Show us flowers -- anywhere, not just in the garden or vase -- and enter our Flower Contest!
If you can think of a way to incorporate flowers into an Instructable, then we want to see it. The flowers can fresh, dried, painted, or crafted; they can be a decoration, an inspiration, an ingredient, or even real live flowers planted in dirt.
April showers bring May flowers, so show us some spring!
Make a great Instructable and win a sweet Fiskars bypass pruner and an Instructables Robot t-shirt!
We love pruners -- they're a handy tool, and help us trim everything down to the perfect size. Daisies too tall for your vase? Prune their stems! Your bonsai tree is growing wildly out of control? Prune it to a beautifully zen state! Your girlfriend just broke up with you but you already bought her flowers? Prune the petals off and give her the stems! (When you've got a pruner, everything looks like a stem.)
Here's some inspiration:
Got it? Now go show us some flowers!
