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. :)
