Summer Beach Tote for Teachers

I used to work in the office of a junior high school back when I was in college, and if there is one thing I learned, it is that teacher's are counting down the last few days of school until summer just like the kids are. 
Hi, Everyone! Jana Eubank here today with a fun thank you gift for your child's teacher.
I'm pretty sure teachers are tired of seeing pencils, crayons, and notebook paper by the time May rolls around … and so for my teacher gift idea, I decided to create a Happy Summer Beach Tote using the Amy Tangerine Sunshine & Good Times collection.

I used an electronic die cutting machine to cut out the pattern for the tote using the Flutter By paper for the body of the bag and the Let's Hug paper for the blue accents. 
Inside the bag, I am going to tuck a cute pair of flip flops, a pair of sunglasses, a bottle of sunscreen, and a gift card to a bookstore, so that my child's favorite teacher can kick back at the pool with a good book or magazine. A cute beach towel would be a fun addition, too!

The Sunshine & Good Times tassel looks so CUTE hanging from the handle! I added the banana Inflated Ephemera for a tropical vibe. I will also add this cute "Have a Great Summer" tag I created using the 6×6 paper pad, washi tape, and gold glittered Thickers.

My daughter is writing a note of thanks to her teacher using this cute "Thank You" card from the Sunshine & Good Times Card Kit. We added a few Mini Icon Puffy Stickers to the front and then used the included confetti acetate sheet behind the sentiment window. I love that even the envelopes are cute complete with decorative seals!
