Teacher Gift Ensemble

I have to keep this short and sweet tonight, as I have found myself in another last minute pickle. This time it's a teacher gift and snacks for my daughter's party at school tomorrow. Ugh! you remember this project? Well, thank goodness I hadn't given it away yet, because it was a great jumping off point to create this little gift ensemble for my daughter's Kindergarten teacher. I decided to rely on an old favorite and made a matching Post It note holder with my Bind-it-All. And I made a coordinating pen using an RSVP pen and a bit of rolled up paper to insert inside. I know everyone has done this, but this was my first time! I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out and thrilled that I had just enough leftover paper to make everything matchy match, including the gift bag and tag:

Whew! Now I have to scrounge around the kitchen and see what I can come up with for a snack. What can you make with saltines, oatmeal and Cheerios? Anybody? Anybody?

Aloha Jennifer~ your teacher's gift turned out sooo cute! Love your color combo, so bright and cheery. I've done the pen thing before but this year is the first time I actually got it to work! Usually my paper just gets all scrunched up in there, lol!!

Boy you get me into lots of trouble! In the last 6 months or so since I've been addicted to your blog, I have bought the Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies, and many stamp sets (Oh, and paper, buttons and ribbon) from PTI! You are so inspiring!
