Thanks for offering a template without telling us we had to pay for it. I know you don't get payed enough as a teacher, that's your problem. Don't put that on us by making us buy templates. I don't care if you made it yourself.

Hi, Not Happy! I'm sorry you're so sad! I'm actually not a teacher and the template is free, so good news, right?! You can enter your email in the form at the end of the post to have the link sent to you. The ebook is also available for purchase if you want all of the craft templates and directions.
