Good Bye and Good Luck Box Card

School is out for the summer, hurray!  I'm suspicious that I am as excited as any of my students are...  We had a great school year but summer is always lovely.  I have a day or two of special ed. paperwork to complete, cleaning up files, making sure my i's are dotted and my t's are crossed.  This school district will be monitored by the state for compliance in September and I am planning to pass, or die trying.  Always tricky!

Anyway, in spite of that, I have been having fun with Box Cards.  They fascinate me, so many different ways to decorate them.  I needed a good-bye card from the staff in my building to a teacher who is leaving the district and this is what I came up with:

As you might guess, the person leaving is an FCS (Home Ec.) teacher, hence the cookies, rolling pin, and other kitchen goodies.  She loved the card.    Here's a picture of the outside where the rest of us signed:

I was impressed with the amount of room to sign, more than I had expected.  Often on a "normal" card we have to squash our comments together, so this is nice.  I think it will make a nice momento also, if she wants to keep it.

Thank you for looking.  It's more fun when I can share my creations.

Happy Summer!

  1. Wow wow nailed it for the Home Ec. teacher. With school nearing and as much as I loved my school, I am thrilled that I'm not teaching. I still love to sub which allows me to chose my days and classes....something not heard of when I was teaching full-time..wouldn't that be awesome!


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate hearing from you!
