~teacher appreciation flowers~

 I wanted to do something for my little man's 
pre-school teachers. They have made such a difference
in his life and personality this past school year.
I didn't have much money for gifts but this is 
what I came up with:
 I found these little watering can planters
at the Dollar Store. I filled them with some
petunias and made a circular tag with the message
"Your love has made me BLOSSOM".
(the meaning of petunias: your presence soothes me)
 I printed it up on some card-stock, put his picture
in the center and had him sign the back. 
I attached the tag with white embroidery thread.  

I had never printed text in a shape before now.
If you want to know how I did it, check out this tutorial
at Imperfectly Perfect. (click here)
 It was just the right size for his little hands and
he was so excited to give them to his teachers.
 Thank God for teachers who make a difference. 
As he starts school, I am hoping and praying 
he will be blessed with teachers as loving 
and dedicated as the teachers he had this year. 

And guess what?
The book I made him was a BIG HIT!
