This week is the school book fair and Ryan and I went to choose some books for his new teacher. It was a treat I received from thoughtful parents in my teaching days, so I suppose I want to reciprocate now that I’m on the parent end. Plus, I can’t resist browsing children’s literature–one of those things that makes me giddy! So glad my kids feel the same way.

To make the books a little more special we added some pretty packaging. Dollar store kraft paper makes some of the best wrapping paper.

Embellished the package with some simple twine “ribbon”, a scrap of an old dictionary page glued to a library pocket envelope, and a note written on a library index card (purchased at a school supply store).

Topped it off with a stack of bookplates (free printables here).

All ready for a special morning delivery!

And now, I’m wondering, what are your favorite teacher gift ideas? Teacher appreciation week is approaching, and one must be versed in these celebrations! 😉

    Hi Pam! When you commented to me on the Indie Biz chat I had to pop over here and take a look at your blog. It is adorable! Your photos are wonderful and your family is beautiful. It is so nice to meet you! I would love your constructive criticism. :)
