It has been awhile

Here are some gifts that I made for the boys teacher as an end of the year thank you. We had two wonderful teachers this year.

I wanted make something small for the teachers that I know that they could use. For one teacher I made this altered paint can filled it with foam stickers (the teacher calls them smartie stickers and the kids love getting them - so I decided to restock her for next year). The flowers are attached to pencils covered in green paper. I figured she could always use pencils and I needed stems.

I wanted to take a picture of this before I wrapped it along with the card, but of course I forgot and the card was inside the package.

My older son told me that his teacher would give them treats every once in awhile for getting correct answers, so I figured I would make her a jar filled with smarties instead of the bag she uses. For the bear I actually used my silhouette and cut out a paper piecing pattern and pieced it together.

Here is one of the cards I made. (The other card said #1 teacher also and it was placed on a chalkboard - I really liked how that one turned out and wished I had taken a picture.)

I have more stuff to post and will over the next few days.

She's ALIVE!

I'll be expecting one of those gifts for my birthday at the next QK meeting.

Don't forget to make an extra card for me! I'm almost done with my swaps!
