Handmade Teacher Thank You Gift

Handmade Boxed Card Sets

I can’t believe today is the last day of Kindergarten for my son!  Graduation is tonight and it’s a very big event!

I ran around yesterday afternoon as reality hit and I realized I was running out of time to make gifts for Micah’s teacher and teacher’s aid.  Yikes!  I remembered I had two boxes made up out of Kraft cardstock, undecorated.  All I had to do was decorate the boxes and make cards to fill them.  No problem!

Not long ago I showed you some of the easiest cards possible to make.  You can view the Flower Fancy handmade cards here.  I had three of the cards already made so I quickly made up 17 more of the cards.

Scallop Circle Big Shot Dies

I made the flowers using the Scallop Circle Dies and retiring Cameo Coral cardstock to match the cards.  I cut out 2 of the large circles for each flower as well as 3 of the medium size and 3 small circles.  I dampened the scallop circles with water, wadded them up, unwadded them and stuck them together with a brad.  Add a little ribbon, tags, the cards & envelopes and we’re ready to go!

Whew!  We can go on with graduation now!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my website!  I hope you’ll visit again soon!

  1. That is a terrific teacher’s gift! So pretty, and something actually useful 🙂 Congrats to the little graduate!!

  2. And wait…you said you ‘quickly’ made up 17 cards?!? That would take me weeks! Hahaha! That’s why I take card classes, right? 🙂

  3. Really cute! As a retired teacher I can say that I would have been happy to receive such a nice, thoughtful gift. Handmade items are always special.

  4. I definitely agree with Laura. Becky, you are one of the few – very few – people I know who could say, “Only 17 more cards – no problem!” The gifts are beautiful and what a nice gift, too! Any teacher would be thrilled. (I sure would have!)

    Have a wonderful family evening. Congratulations, Micah!

  5. Oh wow, those flowers are beautiful!! tfs
