I love beautiful things that you can make while spending almost nothing. I have made many of these for myself, they also make great gifts! Usually, a bouquet of flowers is around $20.00 and wilts within the week, these cost a fraction, and last till the ink runs dry. A beautiful gift that requires no crafting skills at all.:)
Place them in a jelly jar or vase, tie with whatever is handy, voila!
You can usually find these materials at your local Dollar Store.

If you have a large group to give to, I suggest the capped ink pens with the clear barrels. What you do is find a pretty and very busy picture in a magazine. Cut the picture out, open the pen by pulling the ink out, roll the picture around the ink container and reinsert to pen.
When I deck out an ink pen, I need a place to stand them up to dry. I place the round ribbon roll in a plastic cup. In the small hole on the ribbon roll, I place the pen where it could stand up to dry.
