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.

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.

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!
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!
