Everyone loves receiving a handwritten note. Whether you're a middle schooler passing a note that says, "Do you like me? Check 'Yes,' 'No,' or 'Maybe,'" or writing a letter to a loved one you haven't seen in years, there's something about handwritten messages that's more sincere than text or email will ever be. One of the most fun parts of giving someone a note is the presentation. You can seal it in an envelope, tape it to the mirror, or hide it in their lunchbox for them to find later.
That's why we were so excited when Dave from DaveHax showed us a fun new way to deliver little notes to friends and loved ones. Dave cuts tiny paper flowers and folds their petals towards the center. At first, it looks like a strange way to fold a note, but when he drops it in water, these things bloom like real flowers. Of course, you don't have to write notes on these little flowers - after all, watching them bloom is a fun enough craft itself.
Dave recommends coloring them to make them look like flowers and dropping multiple in water at the same time. Worried about wasting a bunch of paper? Once you've let them "bloom," simply take them out of the water, let them dry, and use them again! So, the next time you want to leave someone a note, why not make it a flower that's bursting with life?
