End of Year "Tea-riffic" Teacher Gifts

I finally finished the end of the year teacher gifts for my daughter’s preschool teachers. (I just found out that my son’s teacher doesn't like tea, so I need to come up with something else for her.)
The tea pot template came from Lauren Meader and can be found here. I bought the SVG files and cut them on my Cricut. They are a little tricky to put together but I think they turned out alright for my first attempt. I definitely need to make a few more to work out the kinks, but hopefully the teachers won’t notice the mistakes and sloppiness on these. LOL!
I am including a little tea pot cookie, a few tea bags, and a gift card to Starbucks. The idea is to give them something to relax after a crazy year teaching preschoolers.

I used CTMH’s That’s Amore paper for the first one and Veranda paper for the second one.
The paper roses are fun to make. We are going to be making some in my June Creative Club Class. Here is a link to a tutorial on how to make them.
Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted:
Papers: Veranda, That's Amore, Splendor (for leaves)

Ink: Chocolate
: Cocoa, Colonial White

Other: Sponge Dauber, Labels 1 Nestabilities, Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon
