What to do for the teachers?????

So this year, I decided to make all of Morgan's teachers gifts.  She's in the fifth grade and she has several teachers.  When I was in the fifth grade I had my classroom teacher, music teacher and PE teacher.  She has those three plus a computer lab teacher, title 1 reading teacher, math teacher and probably a para or two that I am forgetting about.  Are kids just more misbehaved these days that there needs to be that many people watching over them or is this turning out more educated children?  I have yet to figure that out.  I guess it is a good thing because they all seem to love the kids and that's what's important.  I came up with these card books thinking I was going to use up a lot of paper that I have but in reality, it really only used up three pieces of cards tock and three pieces of coordinating patterned paper.  Needless to say, I did not make a dent or even a dimple in my enormous stash of patterned paper.  I used the Wishblade and created the A2 sized envelope to cut out.  Most of the rest was done by hand.  It is a variety of cards such as Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon, Thinking of You, Congrats and a few blank ones for a total of eight cards.  Off to mass produce these for the army of educators!

Keep Smiling!  =)
