As a teacher, I always appreciated the homemade gifts the most! Those gifts that were handmade brought closer to the heart the impact we had on our students and their families. From cookies to tamales to even just a card made from scratch they were all the best! Nothing speaks more than homemade gifts.

What teacher wouldn't love receiving this beautiful handcrafted gift bag? And it would be a lovely addition on the desk to later hold pencils or anything needed! If you don't have the fancy equipment, I bet you could free form draw and cut a flower pattern and even write the message in your best penmanship,with some gold ink flow pens! Glue on a pretty gem or button in the flower's center for some extra embellishment! So pretty, thanks for sharing!
