This year I have two preschool teachers and a second grade teacher to give gifts to. For my son's second grade teacher, I went above my normal teacher budget and got her a new, heavy duty use, electric pencil sharpener. I decided to do that because she really, really needed one, and because she's a decent teacher, so why not. I know she'll appreciate the practicality and it'll save her some classroom headaches.
As for the preschool teachers, I dolled up some of the same apple soap that I made for teachers last year in this post. Since my daughter is at a different preschool, those teachers haven't yet been recipients of the apple soap, and I had a few on hand. Win, win, right?!
I did package them differently this year. I put them inside brown paper bags that I stamped and made a cute tag for. I attached the tag with a glitter clothespin, au la Pinterest.
The stamp set I used is Winter Post and is currently retired, but I love it and still use it a lot. I used some whishper white and very vanilla craft inks on the bag and crumb cake and always artichoke on both the bag and tag.
The paper I punched the tree with was leftover from a Christmas or two ago. I'm also using it in my December Daily album so I had scraps of it lying around. I think it was called Deck the Halls. I definitely know the scrap of fabric I used to tie the tag at the top is Deck the Halls and you can get it now in my online store for $0.99 for 3 fat quarters!!!
The glitter I used is champagne glass glitter and I just put it on with a two way glue pen. I probably should have let it dry longer.
Need the glitter or ink? Or that fabulous fabric on the cheap? You can get them in my online store! I also use those fabrics to wrap loaves of bread for gifts.
Stay tuned tomorrow for neighbor gifts, quick and adorable!
