Use Your Bling

The challenge this week at Use It Tuesday is to use your bling! I thought it was totally appropriate for the challenge after Mothers Day. :)

I made this gift set for Teacher Appreciation Week. :) The first day we were supposed to give our teachers a package of our favorite seeds. Of course, I can't just throw the seeds in my son's backpack, I have to decorate them up! {curse of the crafter, right?!}

And I hope you noticed they are California poppy seeds. :) You can take the girl out of California...

And my next project is a post-it note holder. I wanted everything to coordinate, so I went with the same color palette and general design. This was super easy and fun to make! You can find the template on SCS.


Sami and I would love to have you join us this week! Just link up to our challenge blog by the 20th! Thanks for looking!

So pretty! Love them both... you are too funny about not just tossing the seeds in his bag... I'm right there with you though! Love the butterflies, of course you throw down a bling challenge the day after I posted my bling card!
