Re-posting last years Teacher's Appreciation projects for some last minute ideas.....
Create a Critter digital cartridge, I had to go with it.
Here I’ve made a selection of Teacher gifts that anyone could give to
their teacher as a little token of their appreciation for what they do.
Just a little thank you.
This Apple box is created using the bottom of the cupcake box from the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge.
I cut the bottom once and then again a little bigger so it would slide
down over the bottom slightly for a top. This top piece has a strip of
pattern paper layered on cardstock going around it. It measures
approximately 1″ x 12″ and slides through the label with the Thank You
sentiment sticker. The stem is similar layered pattern paper and
cardstock, rolled and glued to the top.
Here I started out with the lipstick box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 Cartridge and
embellished it with familiar learning icons – the book worm, a book and
the apple. Inside the box are jumbo paper clips, embellished with the
apples, that can be used as book marks or just a means of clipping a
stack of papers together. The jumbo clips are sandwiched between the
shadow layer of the apple and the remainder. I first glued the clip
itself to the shadow piece with a strong liquid glue. Once dried, I took
a 3D glue dot and adhered the apple to the shadow layer. You can
certainly just glue the apple to the clip in the same manner as the
base, but I went for the quicker way and grabbed glue dots.
These are 3 x 3 post-it note pads that I’ve covered, allowing for a
mini gel pen to tag along with it. There are lots of directions online
for doing this, so you might want to do a search to find the one easiest
for you to follow. Rather than do the typical cut in the binding to
create the pen holder, I added a strip of cardstock, knowing it was
going to be hidden by pattern paper.
These are just little gifts, but it’s really not about the gift
itself, but more about letting the teachers know that what they do is
appreciated and to thank them.
