Michael's Teacher Gift

Nothing like waiting until the last minute....tomorrow is the last day of school for my 3rd grader, Michael. As soon as I got home tonight, off I went to my little craft room to attempt some last minute creativity. The school colors are red and white, but I took the liberty of changing them to very vanilla and real red to match the SU designer paper. The stamp is from Close to My Heart and the remainder of the supplies are Stampin' Up. I used my new set of nestabilities that I received in the mail last week. This is a large paper clip I purchased at Hobby Lobby over a year ago:I purchased this little notebook in the $1 section of Michaels a couple of weeks ago:I'm not one to alter things as I struggle with this part of stamping, but these were easy. The last part of the gift is four note cards for Charla:I sure hope she enjoys these. Thank you for looking and leaving your comments. Have a great day!

This is gorgeous! My daughter's teacher has a no gift policy--she sent a note home about it day one-- but will allow parents to purchase items needed for the classroom. Her teacher last year didn't have that policy and I loved making stuff for her and she tells me she misses it! LOL
