Teacher Gift Idea

Looking for some quick and easy gift ideas for your kids’ teachers? Look no further! Thanks to my friend Carrie and her awesome idea (which I found here), these are the finished gifts that I gave to Jackson’s teachers this morning. I also gave them the mini vases of fresh roses from our garden.IMGP7080

Aren’t they cute? So affordable too. Each acrylic 4x6 frame cost $1.19 at Target. The decorative dry erase markers were $1.99 for three, also at Target. Then I printed on white cardstock at home (although colored cardstock would work well too) and embellished with the Stampin’ Up “Reason to Smile” stamp set. I stamped the horizontal flower border in yellow, then used a butterfly wing to make a green scalloped floral border at the top of the cardstock.IMGP7085

Slip the blank list into the frame, and you’re done! Here’s the one I finished for Katie’s teacher. I got the idea to spin the frame around from this blog post.IMGP7082

The teachers are also getting a few other goodies in appreciation of their hard work. One is a home movie of class photos through the year. I hope they feel appreciated because they are!

Here’s another link to a cute Post-It/frame teacher gift.

Super cute! I already put together L's teachers' end-of-the-year gifts, but I will remember this for Christmas for next year!
