Gifts for Teachers

It was a very full Memorial Day weekend for me. Sorry for the delay of my "supposedly" Sunday blog post. We were busy hanging-out with my mom and my sister and her family. I spent yesterday making Thank You cards and broaches/pins for my son's teachers. They turn out really nice. I used my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (113439) and the Fun Flowerz Bigz L Dies (121812). My son is eighteen and usually just ignores my hobby, but last week he asked me if I could make fabric pins for his teachers. He even picked the fabric for each of his female teachers. I was ecstatic! So, here they are.

Fabrics: Springtime Vintage (121817) and Timeless Portrait (122337)
Antique Brads (117273)

Fabrics: Flirtatious (122335), Sweet Stitches (121818) and Summer Smooches (125411 - in the 2012/2013 Catalog out June 1st, 2012)

Thank You cards for my son's male teachers. I used my new obsession, sponge daubers!
