Thank You Teacher

Hello Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today :)

A week ago we celebrated the Teacher’s Day in Poland. My mom was a teacher, her sister was a teacher and I also used to teach before the kids were born. I loved the job, but also know how difficult and sometimes unrewarding it can be. Therefore I always appreciate teacher’s work and created this Thank You Teacher exploding box with real pleasure:

mdizab0I placed a delicate flower composition on the top:

mdizab1Removing the top will make the box “explode” and reveal its contents :)

mdizab2The walls feature various “thank you for-s”, e.g. for patience, wisdom, hard work etc.:

mdizab3mdizab4And in the centre I put a mini book with a quotation that reads: “The true Teacher is the one remembered throughout life. And excellent Teacher inspires.”

mdizab5Here’s how I made the book: I wrapped a piece of chipboard with paper, added some smaller “pages” folding and curling the top one with the quotation and tied a piece of baker’s twine with a feather charm:

mdizab6A little trick: to make the book look “standing”, I propped it on a mini roll of paper :)

mdizab7I hope the teacher who received the box like it and felt truly appreciated!

Supplies:

Maja Design papers: Coffe in the Arbour. Other: die: Prima; butterflies: UHK Gallery; stamp: Lemonade; baker’s twine: Dovecraft; charm, flowers: from my stash.

Have a nice day and see you soon! :)
