Our family has a tradition of making a meal for the children’s teachers at the end of the school year.  We started this when Isabel was in first grade.  This year, we have three girls in elementary school so we have three meals to prepare.  We make a menu for the teachers and ask them to select an appetizer, entree, and dessert as well as the day they would like their meal to be served.  I also like to come up with a fun and creative way to present the menu.
This year, I found this fun Date Night Kit on SplitCoast Stampers that I thought would be fun to make.  I opted to change it up a bit, replacing the tickets and gift cards with notes from the kids and the CD was replaced with the menu.

Supplies for these, all items noted with an (*) are on the Last Chance List:

  • Designer Series Papers:  Bella Bleu*, Cottage Wall*, and Travel Journal
  • Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Bordering Blue*, Orchid Opulence*, Kraft, Bashful Blue and Night of Navy
  • Stamp Sets:  Viola* and Viola to Go*
  • Inks:  Stazon, Versamark
  • Accessories: Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Baja Breeze Ribbon*, and Old Olive Satin Ribbon
  • Tools:  Snail, Sticky Strip, 1 3/8 circle punch, My Digital Studio (to create the menu)
Since the SplitCoast Directions are so detailed, I will not repeat them here; I’ll just share photos!  Also, I will add that the teachers LOVE this idea and other teachers are totally envious.  We do this instead of other gifts because we love to give the gift of time.  At the end of the year, teachers have so much to do and a meal gives them the gift of time because it is one last thing for them to do.  You should definitely consider doing this for your child’s teacher.
God Bless and Happy Stampin!
