Hello Everyone! Welcome to the Back to School Blog Hop hosted by Jenny at Crazy about Cricut and the Thankful Thursday Design Team! Thankful Thursday is all about getting crafty with your kiddos (or loved ones)!! If you are coming from the talented Cheryl at Cards by CG then you are heading in the right direction! If not, stop by Crazy about Cricut to start from the beginning!

I have a very simple Back to School project to share with you today since this week has been so hectic with our own Back to School fun.  I like to make teacher gifts (I'll share classroom teacher gifties next week), but I also like to include the specials teachers (art, gym, library, music) when we are making them. 

This year we made them a little pocket with a few pens because what teacher doesn't need a few extra pens!
I used a scrap of 2.75" x 11" paper and folded it at 4.75".

I layered on some pattern paper, glued the edges with Glue Lines then added a little tag using a My Creative Time sentiment.   Simple but cuter than just handing the teachers a few pens!
 Thanks for hopping by today!  Your next stop on our Back to School Blog hop is the crafty

Great idea; I am always trying to come up with something a little different for the teachers that is practical. I know they can only use so many "#1 Teacher" or items like these so I go outside the box. Thank you for sharing.
