Teacher’s Day – Time to show our appreciation to the ones who have dedicated their time dedicating our children.

Let’s take a look at what one Crafty-Crafted Friend’s Mommy did for the recent Teacher’s Day celebration.

Here’s what Irene of http://zekerene.blogspot.com did 😀

Teacher's Day Gift

The genius part of her uses the floor tiles as a 'ruler' to measure and cut the material into smaller pieces. See? When crafting, all you need to be is CREATIVE 🙂 No ruler? Improvise. The floor tiles can even act as one! That's totally NEW to me 😀

She got lots of earrings and bracelets from Bali ready

She wrapped them up

And then she made some cards

The beautifully decorated and handwritten cards

Beautifully done 😀

Thank you Irene for the wonderful idea 🙂

Fresh flowers are beautiful but they don’t last. This is my first time venturing into making paper flowers. Instead of using tissue paper, I used crepe paper instead.

Crepe paper carnation

I used crepe paper instead of tissue paper and pipe cleaner instead of the floral wire.

Accordion fold the crepe paper. Fold it once from one side to the other and fold again.

Loop the pipe cleaner in the middle and slowly pull and spread out the crepe paper.

I used pipe cleaner so that it can be looped around little girls' wrist as a corsage. Ideal as a wedding favor 😀

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. It will be nice to make a bouquet of this and present them to Mommies out there 🙂
