End of the year teacher gift

I found this adorable Imaginisce paper and wanted to use it for a gift for my son's preschool teacher. I used Lauren Meader's My Timeless Template called Perfect Matchbox for this project. I'm still deciding what to put in the box...chocolates and a gift card?? candle?

For her card, I was inspired by Melissa Phillip's card .

Being a teacher is the most important job in the world (after mommies and daddies!) and I hope that our teacher will know how much we appreciate her! She is an amazing person and we will miss being in class with her!

Stunning card and gift box. Whatever you decide to put in the box, I'm sure the teacher is going to love it.

Darn it, I've been upstaged. Which is not totally hard, considering I haven't gotten her ANYTHING yet. Last day is tomorrow, huh? Guess I'm going shopping today.

By the way, this is all gorgeous. You have an incredible talent.
