Back to School Teacher Gift by Laura C
It's back to school time! I always have mixed emotions, but one thing I love to do is give the
teacher(s) a little "welcome back" gift. I think it's a great way to start off the year! This
project was made using an inexpensive (less than $3!!) supply set with paper clips, rubber bands, push pins.
I just dressed it up with paper and ribbons from my stash!! Of course, you would "size" this project to the containers you find, but I used layers of red and black cardstock, and some school ribbon (any ribbon would work!). For the top, I used Spellbinders dies to cut and layer circles for the top, and I embossed the top circle with the Cuttlebug A2 swiss dot folder to add texture. I used sticker letter for the word "supplies", but you Cricut users could do that as well! The "topper" is made using one of the heavy metal clips. I traced and cut the apple out of AC glitter paper (rouge and cricket) and a second apple in black cardstock. I used score tape to attach the apple to each side of the clip. The cardstock "chalkboard" slips in between the clip. It can be used as a note holder during the year!
It's always great to let the teacher know you appreciate them, and a simple, inexpensive, but heartfelt gift, can
really start the year off right!
