A Back to School Teacher’s Gift

August 14, 2013
ink pen bouquet
 This week, we crafted back to school gifts for the teachers. I know that teachers receive plenty of gifts throughout the school year, so I always try to make sure that the gift is not only pretty but functional. We created this ink pen bouquet made from silk flowers and ink pens.  These pretties can sit perched upon their desks and the kids can feel proud to see their teachers using their gifts everyday.

It only took a few supplies to make these cute ink pens.
Some dried lentils served as the potting soil.  Dried kidney beans work well too!

on how to make an ink pen bouquet for someone special.
