Teacher/Volunteer Gifts

Recently I had been asked by my daughter's principal to stamp some of our Muslim bags for Teacher Appreciation Week.   That came about from me making all the treats to send into my daughter's class at holidays.  Halloween was treat bags, and Christmas I did treat bags too, but done up as Santa's.  Then when we had the Whooo's Your Valentine promotion I made the treat tubes for her class, always making enough for her to give one to her teacher and principal.  Score one for me.

Not only did I have 51 Muslim bags to stamp, but I also got a call from another local Elementary school, and the principal there also wanted me to make some gifts for the teachers and volunteers at her school.  I sent up a current cattie for her to look at so she could see some of the artwork and some items that would make good gifts.  She choose 4 projects and asked me to make samples for her.  She choose 2 items, the first is to be ready for June 7th, but I finished them today.  Yeah....and I also remembered to document a little as I went along.  

The first gift she asked for was 20 pillow boxes, and she decided she didn't want them to be our new clear ones, I cut them from White Daisy Cardstock.  Then using the current promotion, Dream Pop paper packet, I added a layer on top using just a few of the patterns.  The bottom layer was cut on the circut which has a matching Frame from the Perfect Fit - Frames 2 I stamped it in Sunset.  The next layer on the tag is a stamp from a coordinating Stamp that comes with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, so that was cut out using the cricut too.  The middle layer is stamped in Lagoon, and the top layer in Hollyhock. There are pieces of 3D foam tape between each layer, as well as between the tag and the pillow box.
