Jar of Cards for Teachers!

Well I sure did not get done as much as I wanted to this year for Christmas but I am out of time for teacher gifts. Here is the main gift for my son's three main teachers. I found a three pack of these plastic jars at JoAnn's. Of course they only had one package so this is all I got -- but you know I will be on the look out for more! I feel a class coming on.

I tried to keep them simple so that when they are empty they can use them other other things - like maybe a candy holder for their desks or what every they desire. I filled them with little mini 3 x 3 cards all with the Thank You theme. The individual pictures are also in this post. Not sure I will type up all the details but if you have a questions feel free to ask. This was my first experience with 3 x 3's and I really love them. I will be doing more for sure!


I really like how this one turned out. I still love this set even though it is retired. Nice and Easy Notes.









The ones that I gave to the teachers did not look as bad as this next photo. The punch was not working well on this one. I assure you the ones the teachers got look better!

Sure hope that you are feeling better - I may try to stop by quickly to drop off my money on Saturday.
