Teacher Survival Kit

This Teacher Survival Kit is made using the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge along with the My Acrylix Art Philosophy Tags stamp set.  To cut the fry box, set your dimensions at 9".  I used our new cardstock weight Background and Texture (B&T) duos along with the Milepost Shapes and bitty brads to embellish it.  Below is a list of the contents as well as the prayer that is included.  The prayer is mounted as an easel card for the teacher's desk. 

Teacher Survival Kit
A toothpick to help you pick out
 the good qualities in everyone
A Crayon to colour your days bright
A rubber band to remind you to be flexible
Tissues to dry tears—whether they’re theirs or yours
A Band-Aid to mend hurt feelings
A shiny penny to remind you every student shines
in their own unique way
A pack of Starburst for those days when
you need an extra burst of energy
Some Smarties for helping make
each student smarter
Wiggly Eyes for those days you need
eyes in the back of your head
A prayer for you to say at the start of every day

Lord, enable me to teach with
for I help to shape the mind.
Equip me to teach with
for I help to shape the conscience.
Encourage me to teach with
for I help to shape the future.
Empower me to teach with
for I help to shape the world.
