Male Teacher Appreciation Gift - Takeout box with paper Fortune Cookies

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges comes just in time for those of us with school aged kids - create a Teacher Appreciation project!  This year my youngest child has a male teacher who doesn't eat candy and already received a boat load of Starbucks cards for Christmas so I had to really put my thinking cap on to create a project I thought he'd like!

I know my son truly likes his teacher and has learned a lot this year so I wanted to tell him how fortunate we feel to have him for our last year in Elementary school.  I asked my son write six reasons he really likes his teacher on small strips of paper and I created paper fortune cookies and a decorated box to put them in.  I tested them out and to get the messages out you have to snap open the cookie just like a real one - very fun!
I think his teacher will get a kick out of this gift and be touched by how much he is truly appreciated by his student. Here is the same box decorated with a panda bear from the Create a Critter cartridge to show another example.  I like to make two projects at a time, one to use now and one to save for later!
I hope you'll join us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week and create a project for a teacher in your life or anyone who does something that deserves a bit of extra thanks!

Stay crafty my friends!

Thanks Okispice! His teacher will get this tomorrow (teacher appreciation is a whole week in our school with something done each day). I'm sure he will like it though!

This is super-clever, Paige! I love the look of your box, and that you filled it with fortune cookies! :) The panda is adorable!
