Teacher Gift Package!

Happy Tuesday Morning Everyone! I'm soooo super excited about this post! I made a Teacher gift for my 1st graders wonderful teacher..She also happens to be my neighbor! Yup I said that right, we live in a real small town sooo you will see your teacher at the Dr. office or store or just walking down the street! :) LOL
Anyway I made everything that I'm about to show you last night. Here we go and please feel free to leave a comment! Thanks and have a Wonderful day! :)

Ok here are the bags that I made... The Cards inside where actually made in the last few weeks...In fact I've posted some of them for you to see already. :) But the toppers are what I made last night... I Used Stampin' Up Cardstock cut at 6 x 6 1/4 folded in half,  then I used DCWV Spring Stack (I love this pack) :) Cut at 6 x 2 3/4 for the layer and used my corner punch from WeRMemory, I tied on some Stampin' Up 1/4" ribbon to match the paper... Added stamped images from Stampin' Up... And then add some flowers & Butterflies from assorted punches that I have... I thought the toppers came out sooo cute! As you can tell, I'm pretty proud of this set! :)

Now onto this wonderful gift...I made a Post it Note holder and matching topper...
The Post it Note holder I made with DCWV Spring Stack, the pen is from Walmart, I used Stamps from Stampin' Up and the scallop Punches are from SU as well... The butterfly is actually embossed (sorry poor Photo) But it is a Sizzix Diecut exclusive to SU. The Ribbon is also SU... Now if you want to know how to make these cute Post it Notes here is the link to the video ... This lovely lady is not my Stampin' Up Demonstrator but she is soooo super talented!

Ok..This idea I totally got from "My Pink Stamper"...After seeing her cute gift bag made with the new Toy Story Cartridge..I thought "DUH" you can make anybag you want! Sooo I did! :) I cut the Apple at 5" on Real Dial size and used my Design studio to get all the layers to match up... NOTE: Using the real dial size will not layer correctly "only using the paper saver button will layer everything according to size"! And that is why I used my DS to layer everything correctly in the real dial size....:) The Apple cuts are from the Just Because Cartridge... I did both sides of the bag with the apple... I thought it worked out well with this glittery bag... By the way the bag is not pink..... it actually is a glittery white bag but the photo and the red color off the apple gave it that pink shine...:)


Ok..now on to my favorite part of the whole gift package...the CARD! I wanted to keep the theme of the apple that was on the bag soooo I came up with this! How totally cute is this! OMGosh... I love how this turned out! :) ok, ok... How I made it.... SU Cardstock, DCWV The Green Stack (Great paper), EK Success Punch, the Apple was cut at 2 3/4" with the DoodleCharm Cartridge, And the Cute worm is from Create a Critter. It was cut out at 2 1/2" and I used all the layers for him and both the apple and worm have inking around the edges for the shadow/depth look... and of course I had to use googlie eyes on Mr. Wormy. The "Teacher" is computer generated and I used SU punches for the layers behind the saying...
Thanks soooo much for taking a look! I can't wait to see what my sons teacher thinks of this gift! :)
