More teacher gifts

Here are the teacher gifts my daughter and I made for her teachers at the elementary school this year. We were excited to have a teacher that is new to the school this year, since after two boys going through five years each, we hate to duplicate gifts. Over the years, these teacher name frames have been a huge hit. We've done lots of versions and this is our latest. We chose the school colors and used a frame from the dollar store. Her school mascot is a hawk. We also added Stickles glitter glue to sparkle it up.

High School Teacher Gifts

Both my boys are now in high school.  In fact, because of a special program they are in, they both share the same four core teachers.  Any teacher that has to put up with one or the other for the entire day, every day, deserves a little something!  This year, I made stockings in the school colors and tucked a gift card inside.  (Cut two of the stocking die on the big shot, then snip the top half inch off of the back one.  It will make it a little easier to slide in the gift card.) Click on each photo for a closer view!

Holiday Treats

I used the fancy favor box on my big shot to create this adorable favor boxes for friends and neighbors.  A few punches and a few dies and you can create an unlimited assortment of these for yourself!  Each box contains a small yankee candle or a small bag of hershey's kisses.
