Teacher Appreciation

Hello friends!  As many of you may already know, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week.  I did a couple of little quick gifts for Emma's teacher earlier this week.  I didn't snap any pictures except one really quick on my iPhone before Emma left for school yesterday morning.  I posted it on instagram.  However, this morning before Emma rushed out the door I managed to snap a few pictures of today's teacher treat.  It is a hand soap from Bath & Body Works that I wrapped up in a kraft bag with a cute little topper.  Hope you like it!

 I am absolutely in LOVE with this little Sketched Stars die from Papertrey Ink.  I used the Gold Shimmer cardstock from Papertrey Ink to die cut the little stars.  They remind me of when your teacher would correct your papers and give you a gold star!  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!  The word "Thanks" is die cut using a die from Paper Smooches.  That is going to become a favorite of mine, I can tell you that right now. 
This topper is very similar to the one I posted here.  I am in love with these toppers, mainly because I can't just make a simple tag anymore!!  I feel that making a variety of different shaped tags and embellishments with all sorts of different textures adds to the presentation.  It really dresses things up without a ton of extra effort.  It is also a great way to use up bits and pieces of your stash!! 

It is not too late to show your hard working teacher a little appreciation for all of their hard work.  There are so many cute, fast and inexpensive ways to show them that you care.  Here are a couple of ideas that I picked for this week:
