Teacher Christmas Gifts

Hello there!
Popping in to share the gifts that my boys will be
handing out to their teachers for Christmas this year.
There are five teachers betwen the three of them,
since my younger two have both a teacher
and a teacher's aid at all times.
Each of them will be receiving a set of
 6 handmade notecards and envelopes
that look like this guy.

I used lots of Lawn Fawn on these gifts.
Five stamp sets, if I kept track correctly.
I'd never actually made more than one of a
card before, but aside from being time-consuming
it wasn't too bad. I just did everything
assembly-line style. It took me a LOT of hours
this week to do, but I'm really happy with the result
and I think they will be too.

Here's how I packaged them up:

For the tags, I bought some library cards
and sleeves, and stamped those with their names.

And the card slides out to display
a message from the boys.
Clever, no?
I was quite pleased with myself. ;o)

Before I go, I wanted to mention two things.
First, I will be taking a short break from blogging
over the holidays to spend time with family,
and do a little traveling -- more on that later.

Second, when I return, I have a big surprise!
I was recently asked to become part of
something really fun and exciting, and that
I hope you're going to love.
I know I am!
I'm dying to tell you all about it,
but I can't just yet. Soon -- I promise.

Until then, Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year!
