Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Teacher Appreciation Gifts.

This week is teacher appreciation week so this is something that I came up with
that is using up stuff I've already got laying around. Got to love that.
The pencil cups are from Pier One they were on sale for .25 each. Found them
like a year ago at a pier one that was closing.

The flower stems are pencils also had laying around here used a dozen for each holder.
The flowers I cut using my Cricut machine. Made this a much quicker project. No
way I would have done this with the sizzix.
The paper is an older DCWV stack I think. It's single sided paper
so I used ink pads and a brayer to ink the white side of the paper.
The ribbon is from Offray ribbon outlet.
I used red line tape to stick the flowers to the pencils so they can easily
be picked off and used as pencils.

Hope you all are staying inky this week!
If any teachers are visiting THANK YOU for doing what you do!
