Holiday Gift for my son's Teacher

I just love making gifts for the holidays...they mean so much more coming from the heart. I got this wonderful idea from a fellow papercrafter named Melissa Phillips. I can't take full credit. I did put my personal touch and changed a few things. I really hope that Mrs. Lee enjoys this warm smelling candle {apple scent, hence the apple/teacher theme :)}.

I used several different products. The only CTMH supplies are the apple leaf from the stamp set Friendship Blessings and the small apple stamped over the phrase is from September Word Puzzle. The Olive ribbon on the card is CTMH and the Cardstock is too.

Recipe Swap

This is such an excellent idea for a handmade Christmas gift. I joined a swap with 12 other ladies. We make a 6x6 recipe and put it in a CTMH Display Album. I can't wait to get it all put together. I am going up to Great Falls in a couple of weeks and will recieve the rest of the recipes. I think it will be hard for me to give it as a gift! :) I think I will keep it! I will post the final result when I get it all made up.

All supplies are CTMH unless otherwise noted:
B&T paper: Rustic Trail (Retiring at the end of the month)
CS and ink: Olive, Cocoa, Dutch Blue
Ribbon: Cocoa
Stamp set: Hook, Line, and Sinker (Retiring at the end of the month)
Creative Keepsakes Font CD
