Gift Card Holder

So my 9 yr old daughter had an idea for a project. You can tell she's ready for school to start when she says what she's thinking of creating would be a good way to hold gift cards we give her teachers.

Off we go to Michael's and we got a cute painted cup with attached saucer for $2.50 and a $1 wooden picture holder (for 60 cents with the 40% Q). We took the metal picture holder off the wooden part. Then, got some Wilton lollipop sticks, yellow pom poms, florist foam, moss and green florist tape.

So we used the Gypsy and Cricut and Gypsy Wanderings for the orange, pink and purple flowers. Walk in My Garden for the red and yellow flowers. Flowers were cut in various sizes--2.75, 2.5, 2.25 and 2.0 and layered/glued with Scotch quick dry glue. We cut the lollipop sticks in various lengths and wrapped with the florist tape. Used hot glue to put the yellow pom poms on top of the flowers. The yellow sunflowers and red aster flowers have brown flocking glued into the center of the flowers. We cut and hot glued the foam inside the cup. Hot glued the flowers on top of the sticks and arranged the flowers. Then, glued the sticks into the foam and the moss on top of the foam. Finally, we used florist tape to attach the metal picture holder to a lollipop stick.
