Teacher Appreciation Week, Birthdays, Mother's Day

Next week, a lot of schools will be celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week.  Most schools discourage monetary gifts for the teachers and ask that the students make cards, draw pictures and/or bring flowers from the garden.  These are all very lovely things for the kids to do, but I like to let the teachers know that I also appreciate their hard work during the year.  In Wichita, we have Dollar Tree stores, and I just love them.  Recently I found these darling compact mirrors and bought up a few for gifts.  (If I like something I try to buy many of them, because the next time I go in, they're usually sold out)  To really dress up my wonderful $1 find, I have made these adorable clutch purses to give them in.  These super affordable mirrors in this clutch makes them an extra special gift for next to nothing!  Who wouldn't love to get one of these purses with a handy compact inside!  And not just for teachers, but girlfriends, sisters and yes MOMS.
These are from SVG Cuts Luxury Handbags collection.  The possibilities are endless!  Super cute and easy to make!

In addition to Mother's Day, a lot of us will have someone celebrating a graduation.  Whether it is from high school or college, any graduate would love to receive one of these special boxes with a nice gift, gift card or cash in it.  These can be made in the school colors to make it even more personal.  This is from the SVG Cuts file called Graduation Day.  In addition to the cap there are two cards, one to hold a gift card and one to hold cash, a photo album and an elegant box for a bigger gift.  Any of these will surely bring a smile to the lucky receiver!
