Teacher Appreciation Week Gift



With everything that's been going on with my health and the never-ending trips to the doctor, I barely got this finished off last week to give to Kyle's teacher this past Friday. I did this darling little boxed card set that a found a fabulous tutorial for on Dannie's blog. There's room for some standard invitation sized cards, some 3X3 cards and some gift tags. I did all of it with one sheet of patterned paper and 4 colours of cardstock.




It has a little spot for some 3X3 gift cards, but I couldn't find envelopes anywhere locally and didn't have time to order them. I thankfully found a great little blog that has a fabulous tutorial and you get 3 envelopes out of one 8.5 X 11 sheet of light cardstock - perfect!

The last thing I made was an actual card to go with this that I gave her with the present. I'm really happy with how this turned out and it was so much easier than I expected!

You'll be seeing more of this little project!
Cheers,

I am a teacher and I would so prefer this over the odd and end candles, candy and such I usually because you can tell you really put a lot of time and effort into it. Great job!
Hope your health improves soon too!
