2010 Teacher/Neighbor Gifts

My daughter's class is doing the sweetest thing for their teacher this year! As a former teacher, I would LOVE to receive this.
 




 
The room moms decided on a theme of "The Giving Tree" based on the book by Shel Silversteen. We are giving her a copy of the book with the students autographs inside and a tree full of gift cards to her favorite places.
{We had her put together a list of those places and then had the kids each bring in a gift card of their choice.}
My part in this is finding a cute way to hang the gift cards. I ended up making little burlap "purses". They are just the right size for the cards and look so cute on that tree!
 


I used this tutorial to get the wording on the burlap.
Sewed two quick seams (YEAH! The sewing machine is back!)
And then had a blast embellishing them.
I recruited my girls for the handle-beading and we finished all 20 bags in a few hours.

I liked them so much I decided to make some a bit bigger and use them for my neighbor gifts this year.


I'm thinking I'll fill them with some homemade caramels. YUM!

Happy Crafting...
