Thank you, Teacher!

It has finally come to end! School is officially out tomorrow! Yipee! I have to admit that I am really tired of homework, waking up early and school in general. I quickly made a couple of Teacher thank-you gifts for my kiddos to take to school tomorrow. I got each teacher a gift card, but decided that it would be fun to add a few nuggets to the bottom of each box. I quickly gave them a face lift by stamping some address labels using Papetrey Ink's Limitless Labels set. I also used the Teacher sentiment from that set as well. The tree is from PTI's Father Knows Best set. I dressed the tree up with three buttons threaded with linen thread to mimic apples. The other sentiment is from SU!'s Thank You Kindly set.

My husband was out buying the gift cards, so I tried to remember roughly how big the Barnes and Noble gift cards I got for Father's Day. I did pretty good; this box measures 4 by 4 1/2. It was the perfect size to fit 12 nuggets and the gift card enclosure on top. I thought the ruler twill was the perfect finishing touch!

I have to make three other little Thank You gifts, so I will share those when I get them done! Thanks for fluttering by!
