My son cut the flowers with my new EK Tools retro flower punch. I love EK's punches as they are easy and versatile. I took several of mine on a trip with me last month for a project I was working on. They're the only brand I've used that I don't have to stand up and press down on the table with. My kids use my EK whale punches all the time. Their new punches fold flat which is great for storing them!
I then used a standard hole punch to punch holes in the enter of each flower.
Next I stuck some foam in a tin pail I found at the Target Dollar Spot.
I added some shredded paper, shoved the pencils in and tied on a ribbon.
Here he is ready to go meet his new teacher. So handsome.
And here he is handing them to her.
I thought this gift was perfect as it was cute but it's something she can actually use with the pencils as stems.
I was in his classroom last week for the Halloween party and, guess what? They are STILL ON HER DESK!
Did your kids bring a gift on the first day of school? If so, tell me what you came up with!
