It's that time of year when school is letting out and I wanted to make a cute teacher gift! My son's teacher has a heart of gold and has put up with a lot this year... so I wanted to get her a little something. I will be getting a potted flower and putting them in this decorated pot with the flower decorations. So cute!

I used the Naturals and Poppy line from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I colored the canvas butterflies with Gelatos with a bit of water to blend.

The adorable canvas designs were colored in with PITT Artist pens! So fun!

Here is a pic of the rosette strips before assembly and the cute papers and die cuts! I got the pot at the dollar store to decorate.



















You can see how I assembled the stick and the rosette here. I used Helmar 450 Quickdry adhesive.



















Here's another canvas cutie! I had fun coloring this one with PITT artist pens!


Here's how I covered up the tacky flowers on the pot... an awesome chipboard frame with a bit of the paper to back it. I added some stickers for a finishing touch.

Make sure you thank a teacher today!
