Teacher Thank You Gifts ~ OT

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a post stuffed with awesome products from Oriental Trading.  I went with a teacher appreciation theme since that week is May 2-May 6 this year.  Teachers do so much for our kids!
First up, these watercolor cards...I used colored card bases from DCWV and layered the stamped and watercolored paper with black cardstock.  I love the watercolors that I used!  So many colors to choose from.
I embellished with homemade enamel dots and Trendy Twine.  I also used foam tape to pop up the front layers.
The next set of cards were made in a very similar way as the first two.  In addition to the colored card bases from DCWVblack cardstockwatercolors, I added pearls from the Halloween self-adhesive pearls and Valentine self adhesive pearls packs.
I had fun splattering the watercolors on the stamped paper.
The final card I created used a colored card base from DCWVblack cardstockfoam tape and the School paper kit.
Last, but definitely not least, I made these goody filled cups for the teachers!  Here is a list of supplies that I used for decorating the mugs...
Teacher Mug with Pencil Handle
School paper kit
Stick-Em Adhesive Dots
Super Sensational Ribbons
Here is a closer look at what was inside the mugs!
Clear Gift Bags
Catholic School Pencils
Star Stickers
Animal Print Heart Erasers
Apple Shaped Sticky Notes
All of the products from Oriental Trading were great and I really enjoyed creating with them.  I hope my boys' teachers enjoy their gifts!

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
