Meet the teacher!

Hello there! It's Becky with you today and as I write this, my girlies are finishing up breakfast before we take Abie to her first day of second grade. I can hardly believe school is already starting! Friday night was "meet the teacher" night. We never did this but I think it's great because it gives the kids a chance to calm their first day jitters a bit by finding their room and dropping off their supplies. I whipped up this little gift for Abie's teacher, which we took on Friday night.
It's a simple jar with a circle of patterned school paper layered on a scalloped circle.
Here's a close up picture. I wrapped Spring Moss ribbon around the jar and tied on a little tag with some Rustic Cream twine. On the tag I used some Spring Moss paper and stamped the apple leaf and stem from Everyday Button Bits and adhered a Scarlet Jewel button. I finished it off with a little tag using one of the sentiments from Everyday Button Bits. We filled the jar with mini candy bars. I think her teacher was really excited about the chocolate!
I hope you have a great day!
