Many people enjoy receiving tulips as a gift. They are relatively inexpensive, come in many colors, and have a long shelf life. In fact, tulips can remain fresh for up to two weeks when stored in the proper conditions. If you are looking for an easy way to add a touch of spring to your home, consider using satin ribbons to wrap tulips. Not only is it a simple DIY project, but it also adds a touch of elegance to the flowers.
