Christmas Ornaments for the Teachers

Can't believe there are only a few more days of school left before the holidays begin!

Every year I like to treat the teacher's with something homemade and unique. This year I decided to make them an ornament... Yes, I know not very original but when it's made and personalized by your own hands... it is! 

Super cute and simple, right? Something a teacher can treasure for many years and hopefully they will think about the child that gave it to them!

For the ornaments I selected school themed papers from DCWV's Grade School Stack.  

Here are 3 of the ornaments I made. I actually made 5 in total but that was just much to squeeze into one photo, lol!

Just in case you are  interested, here is the list of files you will need to recreate one of these gifts:

(names done using the Print and Cut feature of the Silhouette)
Box - Classic Gift Boxes SVG Kit (altered by adding and window to the front)
Poinsettias - 3D Wintergreens SVG Kit
All cut on the Silhouette Cameo using SSDE

I resized the box so that the ornament would fit perfectly inside it :)

TIP: Shred some green and red card stock for the bottom of the box... this will keep the ornament from rolling around and it will add a little extra to the presentation!

The card stock I used for the boxes comes from Heidi Swapp's Believe Paper Pad. Really like her papers!

Hope you this had inspired you to create some personalized ornamental gifts for the teachers, or anyone else that you may want to surprise. They actually come together fairly quickly if you still need to make some before Christmas!

Also if you are an SVG Cuts fan, don't forget to check out their 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway on Facebook! Still SO many amazing prizes to be won!

Happy Crafting  :)
