Quick Teacher Appreciation Gift........

A super cute, really quick idea for a Teacher Appreciation gift!

You’ll need these things:
1 clean soup tin can
Your choice of ribbon
24 or so unused crayons
Gerber Daisy Silk flowers
Florist tape, scissors, glue and glue gun, hair elastic

For the can:

Super-duper easy. Glue two strips of ribbon on the can, one on top and one on the bottom (or you can use a piece of scrapbook paper too!) Either you can glue the crayons as you go, or you can also use a hair elastic to keep all of the crayons in place if you want the teacher to be able to use the crayons at a later date. Wrap another piece of ribbon around the crayons and you’re done with the cute little holder!

For the pens:

Take a pen and just wrap the florist tape around it! Either use hot glue or E6000 glue to attach the flower head to the top of the pen. It would be super cute to use washi tape or ribbon on the pen too!

(And I like this last picture because I love this "weave" texture from!) This is a good reason to get extra boxes of crayons at the beginning of the school year (you know, when they’re super cheap!). Would be cute to add a tag that says “You’ve colored my world this year, Mrs. So-and-so”.

Thanks so much for stopping by! What have you done for either Teacher Appreciation or End of the Year Teacher Gifts? Sharing this on-going project with the following AWESOME link-up parties!!!
