Teacher Flower Tag - Stampin' Up! Festive Flower Builder Punch

  Last week was Teacher Appreciation week so I made a few personalized tags for the boys teachers.  I tied the tags around vases of flowers which I didn't get a picture of because as usual we were rushing to get out the door.

  But here are the tags on their own.

  The tags and flowers were a good size and super easy to make. 

  The base is Kraft cardstock, the names were cut with the Little Letters thinlets (soon to be retired - Boo!) out of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I used candy dots for the period.

  One teacher loves sunflowers so I made a sunflower for her tag.  The Festive Flower punch made really quick work to make 2 layers for each flower.  The sunflower is Hello Honey and the pink is Rose Red.  Once I had 8 petals for each layer I used the Simply Scored to score a line on each petal and then folded them for dimension.  The edges are also sponged lightly with the respective ink colors. 

  The centers of the flowers are punched circles and embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing flower (also soon to be retired!).  The raised dots are colored with gold Wink of Stella for a little sparkle.

  I used Very Vanilla striped ribbon from the Holiday catalog to tie the tags around the vases.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
