It's a (gratitude) wrap!

My friend Dawnie asked me to try to think of something handmade for Christmas gifts for her sons' teachers. I thought about it for a while and I thought about Soulemama's gratitude wrap. I think it came to me because Dawnie loves stationary and office supplies. I asked her if she liked the idea and she did!

So last night I made one for a dry run. It wasn't that hard-so we are going to have a sewing day soon and make a few.

This is funny because I had ordered my Secret Sister a personalized tablet, pen, sticky notes, and address labels a couple weeks ago and now I can give her this gratitude wrap with these inside.

Thanks, Dawnie-I have a lot of gratitude towards you, cause I never intended to make one of these!

It's a wrap!☺

I think it is beautiful!
Makes for a good Christmas card writing wrap too with the Christmas material.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it Holly!! And I know their teachers will too. I am thinking of so many people that would love this. Thank you for the inspiration. Can't wait for our sewing day on Saturday. It will be fun!! I am breaking out the Christmas music and making some homemade soup and goodies. Gratitude wraps here we come!!
