Teacher Gifts #1

     Today was my little one's last day of preschool for this year.  He had two very wonderful teachers, who had no trouble wrangling my little wild indian and teaching him this year, and for that I felt I needed make them something very special.

     This is what I made.  These gift boxes were inspired by Gretchen Barron.  Check out her's HERE.  Inside the boxes are gift certificates, a Post-It note book, and a pen with designer paper in the window barrel.

**NOTE**  Paper used on these two specific boxes is NOT Stampin' UP! paper (sorry!)


     I made the pansies using watercolor paper.  My colors bled easier and dried lighter (I used Bravo Burgundy on the pansies on the pink box, and Elegant Eggplant on the pansies on the purple box).  These are so much lighter than the original colors.  I love how they turned out.  For my tutorial on how to make the pansies, check out THIS post.  On these pansies I added little lines from the middle out, all the way around.  I saw real pansies the other day and realized I did not add them to the pansies I made in March.

     I also made a card for each of his teachers.  Both cards were exactly the same.   I had him sign his name.  Too cute!

Hi Sandy
Wanted to say thanks for visiting my blog. I returned the favor and visited yours and was glad I did -the graduation favors are so cute! Can't wait to share the ideas with my coworker whose daughter is graduating too.
