I am back to my craft room this weekend after taking a week off going on vacation with my family. We enjoyed every moment together making memories. And today, I would like to share with you a Going Back To School gift idea for Teacher – design team project inspiration with The Cutting Cafe.
My oldest is going back to school this coming Monday, and I made a card set for her new 2nd grade teacher. I use the digital cutting and sentiment printable files: Apple Shaped Card Template – Cutting File, Apple Treat Cup Card Templates – Cutting Files, and Pencil Shaped Card Template – Cutting File.
To make the Apple Shaped card is very easy. In this Apple Shaped Card Template – Cutting File there are digital cutting files and also printable template. This time, I cut out the Apple Shaped card with the template printable. I still have some the Paper Studio – Holiday Heavy Weight cardstock combo and the red and green are perfect for the apple and leaf. I used kraft cardstock for the stem. I after they all cut out, I put them together with glue pen. Then, I added some faux hand-stitches with Uni-Ball Gell Pen. Then I added the sentiment I printed out from the Apple Treat Cup Card Templates – Cutting Files. Inside of the card, I cut out the apple shape out of printer paper and glued it on for us to write a note for the teacher 🙂
For the card set, I cut out 6 apples using the front panel template. I used the Paper Studio – Polka Dots papers. And I put them together by gluing every pieces on 5×7 card bases. The printed sentiment is from Pencil Shaped Card Template – Cutting File. I used ek-Tool 2″ scallop circle to punch them and added them on the apple card. I added some faux hand-stiches all around the apple using LePen Journaling Pen.
I put the cards inside a cello bag, add the note card on top of it, and then tied it up with some natural twine. And the gift is ready for her teacher 🙂
