- 8" skewers (3)

Here's what you do:
Cut 9 flowers of varying sizes out of your patterned papers using a flower die. Cut a 3.5" circle out of a coordinating paper. Wedge floral foam into the bottom of your flower pot to fill it about half way. Then, lay the 3.5" circle paper inside the pot to cover the foam. Use washi tape, or floral tape to cover the skewers.
Use Craft and Pop Up Glue Dots to sandwich the paper flower cut outs around the skewer. Use Removable Glue Dots to adhere a Rollo candy in the center of each flower. Push the finished flowers through the paper and floral foam.
Add a wide ribbon around the flower pot and tie into a bow. Use 1" Glue Lines and Mini Glue Dots (shown in the Desktop Dispenser) to secure the ribbon in place. Add additional ribbon around the skewers/flower stems to create leaves.
Make a tag using patterned paper and embellish with twine, rhinestones, or with other embellishments as desired.
Optional: Add a note to the tag that says, "Thanks for helping me grow this year!
Fill the pot with Rolos and you're done!
