Get crafty for Teacher's Day Gifts

Every year, I will sit down together with Xav and do up some gifts for the well deserved teachers. Recently, washi tapes has been quite a hit among the mummies whom I knew and of course this is nothing new to the crafters.

#1 This year, all we need are the following :

- Alpha Buttons
- Some twines
- Washi Tapes (Can be bought in stationery shops like Popular or Scrapbooking Stores like Paper Market, Mapletree house etc)
- Plain stationery holders (Can try to get them from Daiso)

I got Xav to choose the design of the washi tape he wanted and guided him to tape round the holder.

Follow by, I used the stamp below, cut it out using a scallop circle die and tie it onto the holder with twines as seen above.

Technique Tuesday : School Seal
Using craft glue, I managed to form the name of the teacher and sticked the alpha buttons onto the holder to make it more personalized.

#2 Make a "Thank you"  box card ! You'll need papers and a scoring board. There are a lot of tutorial on youtube, just search for "Box Card Tutorial",

#3 DIY a notebook should you have a zutter or cinch machine at home, buy some coloured A4 printing papers and cut them into quarters or to the size you want. Stick on some embellishment for the cover page.

I made some dividers as well with tabs for each colour segment.

#4 Make a crayon monogram of the Teacher's Initial or you can replace with washi tapes. All you need is to print out the letter you want, as well as some canvas boards.

Getting started on the "Washi Monogarm"
You can choose to washi the letters or you can choose to do it outside the letters like mine. Each letter took me about 20 mins to tape it.

I made Vera's name as well for our recent photoshoot !

#5 Honeysticks and Teabags !

For the well deserved Teachers who has to do the teaching and talking most of the time. This would make a good idea for gift as well. Put them into a holder, add on a bow and you are ready to go !
