First Day Teacher Gift

Hi, I’m Cathy and I am a 3D paper craftaholic.  Okay, I’ve admitted it.  So far you’ve seen quite a few cards from me but I warn you, there will be 3 dimensional items in the future.  LOL  Even though I don’t have children in school anymore, I have friends who are teachers.  🙂  Here is a First Day Teacher Gift that I made…..

I used the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits to make the box itself.  It can hold quite a few gifts, candy or small cookies or even jewelry if you are so inclined.  I probably wouldn’t put jewelry in this for a teacher’s first day gift, but I might for a birthday or Christmas.  😉


I also used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit collection to cut the “For You” sentiment.  The two tags actually come with the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits.   The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits come with a star, a heart, a strip of stars and hearts and several other useful items.   After cutting two of the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit die pieces I adhered a 1″ strip of DSP from the Sweet Li’L Things collection at the bottom just to give it a little dimension.  After that I put the box together by gluing the bottoms together.  After closing the box and adhering the “For You” I tied the two tags with the sentiments “You Rock” and “the little things” with Linen Thread.


With the Holidays coming up this is a great tool to have in your tool box, so is the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  You’ll be able to give gifts in cute packaging and be remembered by the recipient and those around who see your gift, if that is important to you.  I just like to see the recipients face when they receive the gift packaged by me specifically for them.  If you would like to be able to package gifts in adorable packaging jump on over to my website and pick up one of these thinlit collections, or both!  All the items needed for today’s project are listed below.  Thanks for stopping by! Now go and and create something cute!
