Teacher Appreciation {Coffee Cozy}

Hello friends!  I am back again today to share another gift for Teacher Appreciation.  This is a gift card wrapped in a coffee cozy! I thought it would be a nice treat to give Emma's teacher a gift card to Panera Bread along with a coffee cozy she could use afterwards.
I decided to try and make a little chalk board themed seems to be the "in" thing right now and how fitting for a teacher gift, am I right?  I added a little vellum tag overlay embossed with an adorable apple from PTI's Teach & Inspire stamp set.  The little ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and looks like a ruler.  You sense I am going with a theme right?  I just couldn't help myself!  Anyhoo, I wanted to add a little red apple to the chalkboard tag, but all of my apple dies were too large and I didn't have anything tiny.  Oh well, it turned out pretty nice anyway.
I messed up on the ribbon when I punched a hole through the cardstock, but it was getting late last night and I figured it wasn't that big of a deal.  Don't look to closely ha ha!
This is the coffee cozy....Emma was so thrilled with it.  I was going to sew a button on the top of the apple but decided against it since I was afraid I would ruin it if I messed up.
This little tag on the side just totally makes it!  I love the pop of color.  I hope that Papertrey Ink comes out with some new additions to the Coffee Cozy Die line *hint, hint, wink, wink!*  A girl can dream, right?
As a final ending to Teacher Appreciation Week I made a little card for Emma to write a personal note to her teacher.  As always, she did not disappoint!  She wrote the cutest little note inside and had me in stitches.  I think her teacher will really enjoy reading the card, I know that I did.
This wraps it up for me today.  Thank you for stopping by and visiting!
