Hi everyone. My name is Sarah Taylor from Aunt Bee'sPickles and I am from Iowa. I was so shocked but excited to receive a message from Kimberly asking me to be a guest designer. I started immediately thinking of school starting. My boys are grown up but I still remember all the excitement in our home at that time of the year. I do have to say there was more excitement the younger they were. =) So in that line of thinking it came to, start of the year teacher gifts. I went out on the web in search of ideas. Something nice to give a teacher to start off the year right. I found this pencil idea and fell in love with it for so many reasons.
First of all, it is full of chocolate. Every teacher will need a little chocolate to start the year off right. Also, it is a gift they can enjoy for a while and then it will be gone. Click here to see the pencil instructions.
The pencil was only the start of the project. I used the "Tiny Doilies 2" die set. As you can see it is the perfect size for a tag on the pencil.
Then I used the Stamping All Around Fall stamp set. The circle stamps fit perfectly inside the Tiny Doilies 2 dies. The books, apple, letters, those stamps are separate from the circle so I changed them up and stamped them in the matching paper for the tag. I just fell in love with these cuties.
The only problem is...making sure they get to the teachers!
Happy crafting and thanks you so much Kimberly for this opportunity!
