Teachers Gift: Pressed Flower Bookmark
Today we worked on making some gifts for the girls teacher. Over the weekend we picked some flowers and greenery, put it between sheets of newspaper and pressed it in the phone book. Today we got them out and they looked like this:
We used some card stock to make bookmarks and the girls wrote messages to their teachers on the back. On the front they glued some of the flowers and leaves.
I put clear packing tape over the bookmarks to protect them. We punched a hole in the bookmark and used some yarn and beads to make a dangle. And there you go beautiful bookmarks for the kids teachers.
I am a stay at home mother of three girls aged 13 (Star), 11 (Sky), & 3 (LT or Lil), and a boy (LK) who is 5
years old. I live on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and I am striving to live a frugal and healthy life. I love crocheting, reading, and playing with my kids. I don't love cooking or cleaning but as they are part of my job description as homemaker I am trying to change that.
