I found these personalized notpads on sale a couple of months ago and thought they would be great for teacher birthday gifts. As the year started and I missed a few birthdays I decided to make them Christmas gifts instead :)
I used a picture I took from a hot air balloon that had all the kids making out the school letters. Turned out AWESOME! Some other ideas - the school crest, actual photo of the school or a picture of your child and their teacher. I made the photo transparent about 50 percent so you can write on the pad.
Sorry for the blurred out names.
Cello bags, punch, ribbon, tags, double sided tape and notepads
Used my favorite punch 1 7/16 scalloped lever punch by recollections (purchased at Michael's)
Added the tag and they were done!
The boys also wanted to give something to ALL the teachers...P.E., Art, Music, Receptionist, Nurse, Principal, Asst. Principal, Librarian, and to their main teachers as well. YIKES!!!! I couldn't afford notepads for that many so we made red velvet cakes in mason jars just to show thought of them. (See! We are guilty of the sugary gifts too) I LOVE HOW THEY TURNED OUT!!!
Red velvet cake baked right in the mason jars!
