FLORIDA GATOR THEME DOOR- Teacher Appreciation

 

FLORIDA GATOR THEME DOOR- Teacher Appreciation

 

I am one of the Room Moms for my daughters school.  Friday Me and another room mom (I am blessed this year there is more than 1 of us!! LOVE THAT)  We got a head start and worked on the door for our wonderful teacher. She obviously is a Gator Fan and SO ARE WE!! So we were happy to do this themed door. It was pretty easy to do!

The lines are done with 2 different size masking tape thickness. Once we covered the door with green paper, we marked out the lines with a ruler and then just used the making tape to mark the field. We then cut out a goal post and all the kids in the class were given a football. I had cut out all the footballs using brown kraft paper on a roll. I purchased a while ago for alot of my crafting projects from LOWE’s. They sell it in the paint department. Painters generally use it on the floor to protect the floors when they are painting. Its far cheaper than  purchasing a bunch of rolls at the Dollar Tree. However if you do not need a massive roll then the Dollar tree is the place to get it.

I have a large scale ink jet printer so I designed real quick the sign and printed it 13×19 so we didn’t have to cut out or paint all the letters for the top of the door. Made the job a bit faster and to the THEME :)

The kids all added their name and why they loved their teacher.  My daughter even threw in a GO GATORS on her football — GOOD GIRL!!

I am so thankful for the other room mom to spend a few hours with me to help make this door awesome!! Team work at its best!!

So excited how this door turned out!! I hope she knows how much the parents appreciate her and how much the kids love her!!

 

HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!!







Teacher Chalkboard & Dry Erase Board Easel – Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Chalkboard & Dry Erase Board Easel - Teacher Appreciation Week

Found these cutest Chalkboard / Dry Erase Board Easel in the Dollar Spot of Target. They are priced at $3.00 but they were still an awesome price and very cute. I knew with a little vinyl I could make them look even more fun for a teacher.

I added a quote and her name on the chalkboard side. It reads “They may forget what you said, but they will not forget how you made them feel.”

Adding her name on both sides because I am not sure which side she will use or display. As you have seen me use over and over again on my projects – Silhouette Machine. I love all the endless things I can do with this machine!!

I then purchased Chalk & Dry Erase markers and tied them on  for her to have to use with the board.

I love how it turned out and cost me under $5.00 for the gift (chalk was only $.47 and the pens were $.97 at walmart) Plus some vinyl.

HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK to all the wonderful teachers out there!







Starbucks Gift – Thanks-A-Latte – (take 3)- Teacher Appreciation

I have used this quote a few times over the years– CLICK HERE TO SEE THE OTHER THANKS A LATTE GIFTS

This year I have taken the reusable cup that Starbucks sells for 1.00 and used my trusty Silhouette Machine. Cut out with Forest Green Vinyl and added just the ring around the outside of the Starbucks logo. I did not reproduce the logo, simply personalized the cup only. (The cup on the left is personalized the cup on the right is how I purchased it)

I used  Oracle 651 vinyl and wipe the cup down with alcohol to prepare the surface before I added the vinyl.

I will then fill the cup with a Starbucks gift card inside and chocolates :)  Perfect gift for a teacher. SO FUN!!

Star Wars – May the 4th Be With You – Gift – Teacher Appreciation

Star Wars - May the 4th Be With You - Gift - Teacher Appreciation
This year Teacher Appreciation falls on May the 4th. We love Star Wars in this house and so I felt it would be fun to make a gift to go along with the day :)

I got this red tub from Dollar Tree. I used silver and black vinyl with my awesome Silhouette Machine. I use it for everything practically!! What as life before this wonderful machine?!?

I then created some fun tags for items I either already had or purchased at the store/dollar tree. Printed them on regular paper and cut them out and taped them on.   Light Sabers were a pack of glow sticks.

Bag of cookies (used raspberry shortbread)

The tags for these 2 fit over the top of a sandwich size zip top baggie. I placed the candy in the bag, closed it and rolled it down a bit. Cut out the tags, tent folded them and put them at the top of the baggies and staple once on each side. Instant cute candy bags.

Star Wars - May the 4th Be With You - Gift - Teacher Appreciation

Sports drink and a lemon/lime soda for these two items.  Vaderade and Yoda Soda

Star Wars - May the 4th Be With You - Gift - Teacher Appreciation

Put all the items into the container and they are ready for gift giving on May the 4th. My daughter can’t wait to give it to her teacher next week. She is super excited.

I have PDF the tags for you to use. I am unable to take custom requests for sizes at the moment. You are welcome to this FREE DOWNLOAD to my wonderful blog readers. I tried to use standard sized items so that it was easy to match if you decided to do this.  This gift would be great for Father’s Day as well. Something fun for any Star Wars fan!! :)
