Have You Appreciated the Teachers Yet?



I made about 24 of these cards for my kids' teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week. I found that when I was teaching, I was always in need of thank you notes, especially at the end of the year, so I thought the wonderful women who teach my kids could use some, too.

It was so easy to do these, too. I was able to stamp 12 of the ABC panels on one 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock with very little waste. I also used the largest acrylic block I had to place the letters just right, so it went very fast. To spruce these up a bit, I added glitter to the chocolate frosting, Diamond Glaze to the apple and black flocking to the bee. It was an afterthought, so that didn't get photographed. Just pretend, ok?

I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend. I am looking forward to some fun with my family and maybe a few friends, too.
