Cheers! To a Great New Year ~ Teacher Gifts

My girls have one more week left of their summer vacation before they both head off to school.  We have had a wonderful vacation filled with summer time fun activities including bbq's, amusement parks, lakeside adventures and tons of pool time.  I wish we had a little more time together because unlike years before I kind of wish this summer would last a little longer...

On Friday we have a meet 'n greet at school and both the girls are anxious to see their new classrooms, meet their teachers and find out who their classmates will be.  We like to give a small gift to our teachers and this year I totally found my inspiration on Pinterest.  I loved this idea of taking a travel mug, filling it with a yummy bevie and personalizing it too.   We found these clear, cool beverage mugs at Bed, Bath and Beyond and filled them with sachets of Starbucks Via Carmel Iced Coffee (Yum)!

I chose paper from Authentique's Foundations Bi-Fold Solid Paper collections and their beautiful pink & yellow "Delight" Paper.  To make the scallops I used Spellbinder's Grand 12" Big Scalloped Border Grand die template.  The little monogramed tags are also from Authentique Papers.  The tags are from their Tabloids collection and the letters are from their Classic Type Collection.  I also love the eclectic look of this  colorful fiber from Basic Grey's Romani range.

I have a few more projects to complete this week before the craziness of playing 
'taxi-mom' begins.  I hope your summer remains in full swing :) Enjoy!

If you decide to accomplish this be sure to position the
frames in places that they defintely won't be knocked over and broken payday loans no credit check will some enterprising individual at least stick them up about the web.
