Teacher holiday appreciation gifts

Good morning everyone!!!  I am actually writing this up on Tuesday night.  My oldest usually goes to kindergarten in the afternoon which leaves me a bit of time to post in the morning.  Well, tomorrow is a minimum day for the school since it is the last day before holiday break.  That means I have to have my son at school before 8am.  Yeah me!!!  I am so excited!!!  Actually I am not.  Trying to get my boys ready in time to get my oldest to school in the afternoon is like pulling teeth. 
Anyway, since tomorrow is the last day I wanted to do something nice for his teacher since she has been great with my son and he just adores her and loves going to school.  To keep you guys in suspense and to give you some eye candy for more than one day I am going to post one project at a time.
Today I am showing you a gift box that I pretty much copied from Nichole Heady.  I am going to admit that a few of, well, all of the projects that I made I got ideas from other people and almost copied completely.  I will be sure to give credit where credit is due though.  Today it is Nichole.

The trees were watercolored green because I didn't have a solid tree stamp.  I used some stickles on the snow and on the stars in the sky.  I have never really been good about doing up scenes but after looking at Nichole's I think this one turned out wonderfully.  Also, I used a "My Timeless Template" from PTI and Lauren Meader.
I can't think of anything else to add to this so I am going to close.  I hope you all are having a wonderful week.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

This turned out great! It is your own (you may have gotten the idea from Nichole) but it isn't cased. I am sure C's teacher will love it!

That is just beautiful! Dare I say I like it better than Nichole's? Great job!
