If you are a mom of children under 12 and you don’t get a magazine subscription to Family Fun you are crazy!  This magazine put out by Disney is chock full of ideas for day trips, family vacations, crafts, cooking with kids, tip and tricks.  It is by far my favorite kid’s magazine.  In the May 2010 issue they had an adorable idea for a teacher’s gift.  It was finger stamped stationary.

I also made some of these gorgeous flowers I featured in my last LOVES Links post.  Find the tutorial here.DSC05605There is a secret message on the back. Cuuuute!DSC05708

I tied them with some ribbon and attached the flower in the middle.


Have you started making your children’s teacher gifts yet?  I would love to have some more ideas to pack away for a later day.  What is your favorite teacher gift?  Teachers out there, what do you love to receive as a gift from a child?
