Reverse Confetti Spring Fling Blog Hop

Hi, 'Fetti Fans!
Spring is in the air and Reverse Confetti is celebrating with a 
Spring Fling Blog Hop.

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog and 
you should have made it here from the incredibly talented Sarah Gough's blog
It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. 

When I think of spring, I think of Teacher Appreciation
and honour the people who work with my children.
I like to bring treats (i.e. Butter Crunch) to their teachers 
when we go for parent-teacher conferences.

Here are the tags I made for the treats:

I diecut the Folded Tag Confetti Cuts from some white cardstock and 
stamped on it in aqua mist ink, using Class Act.

I added the sentiment in onyx black and the A+ in pure poppy (also from Class Act.)

The tags open up and that's where my kids wrote notes to their teachers.

Short and sweet!
And some of them got a little "punny":
