Hump Day Craft Post - end of the school year gifts

I enjoy giving gifts.  I like making things.  Oldest likes to give gifts too.

My oldest daughter is in the sixth grade and still wants to give her teacher an end-of-the year present. 

So we made these thank yous.  I'm not entirely thrilled with the stitching, but I think that makes them even cuter.

The apple is a cut from the Doodlecharms cricut cartridge.  It is an older cart, but still one of my favorites.  The face stamp is from peachykeen stamps and if you haven't been to Kathy's site, you are missing out!

Oldest also wants to make something for all four of her is hard for a lunchlady to say no to that.  :-)

Are you working on anything for the end of the school year? Leave me a link so I can come over and see it.

my mom was a teacher and she always hated getting the same things over and over. Instead of inflicting that on other teachers, she started getting them iced tea jugs with a set of plastic cups.

I've done similar, but I always debate putting in a mixed alcoholic drink recipe, haha!

Very cute cards! My kids used to give lots of gifts to the teachers too. I did lots of handmade things too. Not only do I love making them, but they are much more economical.
My kids gave gifts to their teachers until they got to high school. Teachers are just like everyone else, they love gifts too and deserve to be recognized.
