Quick and Easy Valentines Gift

I wanted to come up with a quick, inexpensive, and cute idea for my son's teachers.  I have made this before, but thought it would be a perfect "teacher" gift.  I'm talking about Pen flowers!  What teacher doesn't use a pen, right? They are so easy to make, and really inexpensive.

Here is what I used:

I got all of this at the Dollar Store, so I spent $5.00 on these pictured items, not bad for one gift

lay one stem against the pen, then wrap with the floral tape
be sure to pull the floral tape tightly so that it sticks to the pen
wrap it all the way to the top, be sure to cover the top of the pen, 
then just rub it, so it has a smooth finish

I wrap the caps so that they look like a complete stem 
I used the decorative accents to fill the vases

It's as simple as that!  
Teacher's valentines complete!

Have a beautiful Friday friends! Love, BJ

I make these in different flowers, and I must say look awesome on a desk.

I've always liked flower pens. They're great for places where people run off with pens, you never accidentally put one of those in your purse.

Great idea! I wish I was crafty and creative like that. And Sara made a good point. No one would ever accidently walk away with it. New follower from MBC!
