Post It Notes and Butterflies

This would be one of the sweetest back to school gift ever for a teacher.  It's so simple too!  You could easily make a ton of them! It all started with the clothes pins.  I found these cute, colored clothes pins at the container store and bought two packages (they were $4 for 12-come on!).  I cut out some butterflies with my Butterfly framelits and some cardstock and vellum.  Super easy and a glue dot is all you need to assemble it all!!  I wanted a cute gift for inside the bag, so I covered a stack of post it notes in some cardstock, added a fun greeting and a pen and boom!  Simple gifts in almost no time!  The longest part was die cutting the butterflies but you could also use punches, and it doesn't even have to be a butterfly!  You could use flowers, tie in the school colors and mascots or even print off a sheet of the school logo and punch them out.  Endless possibilities for quick and easy gifts!  PS-in addition to teachers, these would make great gifts for co-workers, receptionists, friends, kids (my daughter loves a good stack of post its!).

Thanks for looking, see you soon!
