Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Today's post is for the teachers in my life.   Teacher Appreciation Day is coming up and I came up with some ideas that I wanted to share.

Typeset and Victory paper packs

Typeset Paper

I used two different Close to My Heart paper packs for these projects:  Typeset and Superhero.  Of course I also used our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge -- I feel like I'm cheating on it if I don't use it on a project!  

Art Philosophy images:
p. 21, A1, < Circle1 >, 1 1/2"
p. 31, B1, < Circle2 >, 1 3/4", 2"
p. 64, E4, < Rctngle3 >,  2 1/4" x 4 1/2", 2 3/4" x 5"  (using Fit to Length button)

I used an RSVP pen because you can unscrew the top and insert paper inside.  I cut that paper at 3/4" x 3 1/4".

The paw print stamp is called "Solid Paw Print" which is a stamp that I picked up at Hobby Lobby a while ago.

I used 6 x 6 page protectors to hold the pad of paper in the first picture.  I cut off the edge that had the holes in it.

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Oh WOW! I love these! I may have to 'lift' this idea for my daughter's preschool teachers!

  2. As a teacher myself I would love to receive a set like you have created. Very nice! I am now a followe and I would love to win the Art Philosophy stamp set. Thanks for the chance to win.
