A Gift for Teacher by Jamie Cripps

Friday, May 31, 2013

Good Morning!  Jamie back today to share another bargain gift for the teachers!
and hiding inside is this cutie is this adorable personalized post-it note holder!...
I picked up the post-it note holder for just $7.00 from a local Office Max and spent about $0.35 for the vinyl!  We also picked up a three pack of the pop-up post-it notes which were on sale bringing this teacher gift in at under $10.00 in total!  WooHoo!  Anyone else excited!?  :)

How about a quick ribbon tutorial?  Maybe that will do the trick!
Today I am using a Celadon Lyon French Wired Ribbon from Ribbons Unlimited!  I love the feel of the Lyon French Wired ribbons and since they have wire, they stay where you want them! 
1.  Gather your box and clear a little space to work.
2.  Trim a large piece of ribbon and place the center of the ribbon across the top of the box.
3.  Pull the ribbon down under the bottom of the box and then cross the ribbon and begin pulling them back up to the top of the box.
4.  Both of your ribbons should be back at the top like this image.
5.  Push one of the strings under the ribbon already on the box.
6.  Then push the second one under in the opposite direction.
7.  Pull the two ribbons back up and then tie together, pulling the ribbon tight.
8.  Tie a bow as you normally would, fluffing out the bow area.
9.  Pull the end to the side behind one of the loops of the bow then tie another bow in the center of the existing bow.  Trim the ends to the desired length.  If you have a lot of excess ribbon, you could always tie a third bow!

Gift for Teacher by Jamie Cripps

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Hi guys, Jamie back with you today and I have been working on Teacher gifts for our class interns!  I wanted something that the new teacher could sit on her desk as she starts her new career in her very own classroom next year!

I used my Silhouette with Samantha Walker's Pear Blossom Silhouette cut and  brown vinyl 
to create this personalized Teacher Gift and I love how it turned out!  I used the Celadon Lyon French Wired Ribbon to create the bow then tied a piece of white twine around its center.  

Then I added in amber colored gems to the flowers on the glass container 
and then tossed in some new pencils to get her collection started!
I was able to put the entire gift together in under 30 minutes and for less than $6.00!
Love that.  Are you working on Teacher gifts?  Be sure to link us up in the comments section so we can stop by!
