Yet another teacher appreciation gift ;)
Hope everyone's having a wonderful Mother's Day! My hubby's taking the kids out for a few hours this morning so I have some quiet time for myself - thanks honey! I just realized I forgot to post this third (and last!) Teacher Appreciation gift I created for my kids' teachers. I got these jumbo memo clips at the dollar store last week and wanted to jazz them up for the teachers.
Here are the other two I made:
I used my go-to die cut machine nowadays, my Cameo. I just love the ease of print and cut feature, as well as the ability to use the fonts already in my computer. Plus I am able to adjust the shadows as wide or as thin as I want. Here are some pics of the print and cut feature. The prints on the cuts were ones I purchased from the Silhouette Store. Really wished I had a wide format printer so I could utilize the full 12x12 mat :( - are you listening, honey?!
For added stability and durability, I added a bottom layer cut in acetate. It's hard to see below because acetate is hard to photograph.
To adhere the signs to the jumbo memo clips, I used terrifically tacky tape (I tried hot-glueing them but they just came right off).
To make it easy on me while designing, I used only the Forte font.
Ok, the hubby and the kids are due back soon so off to spend the rest of Mother's Day in this (finally) beautiful day! Have a fab day, everyone!
