Teacher Gifts...

This year was my first year to do teacher gifts. My daughter started preschool this year! It's CRAZY! Time flies!!! But anyway. There isn't much stamping on these, but just wanted to share what I did this year. Let's be honest....it was a bit last minute. (Don't know why...but this year things have been SO BUSY and I just haven't had much time to do stuff.) Her teacher, Mrs. Ali, got a gift card to Target. What teacher wouldn't love that? I forgot to take a picture of the open tin, but here it is all decorated...
I had this circular tin for a long time now...forget where I ever bought it. But I just made some shredded paper for the inside and put the gift card on top. Then I decorated it using some Designer Series Paper (from the Merry Moments pack) and my Big Shot! That tag is done with the Two Tags die that is on sale (This die has gotten A LOT of use from me this year!!!! I've had too much fun with it!!! :) ) DON'T FORGET!!! TOMORROW is the last day to take advantage of the fabulous Big Shot sale!!!! CLICK HERE to read the details. Then I used some of my FAVE polka dot ribbon to tie it all closed, and I tied the ornament on to the bow. I think it turned out quite cute. Here are some close-up's...
There are also a few helpers in her classroom. So this is what I did for them...
A tin I had filled with some YUMMY seasonal Lindt truffle chocolates. Then tied some ribbon around the handle and gave them the same ornament I gave the teacher. I had a few of these to make.
I hope they liked them! They actually were quite fun to do! Thanks for visiting!
