We had 7 teachers to give to this year and I was struggling trying to come up with the perfect gift.
I really wanted them to know how much I appreciate their part in my children’s lives and for a crafter, something handmade is about as ‘heartfelt’ as it gets.
So handmade it was!
I came up with the idea to give them each a corkboard tile that I stenciled and adorned with thumbtacks made from fabric covered buttons. I LOVE how it turned out and each teacher seemed to really like their gift.
I found some ‘notebook’ scrapbook paper and cut it up into cards to tack to the front. I had the kids sign their name and then we wrapped them up.
I used this tutorial for the thumbtacks and just used a larger size button. The corkboards are the 12×12 tiles that come in sets of 4 and I made a quatrefoil stencil using my Silhouette.
I’m trying to think ahead for next year’s gifts, any ideas?
