A Gift for the Teacher by Lorena

Hello, SRM friends! With Summer quickly approaching, school will soon come to an end, so it's time to get those teacher gifts ready! It's Lorena here today to share an idea to package those well deserved gifts.

When I was creating this project, I did it with kids in mind. The design is simple enough that your kids can help you put it together, maybe coloring the stamped apple, adhering the border stickers or helping to die cut the foam letters. It may not turn super duper perfect, but I'm sure their teacher will love that they helped creating the package :)

I started with a 3x3x2 kraft box, and spiced it up with two red border stickers from Sticker Stitches/Christmas (Yay for using Christmas products all year round!). I wanted to add some white to make the borders pop even more, and the fine tip Bistro Chalk White Marker was perfect for that! I added white dots to the patterns. It takes a few minutes for the marker to dry, so be careful not to smudge it!

The "thank you" sticker comes from We've Got Your Sticker Plus/Thanks. Of course, no teacher gift is complete without an apple, so I stamped, colored and fussy cut the cute apple from Garden Friends stamp set and adhered it with foam tape. To spell "teacher" I die cut the letters from craft foam and adhered them to the box. Easy peasy!

And that's it! What about you, will you be creating handmade gifts for the teacher this year? Thanks for stopping by!
