I decided to make my good friends some beautiful flower bouquets that wouldn't fade away. Here's what I ended up with.
Super easy, super fun, and super cheap. I got the pots and the sticks at the dollar store (though if you had pretty nature around you, you could for sure get your sticks there) and I used paper I already had to make the flowers. Just cut a big circle in spiral and spin it in on itself (see the tutorial I linked to above). Voila!
