  1. To cover the top and bottom of the Block so that it’s white under Mesh, use Floral Shears to cut twelve 8 1/2″ lengths of white ribbon. Generously apply glue stick to the top of the Block. Attach six ribbons lengths, side-by-side, overlapping 1/4″. (Allow cut ends to extend slightly over Block edges.) Hot glue ends tightly against Block edges. Repeat for the bottom of Block.
  2. To cover sides, cut six 32 1/2″ lengths of ribbon. Using glue stick on Block as you go, wrap the ribbon around Block, slightly overlapping on sides and securing cut ends with hot glue.
  3. Cut 12″ length Floral Wire. Horizontally place three yds. Hot Pink Mesh on the table. Bring right and left sides in, overlapping (so there are three layers). Set Block in center of Mesh, and 5″ from the bottom edge. Wrap like a gift by bringing up right and left sides first, slightly overlapping and tightly securing with Floral Pins. Then wrap the bottom like a gift and secure it with Pins. At the top, gather ends in the center, scrunch close to the gift and bind with Wire.
  4. Fold three yds. length Green Mesh into thirds, lengthwise. Just as you do when wrapping a gift with ribbon, set the middle of Mesh at the top, close to one side of Hot Pink Mesh gathers. Wrap ends around to the bottom of the gift, flip the gift over, cross ends and bring other sides of the gift. Then knot at the top, wrap around gathers, and knot on the other side of gathers. Fold under ends to make “poufs.”
  5. Use Wire Cutter to cut Blue Wire into three 12″ lengths. Similarly, cut Purple Wire. To coil, roll each length around a 1 1/2″ diameter object. (Example: Dowel, glue stick, broom handle, etc.) Tuck one end of each coil into the center. Nestle into Mesh and hot glue if needed.)
