Teacher Appreciation Treats Share!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! It has been one BUSY BUSY week for me! Crafty wise! Really it has been a BUSY 5 weeks for me Crafty wise.. wanna see!
I have made in the last 5/6 weeks between Birthday Invites, Thank Yous, Easter, Moms Day, Birthday, and Teacher Appreciation Week-
46 cards!
18 Templates/Treats/Gifts
1 Mini Book
6 Tags...
and my house has the MESS to prove it! I sat down today to figure it all out.. .and went WOW! No wonder I felt behind for awhile! HA HA!!

ANYWAY (LONG POST AHEAD.. you are warned! LOL!)... This week our school was having teacher appreciation WEEK! so each day we took in something to the teacher.. and 3 days we took in things to the recess teachers and then today we added 3 more to the loop.. just to Thank them! Thought I would share our week with ya!

Gonna start with todays since I am entering it in some challenges!!
This template is from Perfect Presentation (Bag It Up used SVG file!) Seriously a FUN EASY template.. I had to make 8 of them.. after getting my stuff all cut and ready.. it took me about 2 hours to get them all together.. Not bad at all! (considering I have template that take 2 hours (PLUS) for one! LOL)
Anyway.. used my spellbinders, PTI, bling and some inking.. and it was ready to go!
Card made by my Amanda-
(challenges listed below in post!)

Ok here come the rest.. one day was flowers.. I forgot to get a photo of all of them.. but we put them in vases and added a fun tag!
One day was candy day! So Amanda made up these cute tags.. for the treats!
One day was bring in Post-It Notes.. I figured she would get ALOT.. so Amanda and I decided to make up one she could keep on her desk! (The teachers favorite color is red.. so Amanda picked this combo out!)
Then one day was school supply day.. I didnt take a photo of the pencil top erasers and kleenex she asked for! LOL!

Here are the cards Amanda made up for the recess teachers, and some friends.. she had to make 7.. but used these 2 cute flowers for them!
Here are all the boxes-
Now if your wondering what is inside.. (some had candy.. some did not since it was candy day earlier.. but here is one with it!) I used my SCAL to cut them all .. shrank it down.. I think 4 clicks.. wanted it to fit on 1 8.5 X 11 sheet... still holds ALOT! Candy, Lotion, Gift Card, and Amandas card to them!
If you have made it this far ~ THANKS much!! THANK YOU for stopping by!!! I hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend! I will be back Sunday to share my Moms Day goodies!
