Each school year we help the kids make a cute or fun DIY craft that they can include with their teacher’s gift. Last year we did a gift that included a class picture, this year we wanted to make it a little more personal.
Both of our kids have awesome teachers. These gals have gone above and beyond for their class and for each child and the kids really wanted to help make the gift this year.
Since one of the teachers really loves coffee we chose to do a homemade gift basket that included some fun coffee items.
*Note.. My children do know how to spell, this was just an inside joke between them. My child had a little trouble spelling “you’re” so he did this on purpose and then on the back of the car we wrote “Just kidding.. You’re the best!” It was a fun idea that he wanted to do so we let him!
Since we already made a DIY popsicle stick coaster, we wanted to incorporate that into the gift because it’s something the kids helped us make.We also borrowed the idea from the BIC Mark-It™ Merry Making Idea booklet.
You can get the booklet of merry marking and a coupon to start marking your fun projects.
Then we made our gift card by tracing another gift card onto a white piece of card stock. We then wrote our message on the card stock using our #HoneyBrown BIC Mark-It™ permanent marker.
If you don’t have any card stock around you can always use note card or something that has a heavier feel to it than plain paper. You can also get more creative here by creating your own gift card shape or design.
Once we were all finished we added our coffee cup we purchased and made a small gift basket with some cellophane.
You can really get creative with your gift ideas and packaging.
Don’t forget to get the booklet of merry marking and a coupon to start marking your projects with some fun and creativity!
I nominate my mom, my grandmother and Toni to participate in BIC’s Month of Merry Marking! Happy creating!
