Last Friday my son came home with a PTA calendar for the month. A quick scan revealed that Teacher Appreciation week is only four weeks away. This year it's being held May 2nd through May 6th. Every year I tell myself that I'll come up with some adorable and personalized crafts for our beloved teachers. But, the reality is that I put it off every year until the last minute when I inevitably throw a notepad and candy bar in the back pack instead. Don't get me wrong, I'm pro notepads and candy bars. They're both delicious and useful. But, since I'm a crafter through and through, I feel like I can do a bit better.I made them from 6" wide boards cut into squares. Then I painted them white, roughed them up with some sandpaper and then added a touch of antiquing glaze. My glaze was found at Lowes in their paint section and I can't praise the product enough!
The vinyl decal was designed by me on my Sign Blazer software, using a few of my favorite fonts. I stress the word FEW because really there are so many winning fonts out there!
I finished them off with a piece of skinny beading twine.
I made a few extra and have them in my Etsy shop while they last.
I love linky parties and will participate in a few of these.
