flower that won't die!!

These are my kinda flowers...the ones that won't die and don't need any attention at all but always look good! I made this cute bouquet for Tyson's teacher. He has insisted for quite some time that she needed a "flower bouquet"! So I decided to just take some time yesterday and get it done! He is such a thoughtful little guy...he was so eager to get to school today to give them to his teacher and he was proud to report when he came home that she said "It made her year, mom...not just her day but her whole year!!!" What a sweet little thing! I used the big blossom stamp from last years Sale-a-bration catalog. I used a 12x12 sheet of paper to make the flower holder. I just scored each side of the paper at 4 & 8 inches and cut a few of the scores lines and it turns into this super simple little box.
Hope your Tuesday is terrific...the weather is sooo gorgeous today that we are having an early dinner and then heading to the park to play for a while!!
