How Do You Thank Your Teachers?

Getting ready for the end of the school year means thanking those who have spent the year inspiring our little ones to learn.  Today Kate Nolan Denham is sharing a gift bag and card made with a variety Core’dinations Cardstock.
I decorated a simple kraft gift bag from Darice by creating a base designed to look similar to a chalk board.  The same base design was used for the thank you card.
The giant cardstock pencils on both the bag and card were scored, sanded and bent to give it the 3-D effect of a real pencil.
