{DEBUT} Teacher Appreciation Stationery Gift Pack

hello there! 
I wanted to share a little project with you that I have created 
for all the teachers next week in honor of  
I don't know about you all, but my little one has the most amazing 2nd grade teacher so I wanted to do something special for her in mind, which is where a lot of the inspiration came for this collection.

Everyone seemed to really enjoy my "little chick" that has been seen in my "Think Spring" stationery collection & then again recently in the "Little Chicks EASTER collection", so I thought "why not?" . . let's not put her away just yet! lol

In this collection I wanted to have it be versatile - something you could send in with your kiddos next week as a gift to honor their teacher or for those of you in charge of arranging something nice for the teachers (ex. PTO members or homeroom moms)
I think you will find that it does both so I hope you find it very useful.

Here are a few of my ideas that I am going to do or came up with for you! I didn't shoot any pretty pics for you as I wanted to get this out to you right away, but will post here in a day or two & let you know when I do!

The collection includes a banner, toppers, gift tags/mini 3x3 cards, paper pack, stationery paper w/ holder. 

First the banner - I used primary colors for the collection & also a gingham print as the major design element. The banner is in the yellow gingham & has the letters in blue throughout.
I decided to have it say "WE {apple in shape of heart} OUR TEACHERS!
So you could use this for just {ONE} teacher & NOT include the {S} at the end or you can hang it in the teachers lounge or whatever for all the TEACHER{S}! And then you will find just one banner pendant with the little chick on it holding an apple - so you can put her at the beginning or at the end or both - totally up to you! 
Just cut little slits on the "upper sides" of each & sting the banner with twine, wide ribbon - anything you think will hold it up! 
I plan on sending this in with my daughter & having my daughter & a few of her friends hang this up in the class next week for their teacher!

The toppers come 12 on a sheet & have several different sayings plus some that are just the chick on them. You can use these as a square or use a circle or scallop punch & have a little added flair. Attach these to gifts for the teachers, attach them to a lollipop stick & put them in cupcakes or a dessert table. Attach them to some cake pops or use on a stick & put in a potted flower . . .ideas on endless!
The gift tags or mini 3x3 cards can be used for just that! As gift tags attached to a gift or as a card for your little kiddo to write her a note! Here's an idea I am doing - why not print your kiddos teacher out a bunch of these, tie a ribbon around them & give them to her (to use) as a little card set for when she has to send a note home to you!
Lastly is the stationery paper pack & holder. This is a fantastic little project to do for a GIFT for your kiddos teacher as it serves as a stationery holder for the paper that is included in this package to hold it. The holder you could use either the red gingham or yellow gingham paper (included in this package)
& pick which color you like, print it out, then on the backside of this, you will want to print the stationery box instructions (included but not shown in this collection) to cut out & fold to hold the stationery paper that comes next. If you would like to see "how" this holder looks or if you missed the post on this in my "Think Spring" line - click here as a reminder.

Then you will want to print out this page of these 3 different designs of the stationery paper that you will put in this holder.
Then once you have the holder folded together, printed the stationery paper & put it in there - some ideas to "dress it up" include: tying a ribbon around the holder to give it a feminine touch. Adding a topper by gluing one on the front, etc. Possibilities are endless!

Available here in my Etsy store!  

And as an added BONUS - I have added 2 - yes TWO small printable art posters that can easliy be framed & given as a gift! There are 2 different ones so you can pick or give both - up to you! 

OK - like I said earlier, may post some pics of the actual line when I get a chance but there is all the info you need to add some FUN into a teachers appreciation party or for your kiddos teacher just to say thanks! Hope you enjoyed it & would love to hear your feedback on what you are planning!

A special THANK YOU to all those wonderful teachers that give of themselves everyday to ensure are kids are safe & happy when they are not with us! THANK YOU! xoxo

  1. Laura great ideas!
    I am designing a cupcake inspired box that will hold custom stickers and note cards for each of our teachers. The children in the class will bring in two flowers each that will make up a bouquet of flowers. The parent volunteers will arrange the flowers and present to the teachers with a custom gift tag address to them. We love our teachers!
    Thanks for sharing your ideas and blog, your the best!


let me know you were here . . .
