Teacher Appreciation Week - Day 2

Sometimes finding or making the perfect gift for a teacher is not as easy as we'd like it to be. Especially when we're not sure of their interests or likes. However, a simple 'thank you' is often the best gift of all and today we have two more of our designers sharing gift/thanks ideas that are perfect for any teacher!

My son has multiple teachers at his pre-school so I wanted to make something that was both fun & fast. I made a card that I could easily duplicate using papers from the Geek is Chic collection.

I thought it would be fun to include a photo I took of my son on the very first day of school so his teachers could see how much he has grown. I plan on tucking a gift card to a coffee house or local market as a thank you for teaching him so much about his little world.

Supplies: Imaginsce (Geek is Chic: papers); Cardstock (Solar White- Neenah; Ocean Tide, Hawaiian Shores; New leaf - PTI); American Crafts (Date stamp)

I made an apple shaped gift container. I used a star punch to create the stars but I also used it to create the dovetail on the ends of the streamers!! I love how all the dotted papers from different lines of Imaginisce work together to mix & match!

Supplies: Imaginisce (Hello Cupcake: papers; Makin' Waves: papers; small i-top brad, i-top 2.o tool); Core'dinations (cardstock); The Twinery (twine)
