Teacher Gifts

I made these cute post-it note holders for the staff at my daugther's preschool. Since she was graduating I wanted to give them a little something to say thank you. I only got a picture of one (as it was TERRIBLY late when I made the other two) but here is at least an idea.

There are tons of tutorials out there on how to do this but if you would like to see one I can do step-by-step.

It is a 4x6 acrylic frame modified with Scrapbook paper and post-it notes into the cutest little holder!

I'm sure Ms. Erin will love this one! I hope she does!

Preschool Graduate Gifts

My daugther graduated from Preschool on Saturday and I had in my head for several weeks (ok maybe more than that lol) what I would like to give each child as a celebration gift.

This is the bag. I used my newley purchased Cricut for the first time on those tags. LOVE IT!

Inside each bag was a goodie.

This goodie. A personalized pencil box (a required school supply). I bought all the boxes and then purchased the vinyl letters from an Etsy seller HERE. {highly recommend her!!!!}
The application was super easy and I LOVE the way they turned out.

We used polka dots and hearts for the girls decorations

Most of the boxes were girls. In her class there were 13 girls and 5 boys LOL They were definitely out numbered.
Since polka dots and hearts a too feminie we used stars for the boys!

Inside I put a few things. A 24 pack of crayons (another required school item) a little bag of smarties (which I put, Good luck in Kindergarten, Smartie)

A few silly bandz (are these super popular in your area? My daugther has a billion)
And pencils with these cute toppers. I had hands like these, apples, monkeys (seen below) and dinosaurs which were my fav and I didn't photograph. I got them at Michael's for $1.00 for a 3 pack!

All 18 gifts ready to go!

We handed them out on Saturday and each child LOVED them! I have to say that parents were pretty pleased as well since there were a few required school items inside. It was easy and very affordable!
