With teacher appreciation week just around the corner, and the end of a school year approaching, I thought I would share the teacher gifts that I made for my sons' teachers last year.
These were altered clipboards and I made "clipboard" cards to match using the Cricut Expression 2. I designed each card on the Gypsy so that I could cut out multiple pieces using the various colors, as well as weld my card pieces together. I made the little boys hair match each one of my sons' hair.
I also made a post it note holder for the bottom and placed in a matching gel pen that I bought from staples.
Here is a close up of the card itself. Inside, I used card stock that appeared to look like notebook paper. I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder to write A+ teacher and the Thank you.
I place the "notebook" paper under the "clip" on the clipboard. I then added a gift card to suit each teacher and placed it under the clip as well.
I think they turned out so cute that I might just try doing this again for this year's teachers. My oldest son has a male teacher that loves sports. That should be easy. I am thinking a Steeler's themed clipboard with a gift card for the Pirates? I did wrap each finished clipboard in clear gift bags, but I am not sure why I didn't take pictures.
