It’s hard not to talk about the end of the school year when it starts coming into view. This afternoon, as I tried to ignore my study hall’s heated discussion about how scary I Am Legend was and block out 4th graders playing recorders, I was straining to see that light at the end of the tunnel. It works out nicely for the sanity of myself and my fellow teachers that this week is Teacher Appreciation Week and our small, private school is full of moms with the time and energy to do nice things for us when deemed appropriate. To honor this particular occasion, we all found of these cute creations waiting for us in our boxes a few mornings ago.
That box-topper is too cute! Upon examination, it seems that it’s made of two pieces of paper interlocked with each other and creased at intervals: the bottom piece is light carderstock and slightly larger than the top piece, which seems to be some kind of heavy-weight velum material. Love it. My sister is getting married this coming winter, so I think I’ll file it away in my maid-of-honor file of helpful ideas.
(Inside the package was a box of TicTacs with a note that said “you’re worth a mint to us”, but was almost besides the point given how enamoured I was with the box.)
