This was a tough one- There is another teacher who loves bright bold colors and purple. Both of which are out of my comfort zone. I looked for over 6 months for a purple color paper that would be bold and I pray to God that she likes this.
The paper is from B* Bunny. It is glittery and thick and hard to cut around tight corners but it came out pretty I thought. The kids gave it thumbs up when I told them who it was for.
The ribbon is SU Rich Razzleberry polka dot ribbone backward which matched the paper perfect with another Matha S Clear Rhinestone in the center.
I tied kiwi ribbon (retired SU) and more rich Razzleberry ribbon and put extra crystals in the center of the flowers on the top of the lid to add some extra bling.
This is a detail of the ribbon accent.
Now I just have to fill it with bold bright cards I hope she will like.
Think of your teachers and make something special for them- I found out that one of the kindergarten teachers I have met and thought was great got the pink slip and may not be coming back next year...sigh-
Of all the things our government should be spending money on, the schools should be our priority. The children we educate today will be all our futures. The earth we save today will be all our home. Don't you think?
My two cents.
