Teacher's Lunch

Teacher Appreciation day is May 3rd and the end of the school year is coming fast too!

Are you looking for ideas for teacher gifts?   If so, then you will want to check out the Your Next Stamp blog this week.  The design team is sharing ideas for teacher’s gifts through a 4 day series.  Today is the final day, so be sure to look back at days 1 through 3 on the YNS blog for even more inspiration.

I decided to create a gift bag to hold a bunch of supplies I picked up for the teachers.  Think stickers and clips, plus some chocolate…you know, the essentials.

Keeping with the school theme, I dressed up a simple brown lunch bag which is something you may already have on hand.

YNS Ingredients:  Learning is Fun stamp set | Stitched Square Die Set

Trim off the rough edge at the top of the bag and then fold it down at the 3” mark.   Cut a 2.5” strip of patterned paper the width of the bag and adhere it to the folded over flap.  My bag was 6” across, but be sure to measure your bag to determine the length of the patterned paper strip.   Then color up the stamped image and cut it out.  Cut out 2 squares to layer and stamp the sentiment.   Pop up the stamped imaged with foam dots.  

To hold the bag closed, punch 2 holes on either side of the squares and thread ribbon through.

Head on over to the YNS blog to see everyone’s creations and be inspired!
