These thoughtful gifts mean SO much (and I tell you as a K teacher myself). Thanks for sharing these fun ideas.


Fun ideas! Post its work well to hold the dies in place. I find washi tape does an excellent job as well, and does not tear the paper.


really fun and unique teacher gifts! love the tote die!!

Becky Green

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the little FAVOR BOX!!!!!!!!! I will DEFINATELY add this to my WISH LIST!!!!!!!!!! :) (Along with those little Sunglasses!) :)Your WHOLE IDEA is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!! Your kids teachers will LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE THIS!!!!!! :)AND your FABULOUS IDEAS in the past with the smaller ZIPPER DIES are what caused me to begin buying PTI!!!!!!!! :) I LOOOOOOVE those dies AND the NEW LARGE ONE!!!!!!!!!! :)THANKS BETSY!!!!!!!! :)YOU'RE FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!! :)

I love this idea for a teacher gift. I myself am a teacher, so it is nice to see something other than the traditional apple theme. Great idea! The tote is my favorite!

June K.

Great ideas! So cute.


FABULOUS project! LOVE the orange theme gifts. They are so cute and colorful and the zipper w/reply beneath is so clever. Perfect pair for summer. Would make great party table settings or favors, as well. A lot to ask--but--I wish there were instructions on how to make/assemble the sweet little bag, too. :)

Julie Campbell

This is just adorable, Betsy! So clever!


Which zipper die is used on this tag? Can you give me the # so I can order the correct one. Thanks for the fabulous ideas.

Brilliant! I so wish this little project had come out before the 15th as I would have picked up that favor box. I love citrus and have several trees in my backyard and have to adapt this idea for when I give away juice and my orange cookies.

Julia Aston

What a great gift for teacher! love the summery colors and cute images!

Debbie Olson

Betsy, girl, you are the ROCKING-EST! (Is that a word?) :-)


Another brilliant Creation by Betsy.

Holly Saveur

SOOOO CUTE and FUN..LOVE this..SUPER Betsy!!


Absolutely super. What a stunning bright and cheerful.


I always appreciate the way you combine bits and pieces from different stamp sets to make a unique yet cohesive project. It amazes me how you remember or go through the sets to find the perfect images and sentiments. Truly fabulous project!!! The teachers will definitely feel the love and celebrate their much deserved time off this summer! Thank you so much for taking the time to post the pictures and instructions. You are one of a kind, Betsy Veldman!!!

Amy Rohl

As always, so fun to stop by your blog, Betsy. This ensemble rocks!


Wow Betsy, I am Surrey blown away by your ingenuity, creativity and raw talent...this set is beautiful!!


Darn auto correct, "Surrey" was supposed to be utterly! Apologies. :)


Betsy, your projects are always wonderful. The colors you chose are bright, summery and uplifting. Thank you for sharing your talent and this great gift idea!



Carrie :)

Betsy, you are amazingly talented! I am totally copying your idea and pairing it with some Orange Leaf gift cards for the teachers this year! Thanks for sharing!

jani b

cutest project i've ever seen!


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the tote bag with the goodies inside! Wonderfully bright & cheery gift idea! I might have to have that zipper die. Thanks for sharing.

Billie A

Love the colors and the projects are awesome. I love your work. The zip die is really cool and like the possibilities it gives. Wonderful.


Your Summer Goodies are Fabulous!
I'm sure the Teachers will love them!


Could this be any more amazing... um nope!
Love it!

Judy Hall

OMG! This is an A++! This retired teacher is just drooling. How thoughtful and unique. I want to own the stamps to make this project! Lucky teacher is getting a treat.


I'm tired just thinking about putting away ALL the supplies you used!
LOL! Half the time that's what gets clean up!
But you also killed it with ALL the stamp sets/supplies you used! So well done! I am totally in love with this idea!
Thanks for the great share!

Warmly (but not too hot since Summer isn't here yet! LOL!) ~Leah

Lynn Darda

As a teacher I gotta say I would love to receive this! It is such a bright, cheerful gift. The mini beach tote is too cute and how clever of you to write a note on a faux beach towel. Love that. I may thry to make a version of this for some of my teacher friends. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

Mendi Yoshikawa

Oh my goodness! What a cute idea! And somehow I completed missed that darling citrus image on that stamp set before. I think just just may have sold me on something else. ;)


SUCH a cute idea! I love it!!!


Great idea. I love giving little handmade boxes of handmade notecards. I use 5x7 pieces folded in half, simply stamped with "just a note" or "thank you". I make envelopes with the new WRMK envie maker and some M.Stewart magazines or patterned paper I'm over, and make a cute little lidded box out of cardstock. What teacher doesn't need thank you notes? :)

janet wilson

Wow, simply wonderful - your little ones teachers will be delighted :)


You are so clever with your themed projects, Betsy. And this one sets the perfect tone for an end-of-the-year gift - fun, relaxed and lighthearted. Don't you feel extra accomplished when you make something that works as an effective PTI post (You're sure to be selling even more stamps and dies for them!) AND is something your kids are excited to give and the teachers are happy to receive. Win, win, win. Enjoy your weekend.

Kathy Mc

What a sweet gift, Betsy! I'm sure the teachers will love this, especially the little tote bag full of goodies. : )

Helen F.

SWEET TREATS! Love these gift ideas, Betsy. :)

Shannon White

Wow! Awesome summer gift ideas Betsy!! Love these!! 8-)
