Coolest Teacher Gift

One of my parents surprised me with the CUTEST flowers ever! She knows how much I love animals, so when I saw this dog bouquet, I nearly flipped! How cute is this?! Of course, I wanted to look to see how it was made so I can recreate this gift for others.

Looks pretty easy:
1. Cut flowers into different lengths (longer for tail and head, medium for body, and short for legs).
2. Place them strategically into foam (which is hidden by a basket, some sticks should and can be placed at angles) to create the dog.
3. Cover flower stems with leaves.
4. Glue goggle eyes, pom pom nose, bent pipe cleaner for mouth/tongue, and for a girlie dog little gems in the ears!
5. Optional: Place candy or other goodies around the dog.

OWL Gift Tags

I couldn't resist making these goody bags for my kids. The little owl candy bars are Hersey's Mini Assorted Chocolate bars wrapped up. The template for the Hersey Bars was made by Lisa Storms and says "Owl miss you" on the front, and "Have a great summer!" on the back. (I found her blog via Pinterest). You can give your students one Hersey's Owl Bar or put them in a snack bag with the topper. The topper can be found here. Hope you like it!
