So last night, I made these yummy chocolate-chocolate chip cookies and made this “flower” pots to give to BirBir’s teachers and the daycare’s director.
Basically, I used clear, plastic cups (the hard kind) and placed the cookies inside to resembler “dirt”. Then, I stock a kabob skewer down the middle for the stem. Before I did that, however, I did wrap the stick half way with green ribbon, using a hot glue gun. So the part that wasn’t wrapped with ribbon was the part that went through the cookies.
Then I looked up a flower template on google and used it to make a 5 x 5 flower on WORD. Then I used BirBir’s picture for the circle part in the middle of the flower. I also printed out circles on WORD with the words “Thanks for helping me blossom. Love, Birlant” inside of them.
To make the flowers last longer, I decided to laminate them. Afterwards, I simple used a hot glue gun to assemble the flower. I just glue the skewer to the back side of the flower then I glued the cirle with the phrase on top of it.
After all that, I simple covered each cup with clear plastic wrap and tied a ribbon 🙂
It was really easier than it sounds. So, go ahead, give it a try!
Works for teachers, parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc… well, just about anyone!
