Teacher's aid--graduation gifts

so, yesterday I worked on gifts for youngest DS teacher's aids (there are 3!)  They are really simple but I really like how they turned out.  I printed the pictures at home at 2 x 2 size, and then cut tags with my cricut.  The mattes that the pictures were on are also cut from the cricut.  One of the best parts!  I used up ALL of an old kit I had.  Because there were only 14 kids in his class I was able to use 8 sheets of Pattern paper.  Once the tags were cut, I mounted the
 pictures on them and then glued them together back to back--it made them more sturdy---I then stamped their names on scraps.  The cool thing I took from the project for the teacher the things that each of the kids liked and wrote them in.
For privacy sake I only am showing the pages I did of my son...
I REALLY enjoyed the process even though it took me a while.  I came up with various ideas in my mind when I make more of these!
This is one of the gift bags that I made for the teacher's gifts:
 again the paper are from scraps, and the thanks was cut with my cricut.
I got a graduation announcement from one of my 'old' Young Women (I used to work in my church's youth group--it's called Young Women)  I made her this journal:
This FABULOUS paper is DCWV!  Couldn't believe the stack when I saw it.  The lined paper I figured out how to do and print on 6 x6 paper.  (I'm telling you MACS ROCK!!--this one sure is making things so much easier!)  The big K is from Basic Grey, Ribbon is fancy pants I think..the letters are Scrap Works.  I've gotta run for now, sorry I've been a bad blogger.  I've been busy with end of the year stuff for my kiddos and making stuff!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
