Teachers Gifts Galore

Okay, so remember I said I had to make 14 teachers gifts?  Well at 1:00 this morning I FINALLY finished!  Not to mention  I had to wake up at 5 this morning to make some Spanish Rice for my daughters class party!  I am wiped out but oh well, since I'm on a roll I'll be doing some vacuuming and I'll shampoo my carpets too.  All this crafting left me so little time to get things done around my house.
  
Okay, now on to the project.
This is not a good picture cause it was in the wee hours and the lighting was so bad but this was made using the "Pack-A-Picnic" template from Papertrey Ink.  I made a variety of different colors and styles but to tell you the truth I was in no mood to have a "photo session" ! LOL!
Here are the contents inside.  I included General Foods International coffee and some chocolate dipped Biscotti.

Here are some cookies that were wrapped in DP.  Just something really simple and fast!  I also made some desktop post-it holders but I wrapped it before taking pictures.  I was so bummed but was in no mood to have to rewrap them again just for a picture.  My brain must have fallen asleep while my body kept going!   Well I'm glad it's over now I can relax and just craft for the joy of it (after I clean the house!).
Okay, I'm off to do some housework!  TFL have a beautiful day!

Chalsie, you have again done a fantabulous job on these 14 gifts you had to make! They are beautiful, and my gosh, all the contents, then cooking Spanish rice, you certainly can outrun the Ever Ready battery guy! I love the DPs you used for these projects. The recipients are so fortunate to receive something created by you. Work work is so professional and your ideas abundant! Cami
