Cupcake forecast - SUNNY

My daughter had her school carnival last week and I usually make something for the bake sale.  Last year was the frog cupcakes.  This year, I saw these cute sun cupcakes in my Taste of Home magazine.  They were super easy to make. 
  I decided to Google, free sun printables and I came across pixelscrapper.  I thought it was perfect--here comes the sun, and I say, it's alright.-the Beatles.  Great song!
Here they are sitting amongst the other baked goodies!

Tea cups for tea-chers

 As soon as I saw this idea in the Family Fun magazine, I knew I had to make these for Teacher Appreciation Day.  How fitting that for my younger daughter, Tuesday was supposed to be about RELAXING.  I think a cup of hot, green tea is relaxing.  To me anyway, I drink about 4 cups of it a day.  My other daughter took these to her teachers today.  They were easy to make.  Although, my first one I wasn't paying attention and glued the top of the cup shut.  Duh!

 Taking a sip of tea.
I wrote You are a great, and she wrote tea-cher and signed her name.

Teacher Appreciation Day

O. had class today, so, for the first day of Teacher Appreciation week, we decided to give flowers for them to plant.  How great that they came in these cute green containers.  I tied the ribbon around them for an extra touch. (*wink)  We got the FREE printable from here.  For some reason, they should of printed out smaller and you were supposed to use a 2" circle punch.  Well, mine printed out very large, like 5" or so.  So, I trimmed them down and used my Cricut to make the background.  They were oh so pretty!

She was very excited to take them to school!

Envelope Bunnies

 I decided at 10pm the night before, that I had to make something for my daughter's class.  I wasn't going to do anything (don't ask me why?), but, how could I not?  I remember seeing this last year at Martha Stewart and thought this was a cute idea.  All supplies on hand except for the envelopes.  My daughter didn't get to help with this project because of the last minute timing.  Although, she did wake up a little earlier and stuffed the bunny with grass and filled them with candy.  I think they were a hit!
