A Portable Flower Box = True Love

Sometimes cardboard and tape can yield the most beautiful artwork! The flowers are lovely, of course, but I am in love with this cardboard box. Or rather, the man who made it (the DH). I plan to walk downtown to have lunch with two friends today, and I want to take them flowers. I had the jars ready, and the next thing I know, the DH comes upstairs carrying this box. So my arms won't get tired holding the jars. I love this man. And, isn't the box just the cutest thing? So functionally cool and beautiful! And all from recycled materials, except for the tape.
