While visiting the gift shop I found the cutest little glass cube vase. I looked at the price and thought it was to expensive for such a tiny little thing. As I kept window shopping I couldn't stop thinking of all the cute little arrangements I could make so I circled back and picked it up. It had a label on it that said chive.ca, so if you love it as much I do you can pick one up from there.
The day before I had bought a bouquet of assorted flower from sovey's while grocery shopping. I hadn't used the carnations that came with it yet and they were the perfect size and color for this little cube gem.
The little cute cube cost me about $ 8.74, but the flowers were left over from other arrangements I had made. The carnations came from a $14.99 bouquet, and the baby's breath was left over from the engagement gift I made for my little sister. I also used one single grass from a few I had left over. I cut it half to make two loops. The whole arrangement has an estimated cost of about $10. I do think the cube is a bit over priced for it's size but it just to darn cute.

|Cube is about 2 inches tall and wide|
Carnations from bouquet
of 6 different types
of flowers and greenery estimated at $14.99/6 = $ 2.50
The amount of baby's breath and grass
is just too small to properly estimate the price
and they were both about a week old.
Cute cube vase $8.74
Tax at 5% $ 0.56
Total of about $11.80
Putting the arrangement together
Since the cube has a very tiny opening I added the water and flower crystals first, which I normally do last. I cut the carnations and buds of the stem and added them to the cube. I then added a small amount of baby's breath around the carnations. Then I finished it off with the grass loops made from on single grass cut in half.
The Finished Product
I had lots of fun making the cute cube into a sassy cube. It's looks great in any cute little locations. Would be great on a night stand beside your reading lamp.
