Teacher Appreciation

This is what Isaac gave his teacher on the last day of school, card and "bag-a-lope" full of chocolates.

I love these "Bag-a-lopes" (bag made out of an envelope). They are so easy to make! Click Here for my tutorial. I stamped both sides of the envelope with my Polka Dot background stamp. (My new favorite background stamp.) Used my circle and scallop punches to add detail, threaded some ribbon and that's it! Oh, and filled the inside with lots of yummy chocolate.








The polka dot paper on this card is the Summer Picnic designer series paper. This paper is really fun. I embossed the saying, "Thanks for all you do." I love the apple stamp from the Tart and Tangy stamp set. Perfect for a teacher.

That is really cute! Here we don't have that tradition but it must be pretty nice after almost a full year with the children for them to have that "something" special.
