bloom where you’re planted


I got an idea for the teachers gifts and I ran with it.

This is what I came up with…

I knew I wanted to use one of the flower crafts that were posted during flower week at jones design company.

I decided to try the button flowers.

I found some adorable Mary Engelbreit mini watering cans at Michael’s that were 50% off.

I put together the button flowers using buttons that I also found a Michael’s for about $6 for a bag that made a ton of flowers.

I put them in the mini watering cans (using florist foam, not playdough…although the thought did cross my mind).

Today we took a trip to Al’s Garden Center and bought gift cards.

I wrote a note to each teacher thanking them for helping the little guy grow and bloom this year.

Voila!

home is…a fun, easy, creative gift for the people who help my little guy bloom where he is planted.

    Love that idea!! I may have to steal it some year. I love doing teacher gifts. For K this year we are doing gifts from A to Z. Each kid fills a bag with things related to the letter they are given. Usually fun stuff plus gift cards. William has “W” so he can also include a photo of himself. Teachers love it!

    I loved these on the Jones Design Co blog and had emailed my sis in law about them since she loves doing things like this. I actually like yours better! They’re fantastic and what a perfect gift for the teachers!
