pots can be used for everything from office supplies to silverware. Set a few of these pots on the dining room table for a rustic yet trendy look.
