Spiritual Bouquets
 A spiritual bouquet is simply a list of prayers the giver has offered or will offer for the recipient. Write your spiritual bouquet on a purchased or homemade card for the special occasion, or make a card with a spiritual bouquet theme. You can even refer to the prayers as representative flowers, or make an accompanying tissue paper flower or bouquet.

  • Card stock or construction paper
  • Markers, pencil, and/or pen
  • Glue stick
  • Calendar picture, recycled card picture, or holy card
     


1. Fold card.
2. Glue on or draw a picture.
3. Write "A Spiritual Bouquet."
4. Inside, write your prayers offered and your message.

 


To make a rose to give with a spiritual bouquet

 

  • Red (or other color) tissue paper
  • 1 green chenille stem
     

1. Cut 7 squares of tissue paper (3-1/4").
2. Round top corners.
3. Curl sides of one toward center and gather bottom.
4. Add another, covering side edge of first and gathering new petal.
(The new petal's bottom edge should be a bit above the first piece, the center, so that the center is firm when the rose is complete.)
5. Continue adding petals opposite each other, covering side edges of previous one and gathering new one.
6. When finished, twist bottom.
7. Tightly wrap the green chenille stem around the bottom.

Special thanks to Mrs. Barbara Schumacher
