Today I am showcasing some teacher gifts that I made.  Some of these gifts were made for my friend's to give their kid's teachers.
The first gift is an 8x8 tile with vinyl on it. 
I made these books for my friend's twins.  She provided me the photos and I used school themed papers.  I adhered the papers to chipboard and used my Bind-it-All to bind the books.   HERE is a tutorial about making mini books with the Bind-it-All.
I had the twins write their names for me and I put the photo on my Silhouette program and traced it.  I cut it out in vinyl and added it to the inside cover. HERE is a how I got the name in vinyl.
I printed this saying on laminated burlap and framed it.  You can find a tutorial HERE
My son's teacher is a runner.  I got her a very nice water bottle from Under Armour.  I put a K on one side.... 
and Runalicious on the other.  Red is her favorite color! 
For the Husker fan, I decorated a wine glass and a water bottle.

Which gift do you like best?

Up next is JENNY

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way:
Be Sure to Come back tomorrow to see what the rest of Santa's Elves created for Day 2!!!
