Here's another cute little gift that I made for my son's teacher. It has glue, emery boards, pens, and a candy bar in it. Simple but I thought she might be able to use it to hold pens or pencils in her class once she empties it. This little bear is from My Scrapchick as part of a Valentine's set but I thought he was perfect for this! I looked for the set on their site so you could go see, but.... I couldn't find it now but I'm sure it came from them.... maybe it's been discontinued?
