Teacher Appreciation

My twins started preschool this fall.  And thus we entered the {new to us} world of teacher appreciation.  Since I have been in a big winter crafting mood lately, I decided rather than giving the "typical" food or gift card holiday present to B&K's teachers, I would do something a bit more personal.

I'm a huge fan of this blog.  Like, addicted to it HUGE fan.  And a while back they had this great tutorial for a box of teacher goodies.    LOVED it!  So I set out to create something similar.  I entered the world of my blog partner, Jenn, and hung out in the scrapbook aisles at my local craft stores.  I found the boxes to be cheapest at JoAnn's.  I purchased the scrapbook paper (my minds eye), alphabet thickers and butterfly embellishments (martha stewart) at Michaels.  The goodies inside I picked up mostly at WalMart (which is a total shocker from me since I'm a self proclaimed Target girl.  But I digress).

I'm super pleased with how the gifts turned out.  And we've already received thank you cards from each teacher with major kudos for doing something so "different".  It was super simple and all three boxes were completed in under an hour.  Easy-peasy!
