This will be a Christmas gift for my daughter's teacher. I've made them every year for about the last 4 years, although I can no longer remember where the idea came from, sorry. It is a decorated metal CD tin and I just added some matching DP along the top of the paper pad and a Joyful Bloom from Verve to pretty it up a little. The pen also has the same matching paper rolled up inside. The pad and pen go inside the tin and I always add a gift card as well.
This also for the Anni-VERVE-sary Release Challenge Anything But a Card. The layout on the tin is from VSAVS12C.

What a wonderful teachers gift - actually anyone would love it. If you had used red as your accent, I would make the best Alabama fan present as well. What a super combination. Thanks for adding where you get the items for the tin. What a great idea - TFS.
