Student Birthdays

I have been working hard on my student birthday gifts for the year.  I will be the first to admit that I have slacked in the past on birthdays but that is about to change!  The projects you see here were in the works for several years.  Thanks to my broken foot, I actually had time to sit down and make everything :)

The first thing I had to make were birthday cards.  They are small (3X3) and they were pretty quick to put together.  I made some last year and my students went crazy over them.  I noticed that my kids kind of took them apart by accident because they had some dimension and kids can't help but to mess with dimensional things.  Here are the new cards:
All items on this card are from SU!  They were quick and easy but still cute.  I'm thinking these flowers are going to come off pretty easily but the kids can glue them back on.

Birthday Buttons/Pins
This is something that I've been thinking about for a few years.  They were made possible thanks to my new SU! Rosettes Die.  They ended up so cute!! The inside stamps are from My Creative Time.  These rosettes were SO easy to put together.  No scoring, measuring or cutting.  Love this die! Now I have to find pins that I can glue to the backs.  I hope my kids like these!

One of my past projects was this SU! Blossom Box.  I wanted to make one for each child but I didn't know what I wanted to put inside.  Maybe some candy??  Well these buttons ended up fitting perfectly inside this box! I might throw in some candies too.

Total Package
So this is what they are going to get for their birthday.  I am definitely going to have to do this for my own kids, once I have kids that is :)  My goal is for my students to feel special and happy to be at school on their birthday.

Supplies Used:
Stampin' Up Dies: Blossom Box, Rosette Die
Paper: Stampin' Up
Stamps: Stampin' Up and My Creative Time
