Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #23 - All For the Teachers!!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!! It's time for another super-fun challenge at Decorate to Celebrate!! For this challenge, it's all about Teachers!!


For Challenge #23, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a CLASSROOM!! Let's celebrate EVERYTHING WONDERFUL ABOUT OUR TEACHERS with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!! :) For my project, I decorated a bottle of hand sanitizer (every teacher needs this on her desk, right??!!) and created an apple gift bag to hold it :)


For the apple bag, I cut two apples at 6" from Doodlecharms, hiding the cutouts on my Gypsy. All of the paper is from Heidi Grace Tweet Memories stack. The leaf is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swirls folder. #1 Teacher is cut from Base Camp. I made a box to go between the two apples to hold the bottle of sanitizer.


For the bottle, I wrapped it with Heidi Grace paper, and a decorative border from Spellbinders Lacy Doily Accents. The red tag is a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ribbon tag. I used a Spellbinders Beaded Circle die, and inked it with Colorbox warm red fluid chalk. The circle is a Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circle Small die."Thanks" is from K Andrew Designs Winged Things stamp set:


Right now, Kristal is having a 20% off store-wide sale!! Enter the code "letshavefun" to take advantage of this special offer!!


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see what my amazing Desing Team sisters have created!! Then link up your For The Teachers decorations!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  11. Like the makeover on the hand sanitizer and the wonderful apple shaped gift bag. Any teacher would be happy to receive these. brings back memories of making teacher gifts. Been awhile since my daughter is now a sophomore in college. I miss her. She will be home a couple wks after semester ends in May. She emailed that she wants to chill with friends before she comes home for the Summer.

  22. My sweet friend, this is such a fantastic teacher gift! The paper for the apple bag is gorgeous and perfect. :o) (The bag itself is genius, of course. You are so amazing.) The Spellbinder work is beautiful and I love the inclusion of ribbon on the pump. :o) One of my favorite parts about this is how you coordinated the font paper to the sanitizer wrapping. Love! Amazing job as always, my ever-so-talented friend!

    Hugs and blessings!
