Teacher Appreciation

It's Teacher Appreciation week over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  I made some garden seed packets, thanks to this tutorial from Aaron Brown.  I got the sentiment from other blog posts while searching for teacher gifts on the Internet.

These packets use Clementine paper and Dotty for You (retired).  I made the tag using Close to my Heart's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

While I was making teacher gifts, I made some generic seed packets using the Buzz and Bumble paper and the cute seed packet stamp from the Buzz and Bumble Workshop on the Go kit.

Here is another packet again using Clementine as well as a view of the seed packet pulled out of the holder.  These were really quick and fun to make.  Thanks Aaron for sharing the directions!
