Teacher Gift

Happy New Year! I know, it's been awhile since my last post. I've been away for a bit taking care of some family business, but I'm back now and wanted to share a few more projects that I worked on for Christmas. Every year, I make Akemi's teacher a calendar for Christmas. I was sorta hoping that I'd have some leftovers from my craft fair, but I didn't, so I had to whip this one up at the very last minute. I mean I did this calendar the night before her last day of school before winter break! Talk about procrastination! Anyway, luckily had had leftover DCWV school stack (4x6 size) paper left, so it didn't take long to choose the papers I wanted to use. Since I kept everything simple this year, it didn't take long to put it together... until I came to the top of the calendar... Hmmmm.... had a hard time figuring out what I was going to do. Think, think, think... what do you think of when you think of teachers or school? Apples of course! Since my last episode with my cricut was still fresh in my mind, I decided to use my handy dandy spellbinder dies instead. Found my old apple set and cut out this apple. Then I make it kawaii-style by adding in a cute face. I couldn't resist making it have a big 'ol smile! Scroll down for the rest of the calendar... I hope Akemi's teacher liked it! Be back soon with more teacher gifts.

Where can I find these calendar pages? The last calendar I made, I had to hand stamp each month. What a task!

When you are thinking for giving gifts like jeweler, drink, cosmetics, perfumes or any sort of this packaging matters really deeply. Packaging is a sumptuous way to present your gift. Your beloved ne get more excited about the gift if it had a nice luxury packaging.

I feel so good when I get a gift. I like to untie the bow, open ripping of shinny wrapper, peel of label and get my gift. It’s an amazing feeling . It enhance the experience of satisfaction which not only helps add value to the purchase but also helps to reinforce the brand and build sender loyalty, Box Designers

The term luxury makes us confuse and we assume it as expensive. Your post is an excellent example of a luxury but not expensive packaging. I loved it.
