Teacher Appreciation

Heyyyyyy! I'm back. No great excuse for why I've been gone. Probably a combo of everyday life mixed with a lack of motivation. Anyways, here I am.

For the past couple of weeks, my daughters have been celebrating teacher appreciation week at their schools. Each day I tried to send a little something with them. A flower. A piece of paper telling of what their favorite thing about their teacher is. Hand lotion sandwiched between to cutouts of their hands with the words "You deserve a hand for being such a great teacher!" printed on them. But since those didn't really tap any of my creative juices, I have no pictures to post.

However the gifts I gave on the finals days of the week DID get my creative juices flowing so here you go.

For Hannah's teacher: a wreath with various gratitude quotes about teachers and all they do.

For Makaela's teachers, I picked up some Starbucks gift cards and cup sleeves. Then I took a 12x12 piece of cardstock, cut it in half to make two 6x6 folded cards, and added some scraps of scrapbook paper. I hot glued the bottom inside edges of the sleeve together so I could place the gift card in and it would serve as a pocket. I then took some of my felt and fashioned two flowers (directions are here). Placed a clip in the back of them and then clipped them to my pocket on the front of the card. Super easy!

That's all I have for today. Now time to think about end of the year teacher gifts. {sigh}
