Hello! It’s Terhi here with my thoughts and ideas about how to say thank you for one of our most important people in everyday life – Teachers.
When my younger daughter started her school couple years ago, I didn’t even thought about appreciating teachers hard work before my friend started a conversation about how to say thank you.
Before buying a bouquet and chocolate, I started to really think about what I’d like to give. The work they do is so impressive, and of course it would be fantastic to give what they really deserve – and want. Together with other parents we ended up to putting our money together, and bought a gift card to a local beauty salon. We thought to support local small business, and what would be more relaxing after hard work than long massage, or any other treatment.
But of course, it’s not all about the gift card. It’s also about the way the gift card is given. And how the words are said. I couldn’t accept any printed card, I wanted to create it by myself and write beautifully how much we appreciate our teacher.
These small cards are made on cardstock base. I first cut out tag shaped piece of cardstock, then similar shape piece of patterned paper and glued them together. Obviously words on cardstock are easier to read than on patterned paper. On top of the base I added several layers of paper scraps. Lots and lots tiny pieces and all adhered together with a stapler. So quick to do!
I glued down the paper cluster and then added some stickers and ephemera pieces to decorate. As you see, the other card doesn’t even have any sentiment. It’s all written to the backside. Now I’m just going to put these to envelopes together with the gift cards and hug our teacher tightly.
I hope you find these small cards inspiring! Thank you for coming here today!
