Introducing Seeds of Knowledge...

Hey there crafty friends!  Are you enjoying the new Papertrey products so far?  So much fun right?  We have some more fun stuff to share today.  Today I have a teacher gift that was super easy to make.

We have a fun little bouquet of pencils and a matching card with the perfect sentiment to say thank you to a teacher.  I stamped the waterman in Raspberry Fizz and then added in the black star.  I die cut the "water" and stamped that in Aqua Mist.

I found this adorable glass bottle at Hobby Lobby and knew right away it would make a fun pencil bouquet.   I die cut and stamped the little sign and then added it to the glass bottle with some twine.

I grabbed some #2 pencils and added a little piece of shear ribbon to each pencil.  Then I used the new Pencil Bloom Dies to make the flower toppers.  I decided to use Aqua Mist and Raspberry Fizz for the flowers.

These cut out perfectly to fit the top of the pencil and are just snug enough to stay put with no mess!

I can't wait to give this to my daughters teacher!  We have been lucky enough to have her for 2 years as she moved up with the kids.  Teachers don't get enough credit, that is for sure!  I hope this gift will brighten her day!

I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has for today. These flower dies are so much fun!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Come back by tomorrow for another round!  :)
