Teacher Gift...

Well once again I am slow in posting. This holiday season has just been crazy busy. I get done what I can, but it's never enough. :) I am sure you ALL know how that goes!!!! Anyway...this is my daughter's last year of preschool. She starts KINDERGARTEN next year!!! (Yeah...really don't want to talk about that.) Anyway...in her class there she has her teacher and two helpers. So of course I had to make them each something for Christmas. First of all let me show you their gift all packaged up...
It is an assortment of some hot chocolate stuff, an ornament, a tin of tags, and a gift card for the teacher. (The helpers got everything but the gift card.) I want to show you this tin of tags cause I'm kinda in love. :) ) Here is the front of the tin...
HOW CUTE! :) I actually embossed RIGHT onto the tin! I stamped the snowflakes from "Serene Snowflake" set in VersaMark ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. So it's just a pretty shimmer on the tin. (And by the way...the tins that I used are for sale on the Clearance Rack here... http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?email=ashleyann423%40gmail.com&phone=801.404.1394 ) Here is a bit of a close-up...HOW MUCH FUN IS THAT??!!! For the ornament on the front, I also embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder so it shimmered. Then I just colored in the "joy" with my Chocolate Chip marker and added a pearl for the "O". Used my Top Note die and my Big Shot to finish off the cover. Here are all three of the tins...

Then when you open it up, this is what you see...
The tags are the same as the cover, just used different papers. (They are all from the Jolly Holiday paper pack.) Here are some of the tags out....
I used the Jumbo Eyelets in the corner, with some retired Rope Twine stuff from last year. (LOVE that stuff!!!!) Each tin had 4 tags in it. I LOVE how they turned out and hope they did too!!!!
I know it's a bit late for you to use these as teacher gifts for this year. BUT....I am sure some of you still have wrapping to do (like me!!!!) and maybe it will help with your gifts. :) Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy!!!
