Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

I know, you probably could have used this like a week or so ago. Sorry 'bout that, now you have it for next year! But don't you fret, I came up with another idea you could use it for. I found this EASY idea off Becky Higgins blog, she used it as a favor at a baby shower.

I used it as a gift for the boys teachers, then I used the extras for the "sisters" I go visiting teaching to. I know, it's like I was channeling Pioneer Party or something. I just wrote the message on the first page and dropped it off on the last day of the month (just like a good visiting teacher should)!

Here's how to make them. I bought 5x7 notepads at Walmart, they came in a pack of 6 for $2.44. I bought the pack of 6, because a pack of 3 was $1.44, and I did the math and was like for a dollar more I can get 3 more notepads. Then using my plethora of scrapbook scraps, I cut a 2 inch by 5 inch piece of cute paper, glued it over the top of the notepad, slapped on a coordinating flower and jewel, and WA-LAH! Cute, easy and CHEAP, just how I like things! I would love to hear more ideas on things to use them for, otherwise my "sisters" are going to have a year supply of notepads.
