Anyway, you didn't come here to hear me tell you about my foot. ;) I told you earlier in the week that I would share with you the teacher appreciation gift that I did for our teachers this year. I just put these together yesterday afternoon. They are pretty much the same thing that I did last year, but I used dry erase markers this time. I want to try to give the teachers something that they will use, and not just put it with the rest of the teacher themed gifts that they all get.
This year, I thought I'd show in a little more detail how I put these together, in case there were questions.
Start off with a can, or container of some sort, some floral foam, and your markers or pencils.
Then set the foam into your container. Last time, I used hot glue to keep it in, but this time I didn't glue it at all, I thought it would be more practical, so that if the teachers want to, they could use the container for something else.Cricut to cut out some 2" flowers from the George & Basic Shapes cartridge. If you are doing pencils, you'll want smaller flowers.
Use a hole punch to make the hole big enough to go onto the top of the markers. I had to do three to four partial punches around the existing hole. (EDIT: Now I would just change the flower with Cricut Craft Room, before I ever cut them out.)
