Well, the end of the school year is coming up quickly so I thought I would get a jump start on the teacher gift. I recycled this box and thought it would be the perfect container for the contents I already purchased. It's a little fancier than the ol' gift bag! The paper used was from Me& my Big Ideas-Mambi color basics. The green patterned paper with apples on it is from Martha Stewart.
The pencil pocket on the inside lid is embossed with my cuttlebug -swirls. Side note: I am waiting impatiently for my order to come in from Joanns - a whole bunch of embossing folders to play with-they were on sale : ) !!! I found note cards at M's with teachers initial and a luggage tag and a bookmark. The border on the pencil pocket is also from Martha-eyelet punch. I made a post-it note holder using a coaster base and covered it with apple paper too! The apple stamps on the left inside lid are from Stampin Up -fruit set. My favorite part is the HUGE background paper "thanks teacher abc...123..." it's from The Cutting Cafe. The "thank you" sentiment on the front of the card (and inside "for giving me wings to fly")is from the cafe also -"All occasion scallop set" and "big circles teacher." This was a lot of fun to make and my daughter really loves her teacher so she decorated and personalized the card herself. Hope she likes it.
Thanks for stopping by,
