Teacher Appreciation Gifties


I know this is a week late, but better late than never. Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week. I truly appreciate my children's teachers. They are great with my kids, and the things they do, I believe, often go beyond their professional duty. 

I decided to make them a little treat, but I had no idea what I was going to do. I ended up using the small pocket from Keeping Tabs.  Because I don't have a printer that takes PTI cardstock, I had to tape the template and make the cuts. Booooo! I only had to make ten, however. It ended up taking about two hours to cut everything: cardstock and patterned paper. 

I used PTI felt and Tiny Tags to create accents and stuffed the pockets with Crackerfuls (our family's favorite) and hot chocolate.  

Project Details: (All supplies PTI unless otherwise noted.)
Stamps: Tiny Tags
Ink: Pure Poppy
Paper: Golden Harvest, Material Girl (Cosmo Cricket)
Other: Scarlet Jewel Felt, Orange Zest Felt,

This is a great idea! I had forgotten all about those great templates. I like that you thought to use the pocket this way. I'm sure they loved it.
