I always like to make something special for my kid's teachers for each holiday. I decided not to re-invent the wheel and just make a few of my standard go-to boxes and call it good. I also used up some of my retired SU! paper and an old SU! stamp set that I have only used once, I think. I am really trying to be good and use up my old stuff, so I hope this post isn't a total snore! LOL!
The boxes are 2.5 inches on all sides and the height is 6 inches. The lid is simply 1/16 of an inch larger on each side to allow it to slide on nicely. I tied the ribbon in a bow and hot glued it to the top of the box so that the teachers wouldn't have to untie the ribbons and it would stay nice.
I also whipped up a slightly smaller version for my friend that watched Rowan for me while I went and helped with my son's Valentine's Day party at school. I didn't have time to photograph it, but it was exactly the same, just not as tall.
It was nice being back at school with my son's classmates. I used to go in and volunteer each week up until Christmas break and I really miss them. It is weird how attached you can get to the kids...I can only imagine how their school teachers feel. They are with our kids longer each day than we are with them.
Well, enough jibber jabber from me! I will be back tomorrow with another one of Jen's fabulous SFYTT! Thanks for fluttering by!
