Teacher's Gifts - Card Set

It's almost the end of the schooling year of my DDs. I need to make something for each teacher and will give it to each of them on the day of the farewell celebration. Selin, my youngest Dd, goes to Nursery class. She is in Nursery 1. For her teachers, there are 4 in her class and 5 in another class but they help her a lot, I made sets of cards. Where did I get the idea? Here they are, ideas from brilliant crafting persons.

I came to Jennifer McGuire's blog last April and found the card set she made. Simple but, of course, adorable. So I decided to make cards similar to hers. I embossed each card. Then I used Hero Arts stamps for the girls and the sentiments, and Anya images (given by some friends). Here how they look.

Each set has 6 cards.

And for the wrapping? I do have clear boxes a lot, but they are bigger than the size of the envelopes. It won't look good. So I decided to make purses and boxes. For the purses, I was really inspired by the purses made by the customer of Becky Roberts here. It's Becky who has the pattern and sell it on her blog. Gorgeous purses. I wish I could buy one of her pattern but I can't just click "add to cart", since I don't have paypal or credit card...LOL. So I create the size of the purse and everything that goes with it. For the box, it's quite easy as I adore making boxes. I just cut the pp and the acetate for the cover. Here how they look, the purses and the boxes.

These purses are for four teachers in Selin's class. Each purse contains 6 cards and 6 envelopes. I put each of their names on the tag. The tag was embossed with the word "Danke" which reminds me of my friend in Munich...

These are the closer look of the purses :

Five boxes are for the teachers in Nursery 2, who happen also to care for Selin and will be her teachers next term. Each box contains 6 cards with blossom shape.

I'll make two more sets for teachers of Kezia and Priscilla. For them, I'll stamp some flowers and butterflies.
Making all these really made me relaxing, since the period of tests of my DDs and other compulsory activities are over...LOL... Really love this relaxing moments...

Thanks for looking... Enjoy your day, peeps...
