Handmade cards & gifts

Hello all!

I have been loving making handmade cards, as you can tell from my previous posts as of late.  They add a nice touch to small gifts.  Today, I’ll be sharing 3 cards that I made along with small gifts.  (I will try to list all the supplies I used at the bottom of this post.)

First up, a congrats shaker card.  I recently shot newborn pictures for a sweet couple.  Along with their digital images, I made a cute card congratulating them on their beautiful baby girl.  ahsang gift&card 3

Second, is a thank you card along with a small teacher appreciation gift.  This was for my younger daughter’s preschool teacher, and my 4 year old picked everything out!  (We also included a nice big bar of Lindt chocolate.)

Last, is a thank you card and mini orchid for a last day of school teacher gift.  This was for my 3rd grader’s teacher, and the theme for their class gift was grow.  The class gift was a decorated plant pot with all the students thumb prints & a gift card.  My daughter wanted to give something to her teacher in addition to the class gift, so when I saw these mini orchids at the store, I thought it’d be perfect.
