Teacher’s Gift Set

      Of course I did end of the year gifts for the boys’ teachers.  School’s been out for almost a month now.  I’m sorry it has taken me this long to get to posting these for you.  This summer has just been non-stop so far.  What happened to the “slower pace of summer”?  I’m certainly ready for it :)  I digress…


     Adam said that his teacher likes pink.  Well, I’ve been itchin’ to use up more of this retired Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and it goes perfect with Melon Mambo!  Add a little Basic Black as an accent and I’m happy!  And that’s what counts!  ‘Cause when mama ain’t happy, nobody’s happy!  The little white gift bag was purchased in the clearance rack at the supercenter.  They hold a 4-pack of Dry Erase markers perfectly.  I 100_3304just decorated the front.  Wouldn’t that make a cute card front as well?  The butterfly is simply the flower punched out of the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  I love thinking outside of the box and getting extra use out of my purchases.  I snipped the top and bottom ‘petals’, wrapped and tied some Whisper White Baker’s Twine for antenna and added the black bling from the retired Designer Jewels Black Flourish (I wish Stampin’ Up! would carry more of it). 100_3291 I even wrapped up a few more of the popcorn packages

     The teachers enjoyed their goodies.  I think that Adam enjoyed having them throughout the year.  We’ve been blessed to have the teachers we have had.  Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to show someone that they are an inspiration to you. 



All supplies are Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased here unless noted as being retired or purchased elsewhere :)
