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.)
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.
