teacher & military appreciation

need a quick gift that's sure to get smiles from chocolate lovers? make custom covers for those extra large candy bars. it's a great way to say thank you to all of those people that make a difference in your life throughout the year. sorry for the crummy picture quality!

the cardstock on the teacher candy bar is stamped with versamark ink and embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.

i was lucky enough to have these two featured in the may issue of creating keepsakes. ck is also offering four tags i designed as free downloads on their site. click on any of the tag pictures below to link to the download area. :)

flourishes on the tags are by anna aspnes' hipster plumes mega pack 2

Great ideas! What a treat.

We have one more week until teacher appreciation at my boys' school. I am trying to finalize a massive car wash for all of the teachers. Were calling it "Washin' cause your Wonderful!"

All the 5th grade students and PTA parents are pitching in for fun!

Noel, these are great! I might have to "alter" a bit for "Mother's Day" for the little ones I watch, to give as gifts! ;)
