Teacher Appreciation

This week is a chance to thank the teachers and staff at the school my girls go to, so this year I made the scallop envelope boxes for all of them....6 this year! Both girls have rotating core classes, so they see all of the 4th and 6th grade teachers each day. It is nice for them to get used to changing classes and teachers, but boy...making all of those gifts was a bit of a challenge for me.

I used my polka dot paper from PTI which the girls picked what colors each teacher would get and then they picked out the base color. Once they were assembled, they helped me pick out the ribbon for the top of the boxes. We filled them up with 1 post it note pad and some chocolates which the teachers loved!!! One of the teachers wants to know how to make these, so she might become a new fun!

Thanks for stopping by today and this weekend I will be posting my second project for Creative Cuts & More, so make sure you come back!
