Teacher Appreciation Week Free Printable
Here’s a printable to add to a gift to give your child’s teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week. Give the gift of flowers that you can plant outside. Teacher Appreciation Week is always in the springtime, and a pretty potted flower is always a fun gift. Add in a gift card to buy lunch or a treat and it’s a gift they are guaranteed to love.
Here’s a fun way to add more of a framed look to this printable, We are making a medallion around the printable to stick into the pretty potted flower. I love making these paper medallions. You can keep this gift as simple as just the flower pot, or you could add in a few gardening supplies and a gift card, if you’d like. This printable reads: “Thank you for helping me “GROW” up great!”
Here is what you need for this Teacher Appreciation Printable Craft:
– a circle cutter of some sort (like a die cutting tool)
– a paper medallion that you have made out of a heavy card stock (Here’s a tutorial on how to make a paper medallion)
– the printable to add to the center
– a glue stick
– a wooden skewer
– the potted flower
– a roll of crepe paper streamers (I used white and yellow…one for each side of the paper medallion)
– a hot glue gun to adhere the center of the paper medallion to the wooden skewer
How to put this Teacher Appreciation Craft together
Once the printable is cut out, adhere it to a heavier card stock circle of the same size to give it some sturdiness.
To make a paper medallion this size, start with a 4 inch wide x 12 inch long strip of card stock. Fold it back and forth accordion style. Add hot glue to the center and hold it together until the hot glue has set.
Now turn the printable over and roll a glue stick over the outside rim and adhere the paper streamer all around the edge pinching it as you go making pleats.
Now you can hot glue the center onto the skewer. And… you’re done!
If you’d like, you can do this to both sides of the paper medallion…or, you could add a note on a plain round piece of paper on the backside to your teacher. Stick it in the potted flower, and you are done!
