End of Year Teacher Gifts

These are the end of year gifts I made for the teachers who taught "specials" at my son's school, as well as the secretary, school nurses, and custodian. I found the popcorn buckets 3/$1 at Dollar Tree and I filled them with a bag of microwavable popcorn, a mini can of Coke, and a coupon code for a movie rental at Red Box. I thought the idea of having a movie themed gift to celebrate the end of the year would be fun and different!

I wrapped them up in clear cellophane to keep everything together and made tags to dress them up. The schoolhouse image is from Petite Places: School, the "thanks" is from Ways to Say: Thanks, and "for everything" was from Enclosed: Apple.

And this is the gift I gave my son's classroom teacher. I wanted to do a bit more for her as she is with him day in and day out, and as his mom I know that is a lot of work! Ha! This larger popcorn bucket is also from Dollar Tree, and this time it was filled with an assortment of movie theater candy (more Dollar Tree finds), three bags of microwavable popcorn, a bottle of Coke, the card I shared yesterday, and Red Box codes for three movie rentals.

This tag is very similar to the others, with the same school house image. This time I used a larger tag to accommodate the larger sentiment and also used a scallop border punch on the bottom.

I was very happy with how they turned out and hope his teachers all enjoyed their gifts and enjoy their summer break!

Thank You, Teacher

This is the end of year thank you card I made for my son's kindergarten teacher. I had really been wanting to make a red bicycle card, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I love how the pure poppy bitty big pattern paper pairs with the bike. The bicycle panel is stamped on a stitched rectangle die cut, and layered over the pattern paper which is cut with the smallest of the scallop stacker dies.

The sentiment is from Petite Places: School, and was just the right size to fit in the small upper corner space. The stitched panel is popped up with foam tape for some dimension.

That's it for now, have a great weekend!
