Teacher Gifts Part 4: The Total Package-lots of photos

The end of the year teacher baskets are finished and I am so pleased with how they turned out. We have a meeting at the school this afternoon and will be delivering the gifts then. It was such a fun gift to create. I have shared many of the item tags I made for inside, but still I have several more to share with you now...I admit I saved my favorites for the end.
The scissors are my absolute favorite of all. I used Cricut Essentials to cut the doily layers and Cricut Everyday is where I found the cute scissors cut. I used my I-Rock to add the silver piece in the center of the scissors and I just love this tag.
Next, are two simple tags featuring fun fonts. The first is "You're Fantastic" on a bottle of the cleaner. This comes from a cheer they do in my daughter's classroom (point and say You're.."spray" someone and say fantastic) that we all use now. I embossed the tag backings. Also, a set of mini-scented candles with a "You are SCENT-Sational" tag.
I also found these cute picture frame pinwheels (Hobby Lobby) and added a fun flower to them using Create-A Critter. The final items in the basket are pencils and highlighters. I used the cute pencil off Smiley cards for the tag on the pencils and the light bulb from Wall Decor & More on the highlighters.
The simple banner on the front was made using Lyrical Letters and my Creative Memories Circle cutter. I love having a small hole punch to make things like this work.
Finally, I added little gift cards using the Phrases cartridge.
I say again how happy I am with the finally product and look forward to presenting them to the amazing teachers she had this year. It has been a very difficult year in her growing process and these 2 were just well...FANTASTIC!!
