Teacher gift Christmas 2012 "To Teach Is To Touch A Life Forever"

Pin It

Due to the wind storm we had a few short weeks ago, the kids schools were closed one day and so there was a make up day. It was a good thing because I forgot to get something for Kade's teacher. With no time to shop, I found myself in my craft room Tuesday evening hoping for some ideas for a gift for Kade's teacher (who has been very sweet). This is what I came up with.
I used basic Grey's Urban Prarie line for all of the paper. In my opinion, this is one of their cutest collections. I love it. I started by printing THIS saying onto the pink paper (Morning Glory).

I used a block of wood left over from the temple blocks. I'm not sure of the exact size, but it's a little bigger than 5x7 and it's about an inch think.

I will try to remember the sizes I cut everything, but really, you can do this however you like it. I didn't measure anything. I just started cutting. ( I was in a big hurry.)

Also, I inked all of the paper edges with brown ink before I adhered it to the project.

I cut a piece of (meadow) paper to fit the wood. I'm pretty sure I cut it to 5x7". I adhered it to the wood block with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
Then I cut a strip of (weather Vane) striped paper about 2 inches wide and attached it with Mod Podge about an inch from the bottom.
I cut out the saying next. I don't know the size. Sorry. Just eyeball it and do it like you like it. I Mod Podged that down next.

You're almost done.
I tied a bow around the whole thing. And added a label and a ladybug that I got from the sticker pack that came with the Urban Prairie Collection. I attached the label with a glue dot.

You could add a coat of Mod Podge to the top, but I like the paper finish.

Pretty easy huh?

Very cute! But on your download file... you left off the word "life". Can you fix this?

Thank you so much Kim. Sometimes when I convert files to PDF some elements disappear. I don't always notice so I really appreciate your pointing that out. I have it fixed now.
