Personalized Bookmark Shakers for the Teachers


Today is the last day of school for my kids! I'm am so excited to have them home for the summer and the best part is that I don't have to worry about packing lunches for a while! Oh, the small things that excite me ;)

So for today I want to share with you the fun Bookmarks I made for the kids teachers.

I saw this idea a while ago on You Tube and thought these would be perfect for the teachers. Here is the link to the video for those interested. I did make them a little different then the video instructed.

Here is how I made mine.
First of all I personalized the inside clear bag with each teacher's name using black vinyl. Here is a link to the font I used. The vinyl was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. Next because I do not have a laminator, I used some self laminating sheets that I found at the Dollar Store and just cut them down to size. They worked well, but because I cut close to the edge of the inside bag I wasn't sure how they would hold up. For extra reinforcement, I used my fuse tool to secure the edges. I guess if you didn't have a fuse tool you could also stitch the edges with a sewing machine. Before finishing off the tops of the bookmarks I filled them with various sequin colors, chunky glitter and microbreads. To seal the tops I used clear scotch tape, then wrapped coordination washi tape along the top edge. I finished them by adding an eyelit in the center to add some decorative ribbon, this also secures the layers together.

These bookmarks are fairly large they measure approximately 9 inches long by 2 inches wide. But you can make them to suit whatever size you like.

Hope you like my Personalized Bookmark Shakers for the Teachers. They are so much fun and interactive, all you want to do is shake them! I think these would make great gifts for any reader in your life.

Personalized Teacher Tumblers | SVGCuts

Are you ready for school to be over?
I know I am and so are my kids, but I can almost bet the teachers are even more excited!

Today I want to share with you the year-end treats I made for these great teachers. These personalized teacher tumblers were super easy and quick to put together. This was the first time I layered vinyl on a project and I love how simple it was to do.

SVGCuts files,Gift,#SVGCuts,Silhouette Cameo,Personalized Teacher Tumblers,teacher gifts for Year End,I love doing all things crafty,layered vinyl,vinyl,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

To make your own here is what you will need:

  1. Tumblers
  2. Black, green, red, white, gold vinyl sheets (Oracal 651)
  3. Transfer tape
  4. SVG Files from Miss Baker's Classroom SVG Kit and  Miss Karen's Back to School Bags SVG Kit
  5. Font: Bernard MT Condensed
  6. Silhouette Cameo / Electronic Cutting Machine

The only alteration I made to create this project, was to add the teacher's name to the red layer of the apple. By doing that when you cut it out, the name is already cut out of that layer. This will save you from worrying about getting perfectly straight letters! The rest was layering the pieces of vinyl onto each other. Begin with the black layer of the apple, followed by the red, green leaf, gold worm, white eyes, and then the black again for the eyes and glasses. The tricky part is aligning the layers, so make sure you have great lighting to see through the transfer paper. Also, use a straight edge (credit card/ruler) to press out the air bubbles as you add each layer.

Hope this has inspired anyone still looking for that quick last-minute teacher gift. If you have any questions, I would love to hear from you!

Year End Teacher 3D Shaped Paper Gifts | SVGCuts

Hello Everyone! 

Have you missed me? I've been away on a few trips since my last post, for those that follow me on Instagram you all know where I have been ;) Check it out if you already haven't! (Click on the Instagram Button on the Side Bar)

Anyways, on to today's post... Year-end Teacher gifts! Can you believe it? Another year has just flown by... still feels like my kids just started school yesterday! Hopefully, summer won't feel like it flies by too!

To thank the teachers at the end of the year I always like to make them something to remember my kids by! Both my kids have loved having their teachers this year and they truly are fantastic people! This is the least I could do to thank them :)

For my daughter's Teacher here is a 3D Apple Box... at least this apple will last forever! Is it not just the cutest thing?! Thanks for a great year Mrs. O!

3D Paper School House Treat Boxes for Teachers | SVGCuts

Yeaaaaah! School is almost done!!! My kids are so excited for the summer holidays to begin... they have started the countdown a while ago, LOL! 

My son is even more excited he gets to miss the last week of school... even though they are the fun school days, he really doesn't care! He leaves tonight with my In-laws for Portugal! He is so excited, I'm sure going to miss my little man :'( Well join them there in August!

So because today was his last day of school I wanted him to give his teacher a little gift to thank her for all her help this year... (I think teachers have the hardest job! They deserve so much more!!!) Of course I made the same gift for my daughter's teacher, but she won't receive it until next week! Hopefully, Mrs. Stiksma doesn't show Mrs. Esser, LOL!
