So - without making you wait any longer, here are those teacher appreciation gifts that I promised to show you.
The base notebook is made from Soft Sky card stock. The DP does not list on it where it is from, sorry.
I used stamps from Rubber Stampede to accent the notebook. I used my little sewing machine from Provo Craft for the stitching and I tied ribbons around the pen after I inserted the DP in the barrel.
Here is an up close of the little school bus that I stamped inside on a few pages. I've had this school bus for years and I don't get a chance to use it often so I was glad for this opportunity. After all, this is her last year - next is college.
The base of this holder is Apricot Appeal.
I stamped the little chalkboard inside these. It is also from Rubber Stampede.
They are very easy to make. I had found them over at Carolina's Creative Pad. She did not give the dimensions of the notepad - so when I first started to make them I used some cheap paper to try first. Do you know how many times I've tried to make something and I ended up wasting good paper? So now I use cheap paper or white paper to first try. I had to adjust the dimensions for this because the notepad is 5" x 8"
I'm off ~ I'm taking Dixie for a walk and I see there is a garage sale just up the street. Maybe I'll find something cool! Have a super great day!
