Today I'm sharing the end of the year gift I made for Jordan's teacher.
Here it is:
So let's give ya the deets to each one.
"Let's Do Lunch". I bought it a while back, but hadn't made anything with it. I did a ribbon treatment to the front & adhered an apple button to it.
Next up are the apple cards.
Here is the book:
Start with a sheet of paper 7 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Score the long side at: 3/4", 3 1/4", 4", 6 1/2"
Score 3/4" on all 4 sides (2 of the sides will have already been done)
Assemble your box.
Book Cover:Paper 6 3/8" x 4 3/8"
Score the long side at: 2 7/8" & 3 5/8" (this creates the spine)
Embellish as you'd like :)
So what do you get a teacher for the end of the year? It depends on the teacher! Typically for the end of the year, I like giving (and getting ;) gift cards. GCs are a good way to go. You should probably avoid things like mugs (you can only have so many mugs!), or knick knacks/decorations.
I know what I appreciate (even more than GCs) is when a parent writes me a letter to let me know that they appreciated my hard work. I keep those and look at them when I start to feel that I went into the wrong profession! they keep me hangin' on just a little longer :) I love when they bring me fresh flowers from their gardens. So you don't have to spend tons on a gift for teacher appreciation for a teacher to feel appreciated.
