End of the Year goodies

It is that time again.  the end of the school year, which around here means lots of goodies to make.  This year I had two teachers and an aide to make presents for as well as a class of graduating preschoolers and some future 3rd graders.  I made explosion boxes for the two teachers.  Otherwise known as a scrapbook in a box, these are always popular with the teachers at my son's school and since my daughter's teacher is a good friend, I decided to make one for her to.  I did not use any Cricut on these and I can't remember where I got the instructions as I have been making these for three years, but google it and you are sure to find plenty of info. 

I also made goodie bags for all the students.  I designed these on my Gypsy with the Storybook cartridge for the base shape and Locker Talk for the grad cap and george and Basic Shapes for the Stars.  All the paper was from my stash and is a random assortment.  I made 16 of the grad ones and 20 of the stars.

And for the aide in my daughter's class I made this post it note holder with her name on it.  Paper here is Cosmo Cricket
