Teachers Day Gifts

Teachers Day Gifts 
 Hi friends, in India we celebrate Teachers Day on September 5th and every year I make it a point to make Teachers' Day gifts for my daughter's teachers. This year my daughter and I  made shaker Notepad Holders and matching Bookmarks.

Shaker Notepad Holders
Teachers Day Gifts
The Notepad Holders  have shaker elements in the cup and in the dome too and when you open the magnetic flap of the cup  it is sheer fun to hear the shaker elements jingle around!
Teachers Day Gifts
We made an assorted variety including a Chocolate Milkshake, Strawberry Sundae,Cappuccino,Raspberry Shake, Lemonade and hehe some exotic floral flavours too!
Teachers Day Gifts
My daughter has 11 teachers this year so we made a total of 11 Shaker Notepad Holders!
Teachers Day Gifts
This project is a fusion between two projects  whose Tutorials I had shared earlier : DIY Notepad Holder Tutorial  and Magnetic Shaker Bookmark.

Tag Punch Bookmarks
Today I got some super cool new punches  which were recently launched by Shalini under her brand Dress My Craft and I just couldn't resist playing with them!
Tag Punch Bookmarks
One of the punches is a Triple Tag Puch.It is a pretty huge and sturdy Punch with a lever mechanism and is a Layering Punch!
Tag Punch
It has slots to hold paper widths of 2.5, 2 and 1.5 inches so this makes layering a breeze!
Tag Punch Bookmarks
For example if you punch a strip of pattern paper  measuring 2  x 6 inches and and strip of card stock of 2.5 x 6 and 1/4 inch you get a perfect 1/4inch border when you layer them!

The Tag punch made layering a breeze and as it even punched the holes , I just had to set in the eyelets and loop a thread through  it make the bookmarks!
Teachers Day Gifts 
Here is an open notepad holder with it's matching bookmark

I played around with the borders  by  experimenting  with the measurements!
Teachers Day Gifts 
I have a couple of tag dies in my stash but  using the Tag Punch was liberating as there was no restriction on the length and  using a punch is in many ways faster than die cutting!
Teachers Day Gifts 
I was able to punch through ivory sheets and even 300g cardstock easily to create the bookmark bases!
Teachers Day Gifts 
The inside of the notepad holders is also decorated with matching papers. I recycled my daughter's old notebooks to create the little notepads.
Teachers Day Gifts 
It was fun creating matching stationary!

The set below created with Lemon Craft paper is one of my favourites!
