Final Teacher Gift Wrap-Up

I spent the morning working on this project (I had to make 3 of each). I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out. I went round and round in my head about how best to wrap up the gifts and ended up with your basic bag. I was going to decorate it all up, but what I was seeing in my head was not translating well to paper.  Oh well. I think simple is good, too. And the teachers can re-use the bags if they want. *Ü*

My inspiration for the card came from Nichole Heady’s post here (scroll down just a bit). I used the Teacher’s Apple set (such an awesome set for this purpose), Polka Dot Basics and the little apple from the Limitless Labels set. I used some brads from Hobby Lobby’s Spare Parts line, some hemp from CTMH, some ribbon from my stash and Nestabilities, Label One dies. The colors are Holiday Red, Garden Green, Olive, & Chocolate. I used just a bit of Kraft cardstock, too.

Now I need to get some housework done, so I will close for now. Hope you have a great rest of your day!

Absolutely perfect! And as for the unadorned bag, the kraft bags have all a charm of their own!! I so need this set before next year when we have both kindergarten and preschool teachers to make things for! Can't wait! Fun!!

Jeanne, you are an amazing crafter. I will miss seeing your projects as they are being created. I just wanted to let you know that Annabelle gave her gift to her teacher yesterday and it made her cry. I am sure the girls' teachers will do the same with your gifts. Hope to see you around this summer.
