I'd Flip Out without you, Teacher! and a WINNER!!!!
Okay...for Friday, we could pick anything we wanted to give the teacher. The dollar store and I have been friends this week and I saw this fun hibiscus print tote bag and decided to use it for the "container" for her gift. I got her a water bottle, raspberry crystal light stuff, gum, and some yummy lotion and shower gel from Bath and Body Works. I thought the flip flop theme would be cute and a reminder that summer is JUST AROUND THE CORNER! Yay! I made a cute pillow box using the PTI die and embellished it with this fun flip flop stamp set and coordinating die, also from PTI. I put the gum in here. I am slightly worried that she might be misled with the sentiment and think there is a gift card to a spa or something inside! LOL!
For the tag, which could double as a bookmark if she wanted, I simply die cut 3 pairs of flip flops. I added some stickles to the top and bottom pair for some shine. I thought the sentiment was cute for a teacher, too. The colors I chose are Barely Banana, Tempting Turquoise and Cameo Coral. Fun, fresh and tropical! Makes me want to be on a beach somewhere! Each pair is layered on a circle in the coordinating cardstock and then they are all layered on Kraft cardstock. Kindof reminds me of a sandy beach.
Here you can see it all tied up on the bag, ready to go! My daughter's teacher keeps telling her all week it has felt like Christmas! I am glad she is feeling loved! That was my intent and I REALLY hope she doesn't think we are brown nosing! I would have done that a LONG time ago, if that is what I wanted to do. I just like themes and fun things to do. Don't give me a theme and not expect me to run with it! LOL!
If you haven't had a chance to participate in Teacher Appreciation week, you could use any of these ideas for the end of year. That is coming up in just a few short week, so now I am really going to have to get creative and think outside the box! Thanks for fluttering by!
