Flower Picks-Teacher Gifts

I thought I would share what I'm giving to my kid's teachers this year.  Each year I try to think of something handmade and school-themed.  This year I decided to make  flower picks.

I created these flower picks with some school-themed papers from October Afternoon.  As you can imagine, I love all the vintage images.  Who can resist vintage report cards, flash cards and details from days of long ago?      

I simply added papers, punched elements and did a little stamping, inking and coloring.  After adding a skewer to the back with some Scor-It Tape I was finished. Hope you enjoy!

Supplies Used:
DP:  October Afternoon
Punch:  Marvy (scallop) Stampin Up (notebook punch) Fiskars (scallop)
Stamps: Hero Arts (Thanks)
Ribbon:  Michaels (Back to Basics)
Ink: Distress Ink, Versa Mark and Copic Markers
