Personalized Teachers Gift

If you’re a parent, you know how much you endure in one day with your one, two, three, four or more (God bless your heart!) kids.   Just think about how much a teacher endures in one day!  With the student to teacher ratio being 12:1 in South Carolina, you bet that they go through a lot.   And you’d also bet that they come across a lot of germs!  Which is why this teachers gift by Ginger Bowie of Ginger Snap Crafts makes a lot of sense.   Not only is it useful, but it’s super cute and personal. 

For this simple project, you will need:

·         PSA Vanilla a-i stamp set
·         PSA Peel & Stick Stamper
·         White card stock/colored card stock (Walmart & Hobby Lobby)
ribbon (Hobby Lobby)
·         Hand sanitizer
·         "Back to school" scrapbook paper (Hobby Lobby)
·         Lifestyle Crafts circle nesting dies/Revolution Die Cutting Machine
Elmer's Spray Adhesive
·         Elmer's X-TREME glue stick

First, stamp the letter of the teacher onto white paper using your PSA Essentials Vanilla Peel & Stick stamps and your PSA Stamper loaded with black ink.   Punch and frame against colored cardstock that has been punched out with a larger punch.   Glue onto scrapbook paper that has been trimmed to fit the size of the bottle.    Adhere with your spray adhesive carefully.    Then, tie a beautiful bow to complete the look.   You are sure to be the favorite parent with a cute classroom gift like this!   Can we say – “brownie points?” 

Thanks Ginger for this super cute idea!
