The lovely lady who made my wedding invitations has opened her own invitation shop, and has invited us to a cocktail party for the opening this Friday! I'm racking my brains trying to think of a thoughtful gift to bring along, preferably something craftable. Does anyone have any suggestions? Huh

it is usual to give flowers for a shop-warming-party. But! you could give flowers from tea or pralines or candy.
Depends on the fact, what the person you will give that "bouquet" to likes most.

Either you get a flower bouquet and add some little tea bags (nicely wrapped in transparent foil) or you make your flowers from candy and make a bouquet by yourself.

All you will need is transparent foil (for presents or kitchen-wrapper), florist wire, tape and candy (or whatever). Wrap the candy in foil, bind with florist wire. Leave a long end of florist wire as stalk. Add some greens from a bush or tree and bind a bouquet.

If this sounds a little hard to do, you could also bake some bread or cake in a flowerpot. Attach a candy-flower or marshmellow-flower. This will look like a flower-pot.
In case the person likes cactuses and almond-paste one could make cactuses Mix almondpaste with powdered-suga and with green food-color. Form little catuses. Attach some sugar-flowers with icing and "plant" them in small flower pots. Looks great too.
