end of the school year gifts

Hello!  I have one last teacher gift to share and also an idea I came up with for my youngest one's classmates.

Here's a little jar I decorated with one of those plastic domes.  I ordered a whole bunch of these domes from Amazon cause I guess they are kind of seasonal at our local crafty store and they didn't have them in stock.  I used PTI's school themed petite places stamp set and matching dies.  I think this little school house is so cute.  Then I added a personalized stamped aluminum circle.  Inside the jar is a gift card and I'm so glad I saved the yellow Easter grass my kiddies had in their treats.

Here is a close up of the school house.

This is what I put together for my youngest one's classmates.  I wanted to use a sentiment with a-maze-ing.  First I thought I could buy those little toy mazes but after looking around online for a while, I found this neat site that generates mazes of all sizes.  Check it out HERE.  Then my idea came together pretty quickly.  I printed out 4 different mazes and made enough copies for the whole class.  I cut them down to size and stapled each set of 4 mazes onto cardstock that I had printed the sentiment out on. 

Then while cleaning out more of my crafty stuff, I found all these mini pens I'd been hoarding!  Suffice it to say, I had enough to give one to each kid.  Hehe.  I think this was a pretty economical treat for the class.  Hopefully the kids will have fun figuring out these mazes.

Oh, and I totally thought I had lost 2 stamps from the school house stamp set today.  Mostly because I had left my stamps out instead of cleaning and putting them away.  I was sidetracked with sewing and then my crafty table looked like a mess.  Finally cleaned it up today and I couldn't find 2 of the stamps but found them tonight stuck onto one of my dies that I had already put away.  Thank goodness!  I was getting a bit sad.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
