A Present for the Teacher

So last month it was Valentine's day. As well as the requirement for Hayden to bring a card for every member of his class, there was also the small matter of something for the teacher. She is a lovely lady, who had been really helpful in getting him settled in his new class, so we wanted to make her something special. So this is what we did. A simple little notebook from the $2 shop was transformed into something a little bit more special, with the help of some lovely Ginger Blossom patterned paper, card, and a few embellishments. Add in a matching pen, and boxy thing to keep it in, present complete. We were really pleased with how it turned out, and the teacher loved it. And all for under $5.

Materials used for this project:
  • Ginger Blossom patterned paper (summer mini)
  • River rock, groovy guava, very vanilla and ruby red cardstock
  • River rock ink
  • ABC Alphabet lower stamps
  • Spring Flowers Bouquet punch (retiring)
  • Five Petal Flower punch
  • Scalloped border punch (summer mini)
  • Ruby Red Brads (earth elements)
  • River Rock double stitched grosgrain ribbon
  • 'Love Notes' gift card (vanilla)
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
  • notebook, pen
