Teacher Appreciation Gift-Caricature Notecards
Can we please get in our time machines and go back to June…you know the time of year you hand your kids’ teachers their gifts for all of their hard work? Because that is when I made these and it’s now NOVEMBER (how is it NOVEMBER going on DECEMBER?). I figured I’d still throw these up because sometimes parents are looking for teacher Holiday present ideas and these might come in handy for that. So every time I have given my daughters pre-school teachers a gift, they’ve always responded back so graciously with a thank you card. I though it might be cute to get them some personalized thank you card being that they have to write so many throughout the year. I placed the notecards and envelopes in plastic baskets I found at Target. With each notecard set I included a pen (that also had the caricature on them) as well as a DVD that held the caricature images in case they wanted to make more notecards when they ran out. I wrapped the whole thing both vertically and horizontally with some rainbow twine and voila…a fun gift and package all in one! The teachers were all so excited to see these caricatures of themselves and it was a fun unique gift to be able to give them.
SUPPLY LIST & SOURCES
CARCICATURE DESIGN-NOTECARDS & PENS: Vistaprint I also purchased the separate caricature file so I could print myself on my disc label.
PATTERNED SCRAPBOOK PAPER: I used the Moroccan Prints Digital Paper Pack from PrettifulDesigns on ETSY and printed it myself.
ENVELOPE: I made my own by cutting an 8.5×11 sheet of cardstock and rounding the sides but you can purchase any type of envelope pocket at your craft store.
BASKETS: Room Essentials Storage Bin from Target. I bought in the store and didn’t need to buy a set of 4 like it says online.
YARN-TWINE or RIBBON: I used the Deborah Norville Serenity Garden Gems yarn. I bought it at Joann Fabrics but don’t see it there anymore.
CD or DVD’s plus printable sticker labels for them
FULL SHEET STICKER PAPER: to print the caricatures on for the sticker to close the envelope. You could also just print on circle labels.
CIRCLE PUNCHES: To cut out stickers for envelope if you used full sheet sticker paper.
GEL DOTS: To hold the DVD to the paper. You stick them to the paper and them pop the DVD hole through them. I’m not sure where to find these. My friend gave me a bunch that she had.
