Teacher Gifts...

It's that time of year again where I needed to make something cute for the Teachers and Bus Drivers.. Total this time around 13 gifts.. Each kid has 1 teacher and 2 aides and then OT, speech and PT therapist and each child had 2 bus drivers. I always want to do something special but time is never on my side.

When my friend Dawn was here we went to the Yankee Candle outlet up in Williamsburg and it was there semi annual clearence.. awesome time to stumble in there.. There were gifts sets and candles for 50% off.. So I loaded up with gift sets I could take apart and get multiple candles out of.

I didn't get photos of the first set I did for my youngest.. but I wrapped each jar with matching DSP and tied a ribbon around it. For my oldest I decided to just tie a coordinating ribbon around the jar without the DSP.. Much quicker to assemble.

Do you see that purple polka dot ribbon? That is one of our new In color ribbons double sided polka dot grosgrain in Razzleberry.. One side is plain and the other with the cute dots. Sorry my picture isn't great it was late and dark when I snapped it.

I also made some tags which I didn't get any photos of as well. Hanging my head I know sometimes I get rushed on these things.. I put everything in Hot pink gift bags with matching tissue paper and curly ribbon I found at Target. I used some Pink Passion Card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die. Then I ran some white through as well with the same die and I cut that edge off and layered it onto the pink piece so it framed it. I used the Sale-a-Bration set "Yummy" the stamp that say a little something for you.. and I stamped it on the white with Green Galore, PInk Passion and Black.. Came out very cute and I hung them on the bags.

Here are two cards that I made for my son Austin's Bus Drivers.. They are very nice and we really like them so I gave them something extra! This is a card featured in the new Idea Book & Catalog that will be available in July. I changed the colors.
