Teacher's Birthday Gift

Tomorrow is already the last day of term 1. During the Easter break it is Renee's teacher's birthday. One of the class reps thought it would be nice to do a card for her. I offered to make the card, but thought the logistics of getting the card round to the whole class for the children to write something, I'd thought to make her a little birthday book with artwork from the children.

Last week I quickly cut up a few sheets of cardstock in 4" x 4" squares and passed them onto the parents for each child to create something for their teacher. We will be giving the birthday book to the teacher first thing in the morning.

All the children have done their own little artwork, but in the photo collage below I've just shown Renee's creation as I didn't ask for permission from any of the other parents to post their child's.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics | Patterned Paper + Alpha Stickers + Die-Cut Stickers: Bella Blvd | Scallop Die: Papertrey Ink | Ribbon: Paperchase | Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts | Tag: Making Memories | Corner Rounder: EK Success | Button | Label Die: Spellbinder Nestabilities (Labels One) | Marker: ZIG EK Success| Label Stamp: 7Gypsies

I really enjoyed making this little book from scratch and I'm pleasantly surprised how sturdy it is. Let's hope she'll like it too.
