Teachers' Cards and Gifts

Hi Crafters,
 
I've been busy making lots of cards and gifts for Teachers to sell on my stall at various venues as the end of term approaches and thought I would share them with you today.
Here are a couple of card designs that I made a few of..
 
 I used papers from Lori Whitlock 'School Days' Collection, some tiny brads, Sizzix 'ledger' embossing folder, Stampin' Up hole punch and an apple paper clip.
 
 These were cut on my Cameo and pieced together, they are shaped like a tab folder and are really cute.
 
I covered lots of these hard backed notebooks using papers from Raspberry Road 'Apple Cider' Collection and even personalised some with the names of the Teachers for special orders.
 
  I always have these 'Post It' note holders on my stall as they sell very well but as you can see I made some with a school theme too.


These are lip balm and nail files in a little holder using a Stampin' Up tutorial and the candle holders below are an idea from Sam Pootle that I sized up to fit my perfumed tea-lights.



 
...and finally I made these pencil holders on my Cameo and added a bar of chocolate inside ( who doesn't like chocolate?)

My goodness Lorraine you have been busy and what fabulous gifts these will make.
Now I don't ever remember giveing any teacher a gift, maybe it was something not done in Kirkintilloch when I was a child, but come to think of it, most of the teachers should have been strung up for child abuse, changed days. These will be snapped up from your stall, hugs Kate x

Wow Lorraine, I should have just come to you for my teachers gifts and cards.
What a super job you have done with everything, I love everything. The first card is my favourite love the style of it but I love the pencil ones too.
I have seen the tea-light holders before but not the lip balm and nail file holders, great idea.
You've been very busy, hugs Erika. x
