Create an arrangement without foam. Simply wrap a clear or black hair tie around the stems, then let the flowers naturally fall. Great for wide-mouth vases.

File Sorter as Cupboard Organizer


Save space and stay organized. Whether drying items on the counter, or placing them in cupboard, this easy fix will keep your kitchen looking good and leave you feeling organized.
