At my daughter's school, the PTO plans a week of appreciation for the teachers and staff. L doesn't have school Mondays so we gave out the decorative notepads on Tuesday. $5 for 8 gifts is not bad but I had to come up with two more days of gifts without spending any additional money.
How stinkin cute are these?! Seriously, I literally patted myself on the shoulder for a job well done. Yeah Me! I wish I could take credit for the concept, but I am not a complete genius. Just genius enough to know a good idea when I see it, and then to steal it. Mwahaha! (I'm fine with you calling me evil genius, as long as the word genius is associated with me) Hmm, how many times have I typed the word "genius" so far? Genius! Genius! Genius! So if you want to see what true genius looks like, please check out Sunghee's blog Creativity in Progress. AMAZING! Did I mention she's a creative GENIUS?
These are most of the supplies, tea bags which I had left over in the cupboard. (I have switched to loose leaf). Plastic Easter eggs, from Easter. Lollipop treat bags left over from last time I made cake pops. Paper, buttons , fiber and Stickles from my scrapbook stash. What you don't see is a loaded weapon. You got it, my handy dandy 9 gauge glue gun. Watch out bloggers, cuz I'm armed and dangerous.
This is the teapot tag, I attached. It was made with my Cricut, using the A Child's Year cartridge. I used the teaparty tag setting at 2". This tag says "for a TEA-rific Speech Tx". Another one said "for a wonderful TEAcher." Get it? Tea bags in tea cups for the TEAcher? I know, I'm a genius! (hee hee)
Thanks for stopping by Fakin It. Come back tomorrow for one last teacher appreciation gift!
