End of the Year Teacher gifts

"Teacher Cube with Note Cards"

Ok so I was totally inspired by a blog post the ohter day. You know how when you see something that you love you have just got to go make one for yourself???

This post over on Julie Griffith's blog really inspired me ... I added my own twists and used a different line of TAC paper ... and I LOVE the outcome!

This is a great way to use up those extra coasters that you have lying around and don't know what to do with! I use Mia's Cottage Paper from TAC to cover them. The sides are punched with my Bind-it-All and then tied with ribbon. For the bottom I used another coster (up about 1/2") and ran a bead of Diamond Glaze around the bottom to hold it in.

Front - Used the Sizzix to cut the "H" and stamped name with TAC's Simple Bet Alphabet.

This side has a transparency over it ... the teacher can use a dry erase marker (I included one) to make notes and then use a Kleenex to wipe them off. I used Just a Note from the Friendly Note set and the Apple is from For All Seasons set.

This side had a pad of post-its on it with a little note!

This side had a transparency over it as well. The teacher can slip a photo in it and it's protected. I could find my "place photo here" GWP so I stamped it with Simple Bet.

One dozen note cards with envelopes placed inside for the teachers to write those special notes home. I printed the cards on the computer and then accented with more coordinating Mia's Cottage paper and flowers from the Mini Occasions set. Did you know that in the TAC Catalog next to the papers it tells you what the best colors of inks to match the papers are?? Well this worked great for me .. I picked a blue, green, and pink Palette ink to stamp the flowers on the cards. These were so simple to whip a dozen up!!!

Back side.

All wrapped up and ready to give!!!

I took them in to the teachers this morning and they LOVED them ... I loved them too ... so simple and easy to make! Thanks again Julie for the idea!
