Yesterday’s peek at my flower embellished paper clips and the chalkboard painted tags came together last night to make these little Christmas teacher gifts.
It’s really a simple gift so I needed to do something to make the presentation great. I cut this shape using my Epic six machine (that has sat in its box forever) to make large tags. I played with it to arrange the gifts on the paper. For the paper clips I cut two small slits with a razor blade and inserted them.
I sanded the edges of the chalkboard tags and added a ribbon to each. I then sewed a piece of elastic to the paper to hold two tags in place. Then I stapled a piece of ribbon to the tag to tie a piece of white chalk on.
Super simple, but I feel like I put it together in a really cute way. I hope our Elementary school teachers like them, or at least find them useful.
Lastly I stamped a little Christmas greeting on a decorative tag and slipped it inside the elastic. I wrote the name of my child at the very bottom.
The entire gift fit perfectly in a 5×7 inch envelope. Simple but cute. My son’s kindergarten teacher raved about it when I picked him up this morning. I was thinking this would also be a cute end-of-year gift for teachers. All you would need to do is change the color of the paper tag it’s placed on. I added up my costs and these gifts came in under $2 each. I already had the chalkboard paint on hand.
So they’re done and delivered. Hooray!
