Teacher Gifts

I wanted to share this gift I made for the kids teachers because i'm totally fired up how it turned out. I made them each 10 thank you cards, teachers always need thank you cards, right??? And then I dressed them up in this card holder/folder. I ran across this blog, Hand Stamped by Lacey on one of my nightly blog hopping sessions. And not only does she make wonderful cards, she has all sorts of other projects as well. And that is where I got this idea!!!

Here's the front. I cut the flowers out with my Walk In The Garden Cricut cartridge and added some Stickles to the flowers. I also cut out the scalloped squares with my Cricut. I've had that machine for 2 years and I swear, feel like i'm just scratching the surface of it's potential!. Then put the cards inside the little pockets, along with envelopes, and added a big ribbon to tie the whole thing closed.

I was so happy how they turned out. I will definitely be making more of these, what a great way to give a card gift set!!! Thanks for stopping by and hope you are ready for holiday!!!
