Teacher Thank You

I know most teachers get thank you gifts at the end of the school year; but my youngest daughter has been blessed with a couple of extraordinary teachers. These two teachers have spent a lot of their free time working with my daughter on a speech, their efforts were above and beyond what I could ever ask, teachers like that (especially at the high school level) need to be reminded of how much we appreciate them.
I just wanted something simple and not too childish, so I made a simple candy holder. (If you would like instructions, please send me an e-mail.)

I decorated this one with a layered flower from a Sizzix die cut. Then I punched some holes, added some eyelets and tied it closed with some twine from The Cat's Pajamas.

I decorated the outside of this one with flowers I cut with the same die, topped with some buttons that I found laying on my desk. The grass was cut with a Martha Stewart punch and then sponged with green ink.

This is a close up of the flowers. In no time at all I had two gifts to let two very special teachers know how glad we are to have them!
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

Absolutely adorable, Angie. I really like how you used the buttons for the center of the flowers.
