Butter 'Em Up at Back to School

Wow..summer is over and school is in session. I thought it would be in good brown nose fashion to make something for the kids teachers. Really I just love any excuse to make something from my stash. The little projects I made were simple but the teachers loved them and they doubled as incentives for the kids in class.

I covered a small box from Michael's dollar section with a patterned paper, then inked the edges. I then stamped the lid with the stamp set Teacher's Apple from PaperTrey Ink. I filled the box with Smarties and on the tag (forgot to get a phot of that) wrote "Just making sure your class has some smarties". Too cute! My son's teacher said she expects something like this every day, only 179 more to go!
Paper: Close to my Heart
Ink: PAPERTREY Ink & Ranger
Ribbon: misc.

I am going to buckle down and start creating more often and get posting as much as I can. The kids schedules are super full and we are constantly on the move. I have arranged my volunteer schedule at school so that I am technically only obligated to one day, although I have a hard time staying away, there is so much to be done. We have great volunteers though, very dedicated and reliable.

Halloween is right around the corner and I have lots of plans for crafts....I love halloween colors! Keep checking in for inspiration.
