Gorgeous, you did a great job. I want to do one of these for my DD's teacher... but I have never done one so I'm a little nervous. Could you tell me how you get the paper to look so good around the handles. Also would you send me the phrase you have on the lid. Thanx

I am so glad you all like it. I hope the teachers like them. Here is the poem I used.
Survival Kit For My Favorite Teacher
Crayons to color your day bright
Candle for when you are up late grading papers
Hugs and Kisses for when you need a hug
Rubberbands to remind you to be flexible
Eraser to remind you everyone makes mistakes and they can be erased
Lifesaver Candy because you are a lifesaver to many of your students
Puzzle Piece because without you the class wouldn’t be complete
Paperclips to hold it all together
Mounds Bar for the mounds of confidence you give your students
Shiny Penny to remind you that each will shine in their own special way
Ear Plugs for when you just can’t take anymore
Starburst to give you a “burst” of energy when you need it
Mints because you are worth a “mint” to your students
Tissues to wipe away the tears . . . yours or theirs
Gum to help your class “stick” together
Bandaids to help fix any hurt feelings. . . and
Bubble Bath to take you away to a quiet place that is well deserved
