This week marks the end of the school year for my son. So as any good (or overachieving, whatever) parent would, I decided to make end-of-the-year-thank-you-gifts for his teachers. It was hard to come up with a gift that I thought would be appreciated and used by 3 different women. But I was lucky enough to have bookmarked 2 Little Hooligans’ tutorial for making a ruffly checkbook cover. So that’s exactly what I made.
I love, love, love how they turned out! I had so much fun picking out fabric to go together and the ruffle really gives them the cute factor that puts them over the top!
Here’s some more pictures because they’re just too cute not to share ;)
Didn’t they come out soooo cute? I really ought to make one for myself! These were pretty easy to make (though it took me slightly longer than the 20 minutes it takes her ;). It’s a fun way to use up those fabric scraps and play with pairing up different colors/patterns. I will definitely make these again. And I really hope my son’s teachers love them, too! I figure that even if they don't carry a checkbook, these would be great for coupons, business cards, even cash.
What do you usually do as a “thank you” to your children’s teacher? Or do you do anything? What is the proper protocol?
