Teacher Appreciation Week is next week! Here is the gift we made for my boys’ teachers, complete with Starbucks gift cards and their sweet little faces.

We are also excited to introduce a new service we’ve been working on for quite some time now. Places for Faces is an application that helps you to personalize any party with faces! Using Places for Faces, you can upload an image of yourself or a friend and add a variety of stickers that match the occasion such as birthday hats, bow ties, tiaras, veils, and so much more. You then choose from a range of templates such as cupcake toppers and thank you notes that save directly to your computer to print as many times as you like. Here is the birthday party that inspired Places for Faces one year ago!

We are thrilled to be in the final stages of preparation and cannot WAIT to launch Places for Faces! If you are interested in being one of the first to try the application, add your email to the subscription list at the bottom of this post. We can’t wait to share it with you!

For this project, we uploaded the boys’ pictures to Places for Faces and added the yellow flower sticker. We are constantly finding more and more ways to use Places for Faces, especially when we’ve got these cute little mugs to work with!

Thank You For Helping Me Grow | Free Printable by Vicky Barone

Directions:
1. Have your child help paint the terracotta pot. Let dry completely.
2. Add the Styrofoam ball to the bottom of the pot (this is to help the picks to stay where you want them).
3. Cover the Styrofoam with moss.
4. Attach the thank you note, face, gift card, or anything else you’d like to add to the plastic picks using tape or glue.
5. Insert gift card and thank you note into the pot, stabilizing it within the foam ball.
