For My Teachers

Believe it or not, I have waited over a year for this.  Early last year, Nichole had a post using the template for this "box". Right away I knew it was what I wanted to do for my teachers for their end of year/goodbye gifts. I've been a parent at my girls' elementary school for 12 years, and the 8 teachers that they've had that are still there, all get gifts from us. We love them all and appreciate them so much, this is the least we could do!

Everyone gets a coordinating card & gift box with stationery inside. I made a cute little band to hold the paper inside and then stuck their cards on top. I was inspired by the ideas that come with the template done by PTI's awesome design team.

This is one set, all together. Yes, I love polky dots. And those apples are fun, too!

This is the other set. Same design, just flipped the colors around. The teachers got them last week, and they seemed to go over really well.  Thank you to all of the staff at JL Elementary.  You will be missed!

Stamps: Teacher's Apple, Polka Dots Basics, Giga Guidelines & Simply Stationery (PTI), Ink: Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate (PTI), Antique Linen, Versafine Onyx Black, Paper: white, kraft, Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado (PTI), Accessories: Pure Poppy & Ripe Avocado Ribbon (PTI), Desktop Organizer Template (PTI), circle punch, scallop punch, white pen

These are all so cool, and even more impressive "in person." How could they not like them? I'm also impressed by the amount of work that must have gone into putting them all together. Great job! Worth it for great teachers.

Love 'em! Makes me wish I was one of them. Looks like a lot of work, Mint! One of the best "teacher gifts" I've ever seen.
