Teacher Gifts

I'm BIZZEEEEEEE today working on design team projects, Christmas stuff and just trying to unstuff this stuffy head of mine.....but I wanted you to know there's lots of good ideas bursting out of me today so stay tuned for some good stuff! Here's a few little projects I've made for teacher gifts this year. These first little notebooks are junior notebooks that I've had cut in half. I used the Stamping Bella teacher stamp and colored all the images with Copic markers. The scallop *take note* sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Paper......who knows, I dug it out of my stash and forgot to look before I used it all up! Here's the inside of the notebooks. They measure about 2.5" x 8".
These are simple little lotion bottles from Target that I embellished with a scallop tag. The round sentiment part is from Lizzie Anne. The inside snowflake is from Papertrey Ink. I cut the circles and scallop circles with my Spellbinder's Dies. I love that I can always find the perfect size circle!! If we have time, the girls and I are going to bake star shaped sugar cookies to match the little sticker on the lotion bottles.
Enjoy and I hope your are de-stressing....getting those presents wrapped, shopping and baking done......so that you can enjoy the holiday season with your family.

Hello
I would love to know how to create the covers for the notebooks (where do you score for the "binding"). Your projects always inspire me and I love reading your blog. Thanks for sharing your creativity!
Happy Holidays

Michelle,
I just love your ideas! You do such wonderful work. I loved the notebooks you made for the teachers. I went out to buy notebooks and I can't for the life of me figure out how you cut them in half. I tried many different cutters and none of them looked as good as yours!! Can you please share you secret!?!?! Thanks so much!
