Here's a little thank you card and gift that I put together for a teacher at our school who really handled a rough situation expertly. I wanted to show her my appreciation, so I came up with these small, inexpensive things to express my thanks.
First, the card:
My Creative Time's "Small Talk" stamp set. I then cut that Kraft square out and tied the twine around. If you haven't visited Annie's Paper Boutique, the home of Trendy Twine then you should check it out. I have to admit, I am in love with twine! It's popping up on all my projects lately. I think if I won the lottery, one of my first purchases would be EVERY color they have! And, if you haven't checked out the amazing products that Miss Emma has over at My Creative Time, hustle on over there. Don't blame me if you become addicted! I love her products (and I'm not paid to say that!)!!! I added the apple from the Cricut Preserves cartridge. I had cut a bunch of these for another project and figured it was a good image for a card for a teacher! Voila...done!
Then, on to the "gift"...
I hope you enjoyed these projects. The main message here is that you don't have to spend a ton of money to show appreciation to someone. I took these to the school this evening and put them in the teacher's mailbox. I hope she realized that people do appreciate her and what she does for the kids that she teaches.
Go forth and craft!
