A few more little surprises for our favorite teachers

We always have fun coming up with a little something to give our teacher each day during teacher appreciation week. Nothing fancy, just a little something to let them know how much we appreciate ALL that they do.

We love our Teachers!!

I had so much fun making treats for all of the teachers at our schools.

I made little notepads with fabric tags that read, " Take note .. we think you're amazing."
I just covered little notepads that I found at craft warehouse with fabric using one of my favorite glues, Embellishment Glue Stick by Pioneer.Then I typed my saying on vintage paper and stitched it to a piece of fabric backed with vintage music. Then I took peat pots and curled wire around a pencil for the handle - just poked it in on the sides of the pot .. glued on matching vintage fabric, lace and a button. Filled that with shredded music, various mints and a cute poem that I found online and altered to fit.
Peat pot baskets full of Mints

Notepads and mints packaged in brown bag with vintage flashcard, name tag
and fall junque elements by House of 3.

Basket of apples and chocolate hugs - after all Teachers cannot live by apples alone.

My children make the most fabulous "treasures" of all.
