Many of you who follow my blog might be familiar with this idea from last year's end of the year Teacher gift. In order 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:
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. You could most certainly could use it with a Big Shoot or Cuttlebug and some of your favorite flower dies to create these as well.
Finally, I spray painted some bamboo skewers green and attached18 gauge wire to the skewers. This made it more sturdy than last year's gift. I then slipped the gift card flower envelopes to 18 gauge floral wire that I coiled at one end. During this step, I also added the children's names to each of the gift cards. I printed these out from the computer, punched them out and then attached with some hemp twine.
Here are some pictures of the other arrangement made for the assistant.
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.
