Apple for the Teacher - Back to School

When I was out at Staples one day I saw these cute Apple Post-It note holders and immediately thought they would be great for the teachers.  Luckily a few weeks later I saw them on sale in the weekly flyer and knew that I had to get a few as back to school gifts.  I found a cute back to school graphic that I printed and put on the card sticking out of the apple and then added their names cut from vinyl.  It was a fun for the kids to take "an apple" to the teacher for back to school.

To finish it off I stamped plain wrapping paper with some cute school images and wrapped them with some red and green twine, topped with a note tag.

Summertime Happiness

I wanted to make a side step card with a summer theme.  SVG Attic had some great summertime sets so I could mix and match to come up with something that was perfect for a New England summertime scene.

Thank You to the Teachers

So here it is "back to school" and I'm just getting around to posting gifts that I did for the end of last year!.   My youngest son had so many teachers so I had to try and find gifts that I could do quick but wanted them to still be personal.  I had seen these great clocks on Attempting Aloha and thought they would great.  Here is what I came up with for his teachers.

I had also done some cups using outdoor vinyl.  Since these were my first try  I hope they hold up after cleaning.  It's hard to see the names on the sides since I filled them with the pink grass and a gift card.  

I also did some cards and hand sanitizer boxes using teacher subway art from Today's Fabulous Finds.  She has a lot of different designs for many different occasions....they really are great!  So if you're looking for something to pull together quickly, it's worth looking at the different designs/colors she has!

Cute as a Cupcake

I've been seeing so many cute posts with cupcakes and decided I would see what I could come up with for a birthday gift.  I had picked up this pink tee and cute iron-on with the cupcake so that was my starting point.  To keep with the cupcake theme I created a card and bag to go with it....but why stop there! I had seen someone create a cute tea light cake and decided to give it try.  I thought it was the perfect addition!
