Staff Appreciation gifts
Hello on this last weekend before school!
This is my 3rd year now as chair of the Staff Appreciation committee at our elementary school. Last year having a newborn and lack of sleep it was enough to get the girls ready for school, let alone anything beyond that.
Today though I was inspired to make welcome back little gifts for each of the staff at our school. Well thankfully it came along quite quickly thanks to my trusty Big Shot and box #2 die!!! Of course my sidekick Kylie was a HUGE help too! She ran all the cardstock thru the Big Shot while I start assembling, then once she was caught up she starting folding the scored lines and putting the small bit of sticky strip needed on the one tab. As you can see I only used my retired 12x12 cardstock. I also used the retired Curly Label stamp set with matching punch. OH, and a non-SU (gasp) stamp that says teacher on it. All in all I think it took us maybe 2 hours start to finish to make 31 of these. Inside are some peanut free chocolate. Tuesday morning I'll put one in each of the teachers mail slots....Hope they feel welcomed back as we sure appreciate them all!
Have a great weekend,
