Back To School Teacher Gifts

 I am so not ready for school to start!  I want the summer to go on and on but, since that is not possible, I better just enjoy what is left.  I think one of the reasons why I want to delay school is because my little girl is starting Kindergarten this year!  It just can't be!!!  She is growing up way too fast.  She is really looking forward to school and cannot wait to make friends. makes the transition a little bit easier.  I should not forget to mention that my oldest is going into 4th grade!!!  Now....he isn't as enthusiastic about the whole going back to school, but he needs his social time back and a little less time in front of his beloved Playstation! ;)  Kids and their electronics!  When I was a kid, going outside and riding bikes was all I could think about.  How times have changed! 

Anyways...on to the little gifts I made for both of my kids' teachers.  I found these cute little gift boxes in the Walmart 88 cent bins.  The notepads were there too.  I grabbed a couple of lunch sacks in my stash and folded them up to make a pocket to hold the pencils and chocolate bar.  I found some REALLY OLD paper when I first joined Close To My Heart and started to work on getting the pocket all decorated.  Cute, huh?!
I happened to check the Heart 2 Heart blog today and they are having a Back To School challenge today.  Perfect!!  I hope the teachers enjoy the little gift. ;)  Thanks for stopping by!

These projects are super cute! I'm sure the teacher will love them. Isn't it nice to find a use for older paper?
