For now, I have been on a deadline to get Teacher Appreciation gifts organized. I had the idea of a gift card tree (the kind you find at Christmas). Well turns out, you can't find them, unless they are super expensive. So, I got other ideas, looked on pinterest, returned all of the stuff from my other idea and went with something 'easier'.
So, I sent out a note to parents, they all donated gift cards, I then pulled out my handy dandy Cricut. I used 4 different carts (oops, sorry didn't write the down, and don't remember), and I made flowers and one butterfly. The gift cards then started flowing in and I realized that Starbucks has an ugly color brown. So, I colored it up a bit by using a flower punch and some brads.
And, here they are! I have no idea where on pinterest where I saw this. I think I pulled it from a combo of two or three ideas out there. This is not my own idea, FYI. There is my disclaimer.
I am pleased! I think they are cute and absolutely filled with generous gifts our wonderful teachers so greatly deserve!
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
