Back to School Teacher Gifts

Today I wanted to share with you some little gifts I made for the teachers. I am one of those crazy moms who gives the teachers a gift for back to school. I guess I am sucking up...lol. Well I stumbled upon THIS tutorial the other day, and thought I would give it a try. I like to make the first day of school gifts something useful or practical. Usually something consumable too. So I thought these Post-it note holders were perfect! And I thought it would be fun to use this sentiment stamp from QKR Stampede. It is just perfect for it!This is the front of the post-it note holders. I stamped the Just a Note sentiment from QKR Stampede, and trimmed it. I also rounded the corners. I layered that onto a piece of fabric that I trimmed to fit. I layered the fabric onto a solid colored CS (it is the same color as the inside CS). I used my Cricut to cut the scalloped squares, and layered onto those. Here is a photo of the back of them. I did the same as the front minus the QKR Stampede sentiment. Here is a view of the inside.
As you can see, the post it notes are attached to the back of the holder. I used red sticky tape to attach it so it stays good. You can also see the ribbon. The ribbon is used to close the little holder up. I hope they like theses! I even made the one to match the school uniforms! I happened to have some of the fabric that matches the uniforms. Wanna try it??? HERE is the link to the tutorial that I used from the Whimsie Doodles Blog.
