Teacher's gifts!!!

Yeaaaaah! School is almost done!!! My kids are so excited for summer holidays to begin... they have started the countdown a while ago, LOL! 

My son is even more excited he gets to miss the last week of school... even though they are the fun school days, he really doesn't care! He leaves tonight with my In laws for Portugal! He is so excited, I'm sure going to miss my little man :'( Well join them there in August!

So because today was his last day of school I wanted him to give his teacher a little gift to thank her for all her help this year... (I think teachers have the hardest job! They deserve so much more!!!) Of course I made the same gift for my daughter's teacher, but she won't receive it until next week! Hopefully Mrs. Stiksma doesn't show Mrs. Esser, LOL!

 Aren't the School Houses adorable!!! The cutest part is that they are totally functional, flip open the roof and they are gift boxes! Fill they up with goodies and they could also be used as book ends :)  What teacher would love them? 

The files I used come from SVG Cuts SCHOOL DAYS SVG KITLOVE their files!!! (I did have to enlarge the files to accommodate the size of my gifts) The cardstock comes from DCWV, the Grade School Stack, all cut with the Cameo.

Used the apple file to make a tag!

And here is what goes inside the gift box! Love personalized gifts... just makes it that more special! Thank you Mrs. Esser! Maia is sure going to miss you!!!

Thank you Mrs. Stiksma! Tomas adores you and will miss you very much!

Etched the bottom of the glass with the kids names :)

A perfect fit inside the School House gift box! Add tissue paper and perhaps a coffee gift card and DONE!

I'll post some pics of how I etched the glass mugs in my next post!

Thanks for stopping by,
