Our elementary school operates on a year round schedule which means we do some things at different times of the year than traditional calendar. For example, this week we’re celebrating Teacher Appreciation. Each day has a specific theme and yesterday was Card Day.
I hardly have time to play with my paper crafting supplies anymore and really need to! I forgot how relaxing it is. Thankfully I had come across this cute cut file in the Silhouette Design Store a while back to create a teacher thank you card. It was perfect for digging through my scrapbook supplies and using up scraps. (I hate to toss any reasonable sized card stock or scrapbook paper – yes, I have a problem. 😉 )
I used a digital scrapbooking kits for the lined paper. Just resized to fit the cut outline. I also intentionally glued down only the solid portion of the lined paper piece so I could flip up the chads at the top as though the paper really came out of a spiral notebook. It also gave the design a little more dimension.
Inside I let Dylan glue in a note he typed on the computer and then hand signed. It really is the thought that counts. I’m betting his teacher and teacher assistant loved the heartfelt note from him where he said he “xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo” them. First grade is still such a sweet age.
Supplies: Silhouette Design #65188 ‘Folded Card for Teacher’ cut file; Elementary kit by Karen Funk (lined paper); patterned paper; card stock; Baker’s Twine from Target dollar section.
