Teacher Gifts for Xmas 2010

If these look familiar it's because I made the same little desk caddies for my kids' teachers last year too.  See HERE.  These are made from Lauren Meader's template over at PTI.  See HERE.  And speaking of PTI, I can't wait until their November release!  I think I say that every month.  I can't believe all the cute sets and dies they come out with.  I think I've really gotten my monies worth with this template.

This one is for my son's kindergarten teacher who was also my daughter's kindergarten teacher so we couldn't be happier.  She is a great teacher and hopefully she will be there for our youngest one too.  Stamp is Teacher Anya from TGF and paper is from October Afternoon.  I used PTI's spiral note paper die and their School Time stamp set for the handwriting lines and the bus.  I lightly penciled in the teacher's name and my son traced over it just to make sure her whole name would fit.  You know how kids tend to squeeze the last letters in cause they run out of space.  I decided to blur out the teachers' names in the photos.

This one is for my daughter's GT teacher who is so supportive and loving.  My daughter really enjoys her class.  Paper is from Imaginisce. 

The last one is for my daughter's main teacher.  She is strict but my daughter learns a lot from her about responsibility.  I love this school paper from Crate Paper and really had to force myself to use it.  I have to tell myself to actually use the paper I buy, not just stare at it. 

I am still working on the gifts to place inside these little caddies.  So much to do before Xmas!

Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!

So cute! You're sure making great use of the template. I never thought about that before, but teachers are the perfect recipients, you get a new one every year! Yes, I'm drooling over this month's PTI releases too. Argh, is it already mid-November?! I need to get started on my Xmas lists, and Xmas photo.
