Our Teacher Appreciation Gift

Oval All Thank You CardThis afternoon I wanted to make a little something for my son’s preschool teacher as a thank you gift.  Tomorrow night is preschool graduation at Little Lambs Preschool in Stewartstown, PA and I want him to give it to her then. 

Here are pictures.  I made her eight of these cards using some retired designer paper, So Saffron ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration ribbon bundle and the Oval All stamp set Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflyand corresponding Oval Scallop Punch which are in the current mini catalog.  I cut the butterfly on the Big Shot with the Beautiful Butterfly Stampin’ Up! exclusive die.

The cards are tucked away into this coordinating box I made.  On the box is a Top Note cut from the Big Shot as well as the largest of the butterflies on the Beautiful Butterfly die and some ribbon.  The “for you” stamp is from the Fresh Cuts stamp set.

If you like this box you may be interested in attending my Boxes and Bags Class on August 7 in New Freedom, PA.  We will make a variety of fun projects!  I already have several signed up, and even paid up,  for this class.  It’s going to be a lot of fun, I hope you will join us!

Back to the teacher gift, I also had my son make a card for his teacher and also one for each of the teacher’s aids.  I thought I’d go ahead and show you that too.  Prehistoric Pals stamp setMicah will be excited to see his artwork on here!  Micah used the Prehistoric Pals stamp set along with Close to Cocoa, Green Galore, Glorious Green and Brilliant Blue ink to stamp his cards.  Micah loves to stamp!

I occasionally allow the boys to stamp with my good Stampin’ Up! sets but most often I give them Stampin’ Up! tattoo kits to stamp with.  The kits come with stamps and ink and markers that are washable and safe for the skin, however, we usually use them on paper. 

Thank you for visiting my website!  I hope you take some time to stamp before the week comes to an end!


  1. This is a great gift for a preschool teacher – it’s nice to have cards on hand. Funny thing is that my son just graduated last night from Little Lambs too (but located in northern MN). I am sure your son’s preschool teacher will appreciate the set of cards. Is there a special template for this box? I would love to get the template for it. Thanks much!
