Bookmarks: PTI May 2011 Blog Hop

I have been wanting to participate in a PTI Blog Hop for some time now, and I finally have a project that qualifies!!  As an Instructional Coach, one thing I like to do is come up with some small token of appreication for my teachers for their hard work and dedication to educating our students.  I usually make cards for my intermediate teachers around testing time.  But for the primary teachers, I wait until May to surprise them with a little something. I wasn't thrilled about my creation last year--but this year, I'm hoping they'll find this bookmark pretty and useful!


Teacher Appreciation!
This was the first bookmark I made, and I had intended for all of them to turn out like this one.  However, time and materials got the better of me as I needed to produce 26 bookmarks!  My son's girlfriend came over Sunday evening and together we stream-lined the process.  We decided that ribbon was a premium, so we only added ribbon through the eyelet.  As an appreciation for helping me, I let Abigail keep the original bookmark!!  Below are pictures of the finished bookmarks for 26 hard-working teachers!

Notice the bookmark center-front!  We have one male kindergarten teacher.
I couldn't see putting flowers on his bookmark!
