Default My14yo daughter is going into the flower making business!

Flower making is just a fun hobby for us, but my dd wants to earn some spending money so she drafted up a business proposal for her ballet studio. They have agreed to let her sell her flowers there--so proud of that girl!

She's looking for a good way to display them, since there isn't a lot of room or wall space. I suggested a ribbon pinned to the wall (which is what we do at home), but she was hoping for something cuter so I told her I'd ask the hipgirl gurus for ideas. I'll do a search of the board too, but in the meantime we'd love to hear your suggestions!

She sounds like a real go getter.

What kind of flowers will she be selling?

Maybe I lack imagination but given the space constraints you describe I'm having trouble coming up with a better suggestion than the ribbon.

Good luck to her.

Oh goodness, how could I forget about Pinterest? I'll probably check out Craftgawker too, but in the meantime we both LOVE this one that I found on Pinterest!

Perhaps she could do a ballet shoe made of felt, and have the laces hang down, and attach her flowers to them.

omg - you've got the best ideas (or spend waaaay too much time on p/interest ) check out the ends of the tails of this bow . . . and it's painted on . . .

Hi! I'm glad to know that your dd wants to start her own business! For the display, I've seen someone here at the forums who made a dress-like hanger wherein there were ribbons on the skirt and that's where she put the bows.

Not sure how much room she has, but I love to re-do vintage frames and put pegboard in them. You can paint the frames any color. I'll attach a pic of mine. The photographer got a most of the booth, but you get the idea.

Also, since it's a dance studio, Jewelbox's idea might work great. I've done these before as well. Here's a link to a cute one on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/79227157...facet=handmade

Your booth is darling! I love repainting vintage frames, too, for my house. I got one and put chicken wire inside of it, then modpodge'd some cute paper onto wooden clothespins. We use it to hang notes on, bills, and other papers.

I really love the idea someone had above about the ballet shoe, since it's at a ballet studio, but if they have a bit more room, the vintage frames are so fun!
