End of the school year....

SUMMER? what?? Where did spring go??? It has escaped me.

Yesterday marked the last day of kindergarten for my little 5 year old. 1st grade! bah! I can't believe it.

Here is our end of the year teacher's gift we made together. I think the original idea came from the FamilyFun magazine.

We went to staples, found a double sided container box (for $3), filled it with office supplies and little treats.

Used my Silhouette to cut the vinyl for both the sides and voila! Really easy and fun.

1st side

Little note from a grateful student

She was insistent on making her card out of her pink lined notebook paper, and I didn't protest. Especially when she came up with her little note without my help.

I loved how it all came out!

Super cute, rach! Wish we were still neighbors for MANY reasons but especially for all the creating! Sigh.
