SIU Teacher Gifts

Hey! A couple days ago I posted this month's Step It Up challenge on the A Muse Addicts site. The challenge is to make gifts for our kids' teachers or for that special teacher friend in our life. Very useful challenge, only thing is, I didn't have any samples ready!! Eeekkk!! I promised to work on them this week and post them ASAP and here they are:

I used a variety of A Muse Kitchen Cardstocks to make the gift colorful. The picture frame isn't complete, I need to pick up the Polka Dot Numbers clear set from A Muse so I can stamp the year on the bottom of it. The can has no goodies in it yet, but as soon as I figure out what I want to put in there, I'll fill it up and complete it. I used the Martha Stewart Scallop border punch on most items to keep them looking like a set, along with the little Elzybells emblems and gingham ribbon.

Here's a close up of the clipboard, it says, "you've got CLASS." (I'm so punny, I know!!) :D

I got the idea for this binder clip note/picture holder from the A Muse shop, we have one sitting on the counter with a business card in it, so cute!! They make adorable gifts and they're super easy to make!! (BONUS!!)

Here are a couple close ups of the Elzybells emblems. Just colored in with Copics, matted and added an A Muse clear sticker over the top to finish it off. They're popped up on dimensionals (except the one on the clipboard).

If I finish up the other teacher gifts to complete the set, I'll be sure to post them for you.
