Butterflies, ribbon, flowers, buttons are perfect items to embellish a journal for your child's teacher..
Michaels and Hobby Lobby have great selections of items you can choose from. They also have journals. I bought this one for $1 at Michaels.
Using a glue gun, glue your selected treasures on the journal to make a personalized gift.
