Gifts for Teacher

Hi everyone, Kerry here with my first Whimsie Doodle blog post! I've decided to kick off my first post with a sneak peak at some new releases from the September stamp line. Fall is officially here, and school is back in full swing, so how about we celebrate with some "back to school" themed goodies??

I decided to create a "back to school" gift out of some old Crystal Light containers to celebrate the start of the new school year. These would be great to give to your kids on their first day, or even to celebrate the conclusion of their first full week or month. You can fill them with most anything: candy, crayons, pencils, scissors, etc. - possibilities are endless and these can be changed to match any theme or school colors.


The stamp reads "make your mark!" - I colored the pencil with my Copic markers. The apple paper was something I snagged at my local Michael's, I thought it went perfectly with this theme!


 Next up is a fun greeting card to give to a Teacher. This would be great to save for Teacher Appreciation week, or to use around the Holidays to say thank you to a teacher. I colored the adorable little school girl with my Copic Markers and used foam adhesive to pop her off the card a bit.



Here is a closer look at the details of the card:


Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check back on the "What's New" part of the website on Wednesday, Sept 5th so you can grab these adorable stamps. You can also follow the latest here on the Blog or Facebook. :)
