Religious Education Teacher Gifts

This year for my kids' religious education teachers I thought I would make coasters out of tiles. Since I didn't have pictures from each lady I thought it would be nice to use some Christmas quotations on each. Found these saying from a Google search, printed them out on tissue paper, then used the directions from SplitCoast Stamper. So easy to make, and (if I do say so myself!) they turned out pretty nice. Each teacher received this same set. Check out some of my other coasters that I created.

In case the print is too small to read, this is what is on each one -

For to us a child is born
to us a son is given,
and the government will be
on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful counselor, Mighty
Everlasting Father, Prince of
Isa 9:6

The best of all gifts around
any Christmas tree: the
presence of a happy family
all wrapped up in each other.
Burton Hillis

Christmas waves a magic
wand over this world, and
behold, everything is
softer and more beautiful.
Norman Vincent Peale

There's nothing sadder
in this world than to
awake Christmas
morning and not be
a child.
Erma Bombeck

I found these great gift boxes at the Dollar Tree - I love that store! My 4 coasters fit perfectly in each one. There was plenty of room for at least 6, but I only made 4. The presentation was great! I loved the way they looked.
This is how nicely the coasters in in the box. It is like they were made for each other!! I'll have to go back and get a few more.

Thanks for looking. And, have a great holiday.
