Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Hello Everyone!

How are you? We finally made it to Friday! I hope you have all had a great week. Well, I have a lot to share with you today, so let's get started shall we?!

This week is teacher appreciation week and I have one last child in elementary school, so I decided to  do something a little more special. Now, it's not that I'm not appreciative of the teachers for my high schooler and my middle schooler; but once there is more than one teacher, it's just a little different.

Ok, so the first thing I made was this super cute note pad cover. Now, I originally had plans to make a cover for a 3x5 pad because I usually like those better. However, I couldn't find any 3x 5 post it notes.   So instead I made one for a 4x6 pad.




To make this project:
  • Start with a piece of cardstock cut to 9 5/8 x 6 1/4
  • Score on the long side at 4 1/2, 4 7/8 and 5 1/4
  • Fold along the 4 1/2 score line
  • Fold the 4 7/8 line back on to the 4 1/2 line (basically, you're doing a mountain-valley fold) and then fold along the 5 1/4 line.
  • Open it up and put some strong adhesive along the back side of the 4 1/2 line (the first one you folder) and adhere it down to the inside of the back of the note holder.
  • At this point, you can come down a couple of inches along the 5 1/4 and make a couple of slits so you can have a pen holder. I opted not to include this on my project.
  • Then you can decorate the front however you choose. 
Moving right along to the next project. This gift card holder with a little drawer built in for 10 Hershey nuggets was just too adorable not to make. You can find the instructions for this fun project over at "Frenchie Stamps" 





Next, I made a fun and easy washi tape bookmark. I intend to make some more of these soon. The possibilities are endless!


Finally, I made this stand up post it note holder. This is another project I intend to make a few more of as well because, again...cute and easy! I got this tutorial from Lyssa over at Song of my Heart




Then I put it all in these cute little basket I found at Hobby Lobby and wrapped it up and we gave it to her.

Phew...that is all for me today. I hope you all have a great weekend! Don't forget to stop by on Sunday for Coffeehouse Sunday!
