Teacher Appreciation Day 5

We did it!

We spoiled our teachers for 5 full days!

Just a small price to pay for the love and dedication they pour into their classrooms 180 days a year.

{Not to mention all they put up with each day!}

Speaking of pouring, Whit took these to his teachers:

I bought the carafes at Wal-Mart and used my Cricut to cut the vinyl letter for the front. I used this kit by Chelle's Creations to create the tag:

I think they were a big hit!

Since we made those same gifts for Olivia's teachers back at Valentine's Day, I had to come up with something different.

I really wanted to get them something fun they could use on THEMSELVES! Not on the classroom and not on their kids or families...just on THEMSELVES!

So I went to our local Fru-Fru, Girly-Girl Store and got them each a gift card. I made a simple teacher-y cup to go with them.

We love you Mrs. Sophie and Mrs. Catherine!! You have truly made our year the best it could be!

So that's it!

Teacher Appreciation Week is officially over!

I hope you found some inspiration to do something fun for the teachers in your life!

I wonder if you guys would enjoy having access to the tags I made each day? Are the downloads helpful? Did you enjoy getting the previous downloads I posted? Do you know how to use them? Let me know and I'll see if I can get permission to post them. Some of the tags would be great to use as End-of-the-Year teacher gifts, too!

Thanks for tuning in!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I know I enjoyed them! I would love it if you got permission to share them! I don't have even a fraction of your creative ability, so any help would be awesome! Great job, Leigh!

Thanks for that wonderful week! It was awesome to go to school every day and having a surprise. I LOVED it and I LOVE my Livi!

Sophie Morand said...

By the way... Did you use sure cut a lot for the font on the carafes???

Leigh said...

@Sophie - yes I did use the SCAL for those! It worked perfectly!! :)

Stacy said...

Oh yes please!!! I still need to do end of the year gifts:)

Summer Martin said...

Girl You gave me inspiration to spoil my teachers everyday this year as well. I am not nearly as crafty as you so the gifts were not as cute and crafty but the kids and I really loved giving the gifts everyday. The teachers really seemed to like it too! Now I have a whole year to decide what to give next year:) Thanks for your ideas!!

Summer said...

I love all your great ideas and wish mine were 1/2 as good as yours :) Please keep posting them so that I can still them for next year ;)

Hope you don't mind, but I posted your blog to mine. I have had a wonderful wander around your site and have found some wonderful inspiration for the teachers in my children's lives. Thank you!

Can you tell me more about how to do the vinyl lettering?

Keeping My Cents said...

I would love the download. These are so adorable. I'm not so handy cutting vinyl with my Silhouette yet so I'm going to etch their letter on the carafe.
