Inspiration Friday - Inspired by School

For many, the school year is winding down, and with that our minds turn towards thanking teachers and celebrating graduates. 

After a long year of teaching 'em and reaching 'em, we crafters love to give back to those who work so hard to give our children an education. If you're looking for ideas of how to thank the teachers in your kids' lives, we've got some inspiration for you! And those graduates deserve something special, too. So here's to celebrating the successes of another school year and the future ahead!

I searched the web for a variety of images pertaining to the end of the school year, and here is a look at a few of my favorite finds:

What a joy it is! For the teachers, students, and graduates alike, completing another year is a definite cause for celebration! And as a former teacher, I remember it with much happiness!

My Favorite Things has some great products to make your end of the school year paper crafts spectacular. Let's take a look at some awesome projects that will inspire you to create with the teacher and graduate in mind!

Get your child's teacher ready for the coming school year with this cute gift created by Jodi. The pencils are situated around a clean aluminum can and can be used as a vase or a pencil holder. The Straight to the Point stamp set and Die-namics is perfect for teacher thank yous. You can see more of how she created this project HERE

Male teachers deserve our thanks as well, and Yoonsun's design would be great for the science or math teacher. Let him know how awesome he is with the Get Down to Business stamp set.
