Teacher Appreciation Day


This week is Teacher Appreciation Week.  The actual day was on Tuesday, but since Braden was home sick and Kamrie does not go to school that day I decided to wait until Friday for the kids to take their gifts.  The buckets were made on NSD and then I added some flowers cut with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge on my cricut.  I then used some pipe cleaners between the flower layers and twisted these around the pencils.  this was Braden's idea and I have to admit that it was a great one.  I put a styrofoam ball in the buckets(I made 2 of these) and glued another pipe cleaner around it for the grass.  Then I stuck the pencils in.  I also made some cards to go with these.
