Roses are Red, Violets are Blue

 Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, this post is weird, but I am too! LOL! Today is the 2nd installment of what I am putting together for Emma's teacher. Today's theme was to write a poem for the teacher but I wanted to take it up a notch and add some candy bar names to incorporate into the poem.  You probably can't read it and that is most likely a good thing, but if you are curious, you might be able to enlarge the photo. Remember people, I had to work the candy bar names into the poem and I only wanted to buy the ones that were on sale. I have already dropped some cash on this project and we're only on day two. LOL!

                                                                              





 I had this cute box on hand so I decided it would be perfect to box the candy up and the poem. It already had the cute polka dots on it and it worked nicely with my theme colors. I chose to use the same paper that i used on the card and tag yesterday.





 My creativity had been seriously tapped from writing that AMAZING poem so I went simple with the packaging. Ha Ha!  I simply added a piece of pattern paper over the logo that was originally on the box. I then added a teacher quote, punched it out an added a button. I used two foam squares on either side so I could easily slide the ribbon down the center.

I think she will like it. I will be back tomorrow with another teacher appreciation idea. Thanks for fluttering by!

P.S. Mother's Day is this Sunday, so I will want to share the cards I make as well, so stay tuned!
