More Teacher Gift Ideas!

Hello! Welcome to Taylored Expressions May 2016 Release! All products that we have been peeking this week are now available in the TE store, HERE! Before you head off to shop, I have two final projects to show you.

Tomorrow Teacher Appreciation Week officially comes to a close, but we only have 3 weeks of school left, so I'm now turning my focus to end of school year teacher gifts. Since Brina is in middle school, she has a plethora of teachers in addition to her special ed teachers and educational aides. I have a plan for the female teachers (which I will show you when I finish them), but male teachers are always harder for me. I've decided to go with gift cards, and I'm just getting started on them.

I used the Tagging Along die to create a gift tote for Brina's geography teacher. I only managed to finish the one tote, but I did make tags for other teachers. I will either make them into a card or a tote.

It seemed appropriate to use Best in the World and the Whole Wide World die for a geography teacher. I also used map patterned paper on the sides and back of the tote. I added some Lindt truffles inside the tote. Here's a look at the front of the tote.

On the backside, I used the Tag Pocket die and used the pocket to hold my gift card. I used a sentiment from Toe-tally Awesome.

Here are the other tags that I made. These are sized to be used on the Tagging Along tote as well. Unless specified, the tags use sentiments from Toe-tally Awesome. Top row, L to R: I used Little Bits - Cookie. The middle tag uses Graphic Greetings - Thank You. The far right tag uses Little Bits - Nail Polish. Bottom row, L to R: I used Little Bits - Cake & Stand. The middle tag uses Sports Balls and All-Star Accents (perfect for Coach or PE teacher). The final tag uses Little Bits - Donut.
