Papercrafting Gifts: Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas
As the school year winds down, I love to find a way to celebrate my boys’ teachers.
As a former teacher myself, I know that this time of year is bittersweet. The summer is calling and you are ready for a break, and yet you will miss the sweet faces you have spent every day with for the last nine months.
I know that my boys’ teachers give their all every day. So, I want to find a way to show them how much I appreciate all they have done.
There are so many amazing ideas floating around the internet, and especially on Pinterest.
Check out some of the ideas I’ve found!
I just love the girls over at Eighteen25! They have so many creative ideas!
In fact they’ve done a round-up of their own with all the teacher appreciation projects they’ve done.
These are my favorites!
I love the subway art from Eighteen25 and have several of them floating around my house. What teacher wouldn’t love this in their classroom?
Ok, this is just such a cute idea! And, a cup full of cookies is the perfect way to finish out your day after packing and cleaning up your classroom at the end of the year.
Cute, cute, cute!
As a Starbucks addict myself, I just loved this idea. In fact, I made this card myself for my son’s kindergarten teacher.
Office supplies make me drool!
And, I’d venture a guess that most teachers feel the same way. Restocking the supply is a great way to begin or end a school year!
Or, maybe you just stock it with candy. That could work too!
Over at Scrapbook & Cards Today, Jennifer Gallacher created some absolutely adorable teacher gifts.
Not only is this gift bag adorable, but you can upcycle while creating it. Truly a trash-to-treasure project!
How cute is this chalkboard project?
I can see that frame sitting on a teacher’s desk for years to come!
A bag of candy would be greatly appreciated by any teacher, but when it’s packaged in such an adorable way?! Perfect!
I’ve even created a teacher gift or two in my day – like this fun pencil bouquet.
So many amazing ideas for honoring that special teacher in your child’s life.
Looking for more ideas?
Check out the Papercrafter’s Corner Pinterest board: For Teachers.
Steph’s working on adding a whole bunch of ideas and resources there!
Now it’s time for me to get creating!
What ideas do you have to celebrate teachers? Are you a teacher?
Please share your teacher ideas with us, whether you’re hoping to be on the giving or receiving end!
We’d love to hear from you too!

Papercrafting Mid-Season Product Releases: Studio Calico & Sizzix
Are you having fun with all the papercrafting mid-season product releases?
I know I’m loving all the new stuff out there!
I think I see a bit of shopping in my future.
There are so many awesome things about the new Atlantic Collection by Studio Calico.
The best part? You can shop your favorites right now!
This fun nautical collection is full of fun patterns!
But, you don’t have to be scrapping a boat full of boating photos to use this collection. It is highly versatile!
In fact, Steph’s going to be using this collection in her step-daughter’s wedding album - it’s perfect for documenting her nautically-themed wedding!
I gotta say, I’m addicted to Studio Calico wood veneer shapes. And these tiny hearts are on my must have list! Oh my cuteness!
The sticker sheet has a fun combo of alphas, statement labels and cute arrows. Love it!
Ok, these cork arrows and chevrons are so cool!
I haven’t seen anything quite like these stickers. I think they would be perfect on my boy pages. I spy another must-have for my scrappy collection!
Loving the Atlantic collection?
Why not shop now?!
Next up is Sizzix, with a new Big Shot Machine! I’ll let them tell you all about it!
This new Big Shot includes a brand new look and a breakthrough accessory.
The Sizzix Big Shot now works with its entire library of arts and crafts embossing tools and chemically-etched dies, in addition to steel-rule dies. What a great addition to your papercrafting tools!
