Teacher's Gift

My youngest's 5th grade award assembly was yesterday, and I am so proud of her! My daughter won the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence, an honor roll award (straight A's all year), a singing club award, and a perfect attendance award. She had a GREAT year this year! Go Jessica!


She had her 5th grade field day before the award's assembly, so she was a little disheveled at the assembly! Look at that smile! Well done sweetheart! I'm beaming with pride!


This is the teacher's gift that we put together for her 5th grade teacher. The 2nd card is for her social studies' teacher. The tin and the "don't forget" pink/green/yellow pad came from Target. We tied some pretty ribbon around the pad, and added a large altered paper clip. There's some candy too . . . YUM! We also included a Bind It All book.


Here are the gifts inside the tin. I used my big Cropadile, Mr. Big Bite, to punch through the tin and add the eyelet that is holding on the flower/ribbon stack. Jessica designed the cards to coordinate with the pad of paper. Aren't the cards FABULOUS? She used her set of "girly" ki Memories acrylic stamps on the cards.


These are the magnets that we made. We used one of my new Stampin' Up sets. CUTE! The magnets are so fun, because Jessica put them on the outside of the tin!


This is a binder clip that I altered along with the two cards. How fun! I hope her teacher likes it all.

Today is the last day of school, and they only go for one hour, and then summer vacation has officially begun! This school year went by FAST! Both of my girls will be at the junior high next year . . . I can't believe it! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!
