End of the Year Teacher Bouquet

I can't believe my son had his last day of preschool this week, the school year has really gone by quickly.  Now let's hope that I survive the summer with my two busy boys.
To thank Tyler's teacher and assistant, I made to gift card bouquets for each of them.  I got the idea from Disney Family Fun magazine.  I had other interested parents send me gift cards to include in the bouquet.  Here's how I made it:
I used the scalloped circle from "Accent Essentials" cartridge cut at 3.5" and the three flower layers are from "Plantin SchoolBook" cartridge, cut at 3", 2.75", 2.15".  I used a pencil to curl the edges up and used adhesive to stick the layers together.

The gift card envelope that the flowers are attached to is from the "Sweethearts" cartridge.  The dimensions are 7.15" wide x 3.30" high.  Once these were assembled, I attached the flowers that I made.

Finally, I attached the gift card flower envelopes to 18 gauge floral wire that I coiled at one end.  I maybe would get a little thicker gauge wire next time, some of them were a little top heavy.

I think any person would love to receive this special arrangement.  I hope this inspires some great ideas for you all, I am really enjoying these paper flowers.
