Poinsettia Pencil Present


Looking for a perfect present idea for a teacher?  As a teacher myself, I can fully endorse this one--only if Dixon Ticonderoga pencils are used; they are the best!  Another bonus--it is super easy to create!  Simply punch two flowers from the red glimmer paper for each poinsettia using the 5 Petal Flower Punch.  I used a regular hole puncher to make a hole for the eraser.

To finish the project, find any container and put a piece of flower foam inside.  After inserting the pencils into the foam, use some sort of filler (tissue paper, Easter grass, etc.) to cover the foam.  Add a ribbon, and the gift is ready to give!
