Teacher Gifts Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the 
Teacher Gifts Blog Hop!
hosted by Joy at Joys Life...

If you arrived here from Joy's blog then
you're in the right place.  If you just happened on
my blog then please go back to Joy's blog HERE
in order to start at the beginning:)

Since we are celebrating Teacher Appreciation 
we have all made gifts that would be appropriate
to give to your teacher or your child's teacher
to show just how much you appreciate them!

Here is my project...






I would love to get this basket of apples from someone...
just fill the apples with a little treat inside like
Hershey's Kisses or whatever little
sweet you want to surprise them with...

The stamp I used, "a little something Yummy"
is from one of Joy's newest sets 
  called Tag you're it Number One.
I also used "For a" "Great" "Teacher" from the
Mother & Daughter set and
"Thank you" from All Around Sentiments set.
To get all of the Joy's Life stamp sets, visit her 
products page HERE!

For the basket, I used my Make the Cut
and cut out an awesome SVG file from SVG Attic

You can get this file HERE!

Now...for me to show you all my appreciation
for your visiting my blog and and supporting
me and all of my projects, I am giving away
some blog candy!  Yep...check this out...
I'm giving away a Cricut Lite Cartridge called
"Recess"  how appropriate:)


All you have to do to win this cartridge is 
*Become a follower of my blog
* "Like" my Facebook page (right under my blinkie in the right column)
and 
*Leave a comment on this post about what you 
have given or would give to your favorite teacher :)

I'll pick the winner on Monday the 23rd!
Good Luck!

Ok on to the amazing Nina's Blog for another great gift idea:)

Here is the entire list of Designers 
on the hop in case you hop in the wrong direction...


Thanks for hopping along with us:)

  3. Julie,
    This is PRECIOUS!! Can you imagine how surprised and touched a teacher would be to receive such a thoughtful and detailed gift? They would be showing it off to every teacher in the building! It's GREAT! Thank you for being part of the blog hop! <3

  4. This is so cool! I know teachers and they really love handwritten notes of appreciation. I love to do that so they really understand how grateful I am toward them. This is such a neat project I like to make original goodies like this too! TFS! Already a follower of you everywhere. Love your work!

  8. I love the basket of apples, amazing job! I would love to make something like this for my daughter's teacher who is retiring this year. He is very health concious so candy was always out for him and sometimes I feel weird buying candles for a man LOL. He does love nature so we bought him a bird house and bird seed for Christmas.

  10. What a cute idea!! I will have to try this one. I have given tootsie pop flower bouquets, note pads, and crayola wreaths as teacher gifts. I am looking for something new this year. Thank you for the inspiration.

  11. This is amazing! I love it! What kind of paper did you use in the basket? It is perfect for the basket.

    I am wanting to get my daughter's teacher a Cricut machine for her gift. Money is tight here like everywhere else. She is the BEST 1st grade teacher!!! My daughter has some special needs and she works sooooo hard to help her.

    I would get her a Cricut because she has to hand cut alot of shapes for her class. :( When I found out, I told her I would cut anything out she needs cutting to help. I am hoping HSN has a special real soon!! :)) Can't wait to see the rest of the projects!

  36. I now help make teacher gifts for my grand children, however, back in the day, I gave cookies shaped like apples or some bath/soap products. Stationery was also popular. Thanks for the opportunity to win the recess cartridge. I sure could use it for school and playground photos. Love your blog and creativity.

  37. Oh girl this is simply fabulous! I always love what you make though Julie, so talented. Okay as far as a teacher gift...the kiddos and I always make the teachers a gift. This was actually something that we made for my sons teacher for Valentines. She loved the little apples and keeps it as a centerpiece on her desk. ;) keep inspiring!!

  38. Julie you are so talented! I love this little gift for a teacher. The kids and I actually made this for a teacher in February. She loved it and still has it as a centerpiece in her class. We always make the teacher gifts. All of my kiddos teachers are my favorite ;) I think it takes one amazing person to be a teacher. We've given them homemade stuff, girl scout cookies, cricut cartridges and My favorite Peachy Keen stamps ;). Hope you are having a great weekend!

    Hugs,

  64. I love love love this little basket of apples! What an awesome idea! My children are all grown but if I had the chance to give a teacher a gift, I think it would be an "award" of some kind. They must have so much patience and organization to handle so many children at the same time. I really think they are underappreciated for all they do. Thanks for sharing your super cute project! Already a follower here, FB and Pinterest. ((hugs)) msmith38652@gmail.com

  65. Super cute teacher gift! I love the basket and the little apples!! I have given many gifts over the years and they have been all kinds of things. lol But I find that teachers love chocolate and it is a must have for the school year, so I tend to give chocoate in a crafty way.

Love your little basket, it's so cute :) I like you on FB & follow your blog too :) You have some pretty amazing projects, how can I not follow you :) I never used to give my teacher's gifts, but now I do for my daughter's teachers always! My favorite gift was some wonderful bath & body works soap (cause you know they get dirty hands) and a starbucks gift card, cause you know they need their coffee to get through the day!!! Thanks for the chance :)

Also, my son's girlfriend has a little boy and can't wait to do things for him!! Thank you so much for the chance I really want this cartridge! I'm a follower and I just liked you on facebook!
