sunflowers and colored pencils...

Hey there!  It's Monday!!  Happy fresh new start to a brand new week!!

I thought I'd share a quick little project from last week.  I wanted to take a little gift to Reid's teacher for back to school night last week, so I visited my new bff Pinterest for a little inspiration.  I found a few great inspiration pins and then tweaked a bit until I came up with this:


Cute, right?  And, easy and cheap too.  My kind of project.


I added a little cardstock tag and used rubber stamps to add the teacher's name, then tied it to the main ribbon with baker's twine.  I used a cut wine bottle for the vase so that she could reuse it as a cup for the colored pencils.  I had everything on hand but the flowers.  Total cost: $3.99.  Woot.

You can find my original inspiration and a tutorial {here}.
