As many of you know, and maybe many of you don’t know, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. I’m sure we are all grateful for our children’s teachers everyday, but this is a special time to show it. This year I decided to put together a little gift for each of my daughters teachers.
I’ve had several CD tins laying around for awhile, so I wanted to use them somehow. I also loved the bright primary colors in Audrey Neal’s Everyday Celebrations kit, and thought they would be perfect for a teacher gift.
I started by creating a couple mini layouts for the front and back of the tin. I found a cute poem about teachers to put on the back, and I put a picture of my daughter with her teacher on the front. (I used mod-podge to adhere the layouts to the tin.) Then I designed and printed some simple little notecards using Audrey’s Everyday Celebrations kit and Spencer’s Sketchy Elements kit to put inside. I wrapped it all up with a ribbon and Voila!… a simple gift to show your teachers how much you appreciate them!
If you don’t already have a gift idea for your teachers, browse through the store. There are all sorts of fun boxes/bags that you can simply print out and assemble. Fill them with a treat and you’re done! Even just a card would make your teacher feel appreciated (and we’d love to see your creations in the gallery!)
