Teacher Gifts 2015.....

Hello & Happy Tuesday to ya!!!
Today I thought I would share the
things I made for the Last Day of School
Gifts for Hunter's Teachers! Now I had a
little trouble coming up with something for
his home room teacher.... She's a sweet lady but
was very hard to figure out what she might like...
Hunter had asked her for me, to at least get an idea....
But since she was basically saying anything...
I didn't feel good about making her just anything!
Sooo, Her gift was
an Edible Arrangement Fruit Bouquet....
I got her the Delicious Daisy Dipped Pineapple

Along with this card I made before...

I thought it fit perfectly with her gift!
You can find the Info on this card HERE!
She did like the gift a lot! :)

Sooo, his other teacher was a lot more easier
to figure out... She LOOOOOOVVVVES COFFEE!!!!
Now you've got to realize... I LIVE in UTAH!!!
Before I moved, Our little town had at least 
95% of Mormons living there...
My best friends are Mormons... but they
thrilled that I can finally make a gift for someone
who does drink coffee!!!!  :)

Here's what I made for her! :)

I purchased a really nice Vacuum Insulated Travel
Coffee Mug and Personalized it for her! I used white
& Green Vinyl, and altered it so I could place
her name on it. I'm not someone who does a ton of
vinyl work... So, it took me 3 tries before I was finally
happy with the results.... I really think we are, our
own worst critics!!! :)

So then I had to make a tag using the Jaded Blossom
Tag set & some Black Trendy Twine,
 to let her know she has to wash this by
hand.... Vinyl is BAD for your dishwasher & not
everyone knows this.... :)

My son also told me she owns a Keurig Machine!
So, I had to add some yummy K-Cups
for her own personal use!
I added some Vanilla, Vanilla Supreme,
Vanilla Hazelnut... There are 6 on the outside
and I placed 4 inside the cup as
an extra surprise! ;)

Of course.... I HAD to make her a card to match! :)
Card Stock - Stampin' Up, Georgia Pacific, Bo Bunny
Digital Designer Paper - Just so Scrappy (Bee Mine)
Coffee Cup Gift Card - Sil. Store (#29511)
I enlarged it to fit in an A2 size envelope
Sentiment - Jaded Blossom (Teacher Appreciation)
Stitched Tag Die - Jaded Blossom (Mini Tags 2)
Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine
Red Gem - Recollections (Craft it Valentine)
Assorted Flowers - My Stash
2 Vintage Buttons - My Stash (I cut the loops off
and glued the buttons on with a little hot glue)
Mini White & Black Rose trim Ribbon - Joann's

On the inside I added a $25 Gift Card to Starbucks
My son said she cried when she received this gift...
I was happy she LOVED it! :)

Then we made something for his class!
He only has like 22 or 23 kids in his class....
So we used the Super Hero's from the SVG Cutting
Files Blog hop a couple of weeks ago to
make these little Lollipop gifts! I did the Super Hero's
with Print N Cut.... The Stitched Lollipop Holder Die 
is from My Creative Time, I used Pink, Yellow, Grey,
& Red Baker's Twine to tie them all together....
The Tags were made using my Silhouette
by finding a tag and adjusting to the size I wanted
then adding the Sentiment using the Print N Cut again....
My son's friends loved these little Tootsie Roll Pops! :)

I'm Entering The Following Challenges:

I appreciate you making it all the way
to the bottom of my post!
Lots of details to write in....
So glad I don't have to do this again
for another year! Hahaha
