Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

Here's a great Teacher's Gift Idea from @mvemother Money Bouquets
Spring break is over and the end of the school year is in sight; which means it’s time to send those women and men leading our children in the world of academia a token of our gratitude! While I’m sure any gift is appreciated, you know you can never go wrong with cash. Instead of throwing money into a card why not get crafty with it and create a bouquet of bills?

To make this bouquet, or money plant, all you’ll need are dollar bills (as many as you want to give), pipe cleaners, and a pot or vase. Plus, if you want to get together with other parents you could simply wrap all your flowers in a bit of tissue paper. Since this is a Craft Lightning project, you’ll only need 15 minutes to pull this gift together! Here’s how we made it.

Four simple steps for making dollar flowers via @mvemother
Step 1: Accordion fold your dollar bills.

Step 2: Tightly wrap a pipe cleaner around the middle of the folded bill.

Step 3: Unfold your bill and shape your flower.

Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 on the other end of the pipe cleaner.

Once your flowers are made simple bend the pipe cleaner in half and tuck into the pot or vase. Since I’m using a pot I added a bit of extra Easter grass to hold the flowers in place. If your having a hard time getting them to stay where you want them, add a dot of hot glue to the bottom of the pot, it should help keep them form moving around too much!

Be sure to mix things up with $1, $5, $10, and even $20 dollar bills; I’m sure your teacher will appreciate it!
