Back to School Teacher Gifts!

Hey All!!!
I am back, kinda. As most of you know I went in for surgery last week, well, it was supposed to be minor, but like everything else in my life, did not go as planned, and turned into major surgery again.
I am doing good, but recovery is painful so I am tad behind on my orders and projects!
I've been home almost a week now, and managed to get some back to school gifts done, as my grade school kids started this week!

This first one is for a 5th grade teacher. Lots of classroom supplies and some yummy treats for him too!!
I used bits and pieces of "ABC-123" from Scrapping Bug Designs to accent the bucket. They are mod podged onto the mats, then those were mod podged onto the bucket. (This bucket, btw, used to have ice cream in it! Totally upcycled it by removing the labels with acetone. Thank you, Pinterest!)
I made little packet holders for the water bottles and used a freebie from SVG Cuts for the lemon slice.

Here's one for the first grade class...... used a lunchbox from DC9

And the Kindergarten one, with my pretty girl holding it, of course!

Just some simple ideas for those Back to School gifts! Hope you liked!!

Happy Scrappin'
