A cute teacher gift and Jaded Blossom challenge

Hi out there!!!  Well, I had to add something else cute to my teacher gifts for the end of the year.  My kids had awesome teachers this year (like always), so I wanted to add something handmade.  Since I was doing this...I also decided to enter the Jaded Blossom challenge for the month using at least 3 flowers. :)  I made a bouquet of flower pencils to put in a gifts basket for our teachers.  I hope you like it. 

I got the little flower pot in the Target dollar spot.  I put some styrofoam in the bottom, cut out some cute flowers on the Cricut (I used the Doodlecharms cartridge) and hole punched them to fit through the erasers.
Put some tulle around the bottom and tied it off with a ribbon....and done!

For the tag, I just cut out a larger flower and used Jaded Blossom's wonderful Teacher Appreciation Set (AGAIN!)...with the apple circle and the "thanks for helping me grow" sentiment.

I hope you all like this super quick and cute Teacher gift.  Please also check out Jaded Blossom!  I'm a big fan. :)

Jaded Blossom - Customer Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Thank you for hoping along on the Jaded Blossom blog hop!

This week was Teacher Appreciation week at my son's school and I was one of the parents in charge of showing our teachers some Appreciation. The Jaded Blossom "Teacher Appreciation" stamp set came in handy to say the least! 

On Monday all the teachers got these sour cream containers! The paper is apple print. Inside are Hershey Hugs. The sentiment was perfect! 

On Tuesday all the teachers got a water bottle with a tea packet attached! 

Here is a close up. I stamped the apple circle in red and the sentiment in black. 

And on Wednesday all the teachers got these little mint baggies. 

I didn't have a chance to make a tag for it but wanted to share what I made the teachers yesterday. They got these apples with homemade carmel dip. I got the idea off of Pinterest. Click Here for the recipe

Thanks for checking out my blog hop the hop! Don't forget there are prizes that Jaded Blossom is giving away. All you have to do is comment on all the blogs to be eligible to win!
