Quick and Easy Teacher Gift!

Hi all! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Friday was the kiddos last day of school which meant--- a way to thank the men and women who spent a good chunk of their year trying to make my kids smarter! ;-)

I found some fun papers at Hobby Lobby, a twill ribbon that looked like a ruler and also found some Jolee's stickers that would also be fun to add to my project. Then..... I headed over to the jar/container aisle at HL and found a fun jar. From there - it was just cutting and gluing to come up with this combo!

Could this be any easier?? I took some of the scraps to make a card and then added a punched edge, the ribbon and another one of the Jolee stickers. The dark grey paper doesn't show very well, but it looks like chalk board in real life.

Here's a closeup of the jar. It's full of mini candy bars - which Ellie's teacher said was her fave!

And, this was the top!

So, a fun way to tell a Kindergarten teacher that they are just the best! I felt bad. Tonight as we were putting Ellie to bed, she got HUGE tears in her eyes and I looked at her and said - "What's wrong sweetie??" She said, I'm going to miss Mrs. Studer!! Wow. Most kids are excited about summer vacation. My girl is having some separation issues! Poor thing!

I guess this weekend was a continuation of the easy peasy projects! I stopped into Jo Ann Fabrics and found a baby quilt kit for a whopping $17.00!! This one was darling it has some really fuzzy soft brown fabric, pink satin and then pink, green and hot pink patterns. I got home, cut it up, sewed it back together and added a backing on in...... 3 hours! It turned out so cute! The photo isn't the best. The dark fabric almost looks black but honestly -- it's like a chocolate brown. I am going to get some fun embroidery thread and hand tie it this week. It's going to be donated to an auction that my mom is helping to put on as a fundraiser to send foster kiddos to camp.
Ok.. I'm a bit too chatty today! Hope life is well in your corner of the world and I will see you back here soon!
