Nate's last day of preschool is Wednesday (OH MY GOD!!!!) (SOMEBODY HOLD ME!!). I have to say I am completely delighted with the way this year's teachers' gifts turned out. I had search Pinterest for ideas and found this one that I really like:
I thought the idea was cute and the free printable pretty much sealed the deal.
But how to package it was the question? Then it hit me... I had vases and filler left over from Jon's Suprose 40th birthday party centerpieces. What if I made maicure bouquet?
Remember the Manly Bouquet I posted last year?
Well I took this idea, as my jumping off point. I took 2 of the leftover vases from the party and crammed them full of the leftover green paper filler. Half a block of floral foam in the neck of the vase made a sturdy vase for the skewers. I glued/taped various manicure tools (nail polish, nail file, buffer, hand cream, top coat, tissues, etc) onto the skewers and then pushed them in to the floral foam. I covered up the foam with a little more paper filler. Some ribbon scraps and the printable from the original Pin and the Manicure Bouquets were complete.
If I can find a shot of the whole thing I will post it later.
The teachers LOVED them and that kind of makes me feel like a rockstar!
