A First Today

Today is my daughter's first day of school with her classmates and her teacher.  It's also parent orientation, so they won't keep the normal schedule, but it is her first day!  She's excited to pick out her clothes for today and I am sure she will want her hair fixed extra fancy.  She's already received well wishing e-mail from her grandparents and when she wakes, I'm sure will "hit the deck running"!  So, in order to feed the crafty little bug she got from her Mommy and to keep up with the before school excitement we made a vase and some paper flowers to give to her teacher.  I didn't come up with this idea originally, I saw Sarah Martina Parker do it here.  Instead of using a hot glue gun, I used my beloved scor-tape.  I love that stuff and my daughter's teacher could use the pencils when she is all done with the vase!  The tag hanging from ribbon is one of the tiny sweet scallop tags that I stamped with the outline stamp from Tag Time, also by Verve.  I used an apple from an older SU set and called it good.  The flowers were easy with pipe cleaner, a rectangle piece of yellow for the flower center and 12 hand cut circles in colors picked out by my daughter.  Then there was some poking and scrunching and it was all good!
Thanks for stopping by!
