Some quick teachers gifts

This is the last week of school for my oldest son-I can't believe Kindergarten is over already! Sniff!! Anyway, in standard Danielle fashion here I am whipping up gifts at the last minute. I found all the items at Home Goods. Oh, how I love that store!

All images are from CC Designs, My Rubber Ducky set, found at All That Scraps. They were colored with Copics and cut out with Nesties.

In these two tins, which I bought for $1 at Target, I added a bottle of bath and shower gel and a matching scented bath salt. The lavender bath salt was in a huge container so I bought the little glass canister at Michaels, also for $1, and filled it up. I have lots more left for gifts (and maybe some for me too!).


The ribbon wouldn't lay nicely on the tin when I tried to wrap it around and being pressed for time I just opted for a simple bow.


The two boxes below are some great big gorgeous and fantastically smelling Italian Luxury Soaps! Well, that's what the box says! One is lavender and the other is almond and they smell so good! I love using these! I just made really simple belly bands for these and added some ribbon and bows using ribbon from PTI.

I added Diamond Glaze and some glitter to the bubbles for a little sparkle. Aren't they cute?

I feel guilty that I didn't get fancier on the packaging, and kinda skimped on the tin decorations, but I feel like time is something I just don't have these days! I keep thinking that one day I will catch up, but I think I keep getting busier! But you know, Joeys teachers won't know I could have gone crazy on these and will like them just the way they are. We are our own worst critics aren't we?

Have a great day and come back tomorrow for the new Color Throwdown!

You still put lots of thought and time into them with what you did. Any teacher would be happy to have such adorably wrapped gifts. I too love Home Goods. I have a couple of friends that when we get together we have lunch and spend hours in Home Goods. Good times!!
