We have a family friend who just graduated from Florida State University with a degree in elementary education and I wanted to make her something that she could use in the classroom, but also be cute, not just practical. (I have come to realize that I am not a good gift buyer, I tend to stick with practical gifts, because that is what I like to receive!) So I found a cute teacher quote online, and decided to cut it out in vinyl and make her a cup. The quote says: A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind, and touches a heart.
I also made her a monogrammed clipboard in Florida State colors. I found this clipboard at one of the local office supply stores, and cut out the monogram, and circles in vinyl. I stuck a Target gift card on the clip board as well.
Lastly, using the silhouette yet again, I printed out a little bookworm, and her name on printable vinyl, and wrapped them around EXPO dry erase markers. Then I bagged them, and printed out her name again on a label, and affixed it to the bag. I love the little bookworm, he is so stinkin’ cute! (I also love that you can print and cut with the silhouette!)
I tucked all this inside a Thirty One Bag I bought and put a bow on it, and it really turned out cute. Unfortunately I did not have enough time to take a picture of the finished gift before her graduation party! Just take my word for it that it looked adorable! We are so proud of her, and wish her the best!
Happy Crafting Everyone!
