DIY Pencil Flower Bouquet Teacher Gifts with FREE Printable

I love to give a little something to my kids teachers at the beginning of the school year.  This year my daughter really wanted to help, so we made something cute, easy, and fun - a pencil flower bouquet using my flower stash and is a useful item for the teachers too!!

  
Here is a video tutorial of my daughter and I making these fun pencils flowers.



My daughter had a blast making thee fun little pencils, and that is only part of the fun.  Now she gets to pass them out to her teacher as a gift on open house!  Each teacher, including my son's teacher, gets a little bouquet of pencils flower as a fun thanks for having me this year!


These would also make wonderful teacher appreciation gifts, end of year gifts, or a gift for a teacher to give students!!  The list goes on for what you can use these for!!


Adding the flowers to the tops of the pencils is so easy with the Xyron Creative Station, it turns every flower into a sticker.  So easy my 4 year old daughter can do it.!



I also love projects that use up part of my crafty supply, and I have so many flowers that I want to find fun ways to use them all up.  So this is one of many ideas that you can make with you flower stash!


I made the printable in the school colors, but you can also print it off in black and white.  Here is the printable link, and it is FREE!!

EASY Ink Background Techniques **Giveaway**

I love to do different background techniques on my card, tags, journals, and mini books.  Here is a couple of fun and simple techniques, one I did on a card, using mini square inks.  I personally used the Brutus Monroe Inks, but any little inks in any colors will work.
 
 
 
Here is a video on how I made the card and did the technique.

This video is also part of a summer loopy video hop.  Watch the videos and comment on each one, subbing each channel (only 5 videos total) and you have a chance to win some amazing prizes including stamps, stamping platform, and tons of other fun stuff!!!

DIY Pineapple Clips on a Gift Tag

I got a chance to play with some cute little pineapple stamps, I am on a pineapple kick lately, hehe.  So I wanted to make something that is fun and cute, and why not a little pineapple on a clip to give away as happy mail?!?!?  But why not go a step further and add it to a little tag and make it a fun little clip on a tag for a fun little gift!  


Here is a video on how I made these fun little pineapple clips on a cute little gift tag!


I used the Xyron Tape Runner to add some transfer foil to the parts of the pineapple.  Did you know heat transfer foil works with your tape runners too??!?!  I paired it with matching colored ink from Brutus Monroe and they looks really cool!!



The stamp set from Newton's Nook is so cute (link below), and it has a matching die set too!!  Perfect for making these sweet little clips, and it had a perfect little sentiment for my tag as well!!


I love that the top and bottom of the pineapple are separate stamps, this allowed me to make the parts of the pineapple the correct colors of green and yellow!  Using my Xyron Create a Sticker to make the prices sticky to adhere to the clip was so easy!
