Teacher Gift Inspiration Because Teachers Are Amazing

Hello Creative Friends, I am so glad you are here! 
Today I am playing along with this months International Stamping' Up! Blog Highlights hosted by Kylie Bertucci and  you can VOTE for my project here.

This month the theme is Teachers Gifts and with Back to School Season upon us the timing couldn't be more perfect!  Our Teachers really work hard for our kids and it is such a wonderful thing to take the time to thank them for all that they do.  If you're looking for ideas, you have come to the right place as there is tons of inspiration from those of us playing along this month. Be sure to check out everyones beautiful work and prepare to be inspired then take a moment to place your VOTE for your favorites 😉

For my project today, I have transformed an ordinary brown paper bag into a FABULOUS little Back Pack using the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper and coordinating Soft Sky Card Stock. 
Can I just say that I adore this color combo of Kraft and soft sky! 💕 Don't you?

This adorably fun paper back pack is perfect for packing up with goodies to show your Childs teacher some love and appreciation this year.

The added touch of the Soft Sky strips to the back of the bag really pulls everything together and helps make it look like a mini back pack. 

To complete the look  I stamped the you are amazing sentiment from the All Things Thanks Stamp set and added some shine by tracing over it with my fine tip glue pen.

  1. Awww super cute little backpack, love the foil frenzy dsp anyone would be thrilled to receive this. I don't think I have the patience to make it, but I love it. thanks so much for sharing :)

    1. Thank you Anne! But I have to say, it is actually pretty quick and easy to put together. I don't have much patience myself when it comes to crafting so it has to be relatively easy for me to tackle it. I'm working on a video to be posted later this week and you will be able to see just how easily it all comes together :)

    2. Wow, that would be amazing, thank you so much, looking forward to seeing your video :) I promise to give it a try :)
