Teacher Appreciation Handmade Gift Tags

It's the last week of school for my kids and I always love to show appreciation to our kids' teachers with gifts. Teacher Appreciation Week was the first week or May and we had a small gift for each teacher every day. Here are a couple of the gifts we gave them:

Reusable water bottle with lemonade packets. The back of the tag said "Your quench my thirst for knowledge!"

Heavy duty magnet clips with rocket (our school mascot) foam craft kit. I did two layers for each tag so the stars would show up with the white tag behind it. The back of the tag said: "You're Out of the this World AMAZING!"

I didn't take a picture of our gift for the last day of school. It's a beach towel and a bottle of sunscreen with a gift tag (with the Sunburst die cut) that says "Have a COOL summer!" These gifts seem like such small gestures, but I hope they can help convey our love and appreciation for all that they've done for our students throughout the year!

As Seen on TV: Graduation Diorama Card for Class of 2016

I pre-taped a Creative Corner segment for ciLiving that is going to air today. Central Illinois fans, be sure to tune in and watch it live between 4-5 pm on WCIA today. I'll update this post with the link to the video once it's posted.

I had so much fun creating diorama cards. It's really easy once you know how to cut and score the cardstock. One of my favorite cards was this graduation card. I think any graduate would love these blingy gold number. This is definitely a card you can keep on display throughout the graduation open house season!

The question I get asked the most when I share diorama cards like this is "where do you write?" You can write on the inside of the back side of the diorama card. But if you have a lot to say, you may consider adding a small card to the back of the diorama. This will also act as an easel and help keep the card upright. I used the Pocketful of Cheer stamps from the March 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit to decorate the mini card on the back. The finished card size is 3" x 3-3/4".
In case you missed it, check out my video tutorial to learn how to make the diorama card and see more samples of this fun technique!


Stampin' Up! Shopping List: Bravo stamp set, Basic Black ink pad, March 2016 Paper Pumpkin stamp set, Whisper White cardstock, Gold Glimmer Paper, Large Number Framelits, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch
