I have created 2 projets for the end of year teacher gifts. Candice (my youngest) will be done with her 1st year of Montessori school in a couple of days. We created a little Sticky Note holder and a Thank You card. She has 2 teachers in her main classroom, but we made enough of each project so she can write a personnal message to every teacher that helped her this year...Especially Nurse Dana.

We choose to create the projects in Candice's favorite color Orange and what perfect DSP to go along with it...Sweet & Sour. The perfect retiring stamp set to use was Bugs & Kisses.
