Teacher Appreciation -

This is Teacher Appreciation Week - A Muse Instructors - Geeta, Jennie and Lori have shared some great ideas all week long - I linked up to my favorites of their posts but be sure and check out all their many great ideas. Here's what I made for my son's 3rd grade teachers -
I made each gift "color matchy" - FUN! Each gift consists of a post-it holder, two personalized pads of "from the desk of" (40 sheets each) and a mechanical pencil.
The post-its are made of 4" square chipboard coasters that I've had in my stash forever - the outsides are decorated with adorable A Muse Kitchen and Yellow Petite Gingham paper, stamps and ribbon - the inside is full of colorful flowers, a matching post-it pad and flags. Do you see where Caleb signed his name?
Simply packaged up in glassine bags (PTI) with a quick topper made with A Muse paper, stamps and a Martha Stewart punch.
These were so fun to make - it isn't too late for teacher gifts - if you are interested in me making some personalized notepads for your teacher drop me a quick e-mail at msmathey@gmail.com
Did you realize that I opened a Zibbet shop? The link is in the right column -
