Teacher Appreciation Gift Sets




New Year, New School, New Teachers,
one thing remains the same

our

APPRECIATION

for

TEACHERS


At the end of the last school year, I made little gift sets just like these!! ABC Toys & Crafts along with Little Red Wagon, Stamp Something, The Pixie Cottage AND Shirley's 2 Girls are all having "BACK TO SCHOOL" Challenges and these were so much fun to put together that I decided they would be a great way to start of this school year.


Each set includes:

10 - note cards in red, blue, yellow, purple & orange

FRONT of Note Card ---->


BACK of Note Card ---->

20 - "This Book Belongs To The Library Of " stickers

1 - Personalized paper clip

CHALLENGES I USED:
ABC Toys & Crafts: Back to School
Stamp Something: Back to School & a DT Search
The Shabby Tea Room: A Little Bit of Metal along with a photo inspiration (I liked the shabby colors which I used in my packaging & I used a metal paper clip)
Little Red Wagon: Back to School
The Pixie Cottage: Back to School &/or their sketch (I chose just to use the theme)
Shirley's 2 Girls: Back to School w/a "Twist to use Letters or Numbers" (I used both on the belly band of my packaging )
.....................Supplies I used..................
Stamps: Crafty Secrets (book lovers ), Paper Trey Ink (teachers apple)
Ink: Momento black, Stampin Up (real red, close to cocoa)
Cardstock: Stampin Up (real red, elegant eggplant, yo yo yellow, pacific point, tangerine tango, whisper white)
Patterned Paper: Autumn Leaves (Hall Pass)
Tools: Marvy Uchida (large scalloped circle punch), Spellbinders (Nestabilities Labels 7 die)
Misc: Paper Trey Ink (small wax bags, 8 1/2" x 11" adhesive sticker sheets), K & Co (blank tags), metal paper clips, ribbon scraps
