I always find it difficult to pick out a teacher's gift so I usually just get a gift card to an educational store or maybe Starbucks. It is nice to put it in a festive wrapper so I created this set for that purpose.

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch for the card. And I got the inspiration for the bite out of the apple from the Inspiration challenge this week at SCS.

The inside has a little place for a gift card. Sorry about the club penguin, it was all I had in my craft room, but you get the idea. I made a card like this at an SU stamp camp so I don't have a link for directions. It was made using a 4.5 X 11 piece of card stock, scored at 4.25,5.5, and 6.75, and folded to create a little mountain. I used my SU punch (can't remember what it is called) to make the place for the GC.

This is a Criss Cross Box and I got the template from Nicole Heady's Blog. It has a little bag that I can fill with candy or maybe some mulling spices for apple cider.

The image is Lottie and the sentiment is from Anya Says both from The Greeting Farm and the paper is digi from Raspberry Road Designs (Apple Cider).

I am off to clean and shop for Thanksgiving (and maybe sneak in a little stamping) have a great day!
