Teachers Gifts

Finally!!  I got to play a little today after wrapping-up Owen's birthday last weekend!!!  FYI, a birthday on a Sunday evening is not a good plan!  I try not to have his parties on a Saturday because it always conflicts with office Christmas parties.  But, I've got to come up with a new plan.  It stinks to have to clean up after a party and then get up around 5 am the next morning!!  He seemed to have a great time, so, that's the important part I suppose!

Vicki Wizniuk posted a coffee cup card on her blog here back in October.  I knew then that I had to make those for Owen's teachers to hold a Starbuck's gift card...it seems to me that anyone that spends their days with 25 3-5 year olds NEEDS caffeine! ;O)  Anyway, I of course waited until today to get these going...so, they were a little rushed.  I had to get them done in time to drop-off today because Owen won't have class again until January 4th.  But, I think they still turned out pretty cute.

Vicki used a template she purchased at My Creations, you also get a similar super cute cupcake template.  But, I tried every which way and couldn't get my Paypal or Credit Card to go through.  So, I had to wing it.  I think I did o.k., but, I'm sure it would have been much cuter with an actual template.  I'm going to have to keep trying.  I HAVE to have the cupcake version!!  I didn't take any pictures of the inside, but, it's glued to the lid and you just slide the lid off to pull it out.





I should tell you that I took this pictures around noon today, but, it was overcast and already kind of dark. I hate to tell you how much photoshopping I had to do!!  I apologize for the poor pictures.  I'll have to come up with a better idea until our sunshine returns this spring!
