Last minute teacher gifts

What does one do when one realizes it's the night before the last day of school and nothing has been done about teacher gifts?? Gift cards from Cincinnati's finest, Graeter's ice cream, to the rescue! And when one remembers the awesome ice cream cone creations made with punches, it's a fabulous rescue!

Graeter's, for those of you who haven't had the pleasure to indulge, is known for their Raspberry Chip ice cream. To recreate this notoriously wonderful flavor, I used some Rich Razzleberry cardstock, punched out the scoop of ice cream with the Build a Cupcake punch, stamped some chocolate chips with the retired Itty Bitty Backgrounds, and fashioned a cone with a star punch trimmed and run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. Looks good enough to eat! Here's a close-up of the ice cream cone:
