Words of Wisdom EOY Gifts

This year's end-of-year teacher gifts consisted of a framed inspirational sentiment, and I think it fits today's 365 Card challenge, Words of Wisdom, pretty well! This design could easily be used as a card front instead of a bit of home decor. (My frames all measure 4"x6".) Most of the teachers received the Magnifique version, shown here first. (Of course they were framed; this photo shows the design, etc., w/o the glare from the glass in the frame. The flowers were adhered on the outside of the glass after assembling the pieces.) For the band and chorus teachers (not pictured), I used the musical paper from the Mistletoe paper collection.




Each teacher also received a version of this simple thank you card. The girls wrote their own messages of appreciation on the inside. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the decorated lunch sacks that we put the presents and cards in.


Because this verse means so much to me (and I know that I need to be reminded sometimes!), I made a framed piece for my bathroom, where I will see it each and every day. The Miracle paper pack matches my bathroom well.


I also made one for a dear family friend's 13th birthday. Her bedroom is decorated in a cowgirl theme, so I used the (retired) Giddy Up papers and a wooden frame. The knotted jute is on the outside of the glass but tucked under the frame's edges. (I did use a few glue dots to hold it place.)



Now I've got to make one for each of our daughters' bedrooms. Orders, anyone?


Supplies from Close To My Heart: Magnifique paper pack; Sky, Pacifica, & Chocolate inks; Chocolate marker; Sensational Seals stamp set; Miracle paper pack; Crystal Blue & Twilight inks; Giddy Up paper pack; Twilight & Chocolate inks; Just Blooms White Daisy paper flowers; Blue Sparkles; 2" scallop circle punch; 1-1/4" circle punch


Other: Philippians 4:13 stamp (Verve); jute (unknown); frames (Dollar General & WalMart)
