I have been busy this week. School starts on Monday and things in my house have been a little crazy (but when aren't they, with three little boys running around?). I have finally completed the back to school gifts for the teachers and I'm so excited to share.
I used the Let's Do Lunch template from My Timeless Templates from PTI. This year, I used a strip of ribbon, which I folded near the end for extra strength, and secured with a bronze large brad. I also added a bow and school themed button to the front. These were both secured with hot glue after the box was put together.
I actually punched two of the file tab punches in red, one for the bottom, and one for the lid. Then I used velcro dots to keep the top closed. I think this method works the best.
Inside each box are 4- 4x4 note cards, a pillow box with beaded lanyard inside, and a matchbox with 4 Hershey's nuggets inside.
I used the Holiday Treats set by PTI to stamp the labels of the nuggets. I hand wrote "Welcome Back" with an Old Olive SU! marker.
One set of notes was a simple Thank You from Simply Stationary - I added a dry embossed line around the edge, 1/2 in from all sides.
For the other teacher I included monogrammed thank you notes from Simply Stationary. This time I used my black pen to add a line around the edge (1/2in from all sides).
Finally, I added beaded lanyards. I thought I was done last night, but I had no idea for packaging the lanyards to look cute. This morning I thought about a small pillow box. I dug through my patterns and found one the perfect size. I added a tag and some ribbon to the front.
