Dressed up Succulents {Lawn Fawn}

Hi there!
It's our first day of summer vacation here and for the next couple of days, I will have a few end of the year gifts to share with you.  Our boys had wonderful teachers this year and they were excited to give them thank you cards and little gifts in appreciation for all that they have done this year.

Logan had two female teachers this year, and he wanted to give them plants.  
I've been fascinated with succulents lately so we decided that we'd gift some to the teachers.  I wanted to dress them up a bit, so I used Lawn Fawn's new Life is Good stamp set and coordinating dies and the Puffy Star Stackables to make some little plant picks.  I had gotten tiny plastic buckets and shovels awhile back because they were too cute to resist, and I'd been saving them for the perfect project.  The little succulents fit  perfectly. :)

Here are a few closeups as well:

That's all for now... I'll be back to share the male teacher's gift and the cards I made in a bit.  Thanks for stopping by! :)

Supplies:
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Life is Good
Dies: Lawn Fawn Life is Good, Puffy Star Stackables
Paper: Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine, Let's Polka 6x6 pads
Other: Lawn Fawn Peppermint Twine, Wooden BBQ Sticks, Copic Markers
