Handmade Teachers Gift

I have been feeling a little crafty lately and with thirteen days left of school I think that is plenty of time to use this for inspiration on a handmade teachers gift~ What teacher wouldn't like a little box decorated like this as a keepsake from their student. This was designed by Melissa Phillips and I think it is just the ticket to my child's teachers heart! For a list of all the supplies and links to where to get them just visit Emma's Paperie~Don't forget you could always bake some treats to put in the box and a little thank you note from the student~ Wouldn't that be sweet?

  1. wow! this is great! and so inspirational...

    i suppose I should get cracking on making something with the kids for their teachers!

    ciao bella
    creative carmelina has been inspired!

  2. So cool...lovely!
    Fabulous creations as always!

  3. What a fabulous gift and I agree about the note from your child too. Memories forever!

  4. I also adore the paper ruler attached, I can't find any that are not plastic coated. I got a yellow one in an old suitcase full of sewing embellishment but locating more is terribly hard. I wonder if this company has these also?

  5. I would have loved to have received such a beautiful gift when I was teaching! This is so lovely. What a kind parent you are!

    Best wishes,


Thank you for taking the time to visit and comment~
