Hi everyone. Heather Leopard is here today to talk about teacher gifts. With the school year winding down, I always like to give my girls’ teachers a gift card. The problem is that I always feel compelled to enhance it with a bit of personalization.
I decided a gift basket with a journal, gift card and plant was in order. I’ve been gardening quite a bit lately and I just love how easy succulents are to care for.
I also pulled a card I recently created from my stash as it was a perfect addition, made form the same collection I was planning to use for the gift decor.
Next, I created a bow in colors that coordinated with the journal and succulent I added to the gift basket. This bow is super dimensional and very easy to make. You simply cut strips of paper to your desired length. Note that they fold in half to form the bow so keep that in mind when cutting your strips. So you cut 5 strips the same length and then bend the ends together so that they make a loop. Secure then with adhesive, liquid glue or even thread. I chose a flower die but but you can add another loop on the inside.
I used this cute ruler crate I found at a dollar spot at one of my favorite stores. You could easily recreate this but using actual rulers, cut down or drawing the lines with marker. I added the bow, “thanks” and a few more embellishments!
So there you have it! What started out as a gift card was easily enhanced with a little creativity and heartfelt appreciation.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
