Teacher gifts - Personalized Bell Ornaments

Between the two kids still in school, I needed fifteen teacher/helper gifts. FIFTEEN!? Time to figure out a fast sewing project. Ornaments are always a good choice.
Here are the results from the first round of sewing. I pulled out all of my Christmas/Winter fabric scraps and grouped them. I let the kids choose which combo best suited each teacher. Then, they wrote a personalized message on the backing of each bell.
I want the kids to be part of the gift giving process, especially for people who they know better than I do, and this was a great way to make it personal and special for each recipient.

To make these, I reduced the size of the bell, and used the same process as my Bell Door Hanger. Five down, ten to go.The template for both bells can be found here.
