Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Teacher Appreciation Gifts ~ My daughter has just completed grade 2 and had an absolute fabulous year.

These were lots of fun to make even though they took a bit of time. Each desk was about 2 hours of scoring, folding, taping, and assembling. The most challenging thing on these desks were the feet - they are made from 3/4 circles ~ my husband made all of them for me (there are eight per desk). I purchased the pattern from Craft Project Central and the desk was designed by Michelle Ueligitone. So cute. Of course with every project we always put our own spin on it and my addition to the desk was wrapping the sides in cardstock so you cannot see the drawers stacked on top of each other. The drawers were filled with sweet treats.
Recipe: (primarily Stampin' Up unless noted)
~ Stampin' Up cardstock
~ Coredinations paper (so much fun)
~ Stamp Sets: Full of Life, misc. little ones for accents, Tart and Tangy (apple)
~ Designer Series Paper
~ Buttons: dollar store and Stampin' Up
~ Glue Dots to adhere the buttons
~ lots of double sided sticky strip
