Thankful for Teachers

The theme this week for Give Thanks at Heart 2 Heart Challenges got me thinking. We do not celebrate Thanksgiving here in New Zealand but I am definitely thankful for a lot of people in my life.

My son has had an amazing first year at school, and since I have been away for the last few weeks having surgery his teacher has been great at keeping him settled and into a routine. I wanted to say thank you to his teacher as I am grateful for all of the things she has done this year.

I saw this cute idea on Tatertots and Jello and set about recreating my own version on the Cricut.

I cut the Popcorn Box from the Movie Night digital file using Colonial White and Cranberry cardstock. I made this box as big as I could for one sheet of paper. After I had assembled the box, I got my supplies together.

Some M&Ms and a movie theatre gift card fit perfectly inside this box!

I also cut a tag from the Cricut and used the Teacher Appreciation stamp set for the sentiment.

Lastly, using this word art as inspiration, I printed off a poem and attached it to a card backed with the retired Chalk It Up paper packet.

I hope my son's teacher likes this gift!
