Teachers Gifts

Hey! Well today is a holiday in the US, so the kids are out of school. I think you should rest on Labor Day, but I sure didn't get too! I have been trying to get caught up on laundry and cleaning up my craft area (didn't get very far there)! :(
But I did want to share the Back-To-School gifts I made for the teachers on the first day (2 weeks ago! :) ) I made 5 sets of these. They really enjoyed them! :)

This is a pack of gum that I added a piece of paper to, to dress it up a little.
A bag of Andes Mints. (One of the teachers said these were her favorite!) :)
Germ-X of course! (My best friend!) :)
I added the first initial of each teachers last name to each page of these notepads.

I am really enjoying making tags lately. I made one for each gift bag and I wrote a little note on the back of each one, wishing them a great year!
Here are all the gifts together.
And here they are all packaged up.Supplies:
Cardstock: (white, summer sunrise, pure poppy), PTI, (white) Georgia Pacifc ; Stamps: (Harold's ABCs) Lawn Fawn, (Polka Dot basics II, Take Note, & Signature Greetings) PTI, (School Days) KI Memories, (Monogram) Martha Stewart ; Ink: (Basic black, Pixie Pink, & Yoyo Yellow) SU!, (Warm Red) ColorBox chalk ; Other: (Scallop punch & Circle scallop punch) Fiskars, (Red floss) Iris

I hope to get some other gifts that I made posted on here soon.

Don't forget about the EBTKS challenge. There is only a few days left to play. I think everyone is intimidated by it. But just give it a try, I think ya'll will enjoy it! ;)

Have a Blessed night!

Winter if I was a teacher I'd fight all the other teachers to have your kids in my class! Not to mention your kiddos are angels! This are way cute!

Adorable! You give the best gifts... you make the best gifts! I will have to ask you for suggestions when C gets in school. I am sure I won't be able to remember all of this cool stuff! I bet you are a favorite mom among the teachers (and not just because of the great gifts)! :)
