Thank You Teacher Tags

Hi All,

Just a quick post.  Today was the last day of school for my kids (hooray!).  And as always, I gave each teacher a little treat as a thank you for inspiring my kids throughout the year.  I usually bake an item as part of their gift.  And this year was carrot cake!  I packaged them up in tissue paper and put them in gift bags (bought in bulk) I purchased from Michaels.

I just wanted to share the tags that I created for the gifts.  I wanted to make each teacher a card but time simply ran out.

Sorry for the pics.  I took them right before the kids brought them to school today.  Hopefully, you get an idea of what they look like and how I made them.

To create the tags, I used PTI’s Tag Sale #3 die for all three tags shown.  I masked around the stitched border just using post-it notes to keep the image inside the stitching.  Images and sentiments that I used came from Paper Smooches Smarty Pants and Lawn Fawn A Good Apple – perfect sets to make teacher thank you notes.  I used a Stamp-a-ma-Jig (a must have) to make one continuous clean line of images on a few of the tags.  Images were colored with Prismacolor Pencils and I also dabbed glossy accents on one of the apples and the professor’s tie.  Easy peasy.  I created 5 tags in total and I was done (whew!).

Take care!
