    Any ideas for a spring bb border (i.e.-to cover up my uneven cutting of the background paper!)

    Thanks!

    I bought 3 or 4 inexpensive spring flower bundles and took the flowers off the stem. I use those for my border. It's nice and bright.

    Sometimes you get ribbon on sale pretty cheap. It looks nice and last. After you use it roll it up and put it in an empty plasctic frosting can. Glue a piece on the outside of the can. It will stay nice and clean and ready to use again next year. This works for all BB borders.

    You can use pastel tissue paper, or any color. Twist it around lightly and it looks much like ribbons, but more fluffy. If you like your children to get involved, give them strips of paper and ask them to decorate them and use them for borders. They could even stamp them with flowers, etc.
