Teacher gift

I promised a photo of the teacher gift I'd put together... well- I have a photo -but only of the inside.  I totally forgot to take a photo of the outside after it was all decorated.  Oh well.

Basically I made a note card kit.  I used the CTMH Memory Keeper box and used cardstock to create inserts to divide the box.  One long section on the left for notecards and envelopes.  The right is split in half and holds the apple notecards (made out of cardstock with my Cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  The bottom section holds the stamp I ordered that says "A note from Mrs. Graham and a brand new Topiary stamp pad.

Here's a close up of the apple cards.  They are layered- but don't open- they are meant to just write a quick note on to maybe send home in the back pack.  Or to write herself a reminder etc.  In addition to this we also gave her a gift card so she could buy a little something for herself.                                                          I'm so glad I took the time to make her a gift.  She gave each of the Young 5 kids a photo collage of photos she'd taken throughout the year- so photos of the classmates together and then some of just Addison alone.  It was so nice and will be a great addition to Addie's scrapbook!
On a side note-  July is fast approaching and that means Jackpot June is nearing the end- have you checked out Jackpot June yet?  Until 10am EST today- the special is a Goody Box valued at $200 for only $80!!  At 11am EST a new deal will be released so check it out here!  The link is to the front page of my website (go ahead and bookmark it so you can check the deals each day!)

What a lovely gift! As a teacher myself, I can attest to what any card or gift means!! I'm sure she loved it.
