handmade gift packaging for teacher

There's no better way to make your child's teacher feel extra special at the start of the school year than with some beautiful handmade gift packaging. Not only will she not want to toss it after opening the gift, but she'll appreciate the extra effort to make her gift look unique. To create this pretty packaging I combined Wildflower, one of my favorite We R paper collections, with some of my favorite We R Punch Boards. (To view the original post on the We R Memory Keepers blog, including a full supply list, CLICK HERE.)

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to create the bag, and then added some flowers that I fussy cut from the Wildflower patterned paper. I cut out a tag from another piece of Wildflower paper and then added a butterfly from the Wildflower Ephemera Bits and a Wildflower sticker for the sentiment.

For the box I used the 123 Punch Board to make the box and the bow at the top. Love how versatile that punch board is! I added some ephemera butterflies and Gold Sequin Stickers to finish it off.

It's the little details that will show teacher how much you appreciate all she does. Try making some handmade packaging for your teacher appreciation gifts this year.
