Spoiling our awesome teachers! Free printable!

May 5, 2015

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week!  Both of my kiddos have great teachers this year and their schools have a ton of fun stuff planned for the teachers this week!  We of course want to contribute so I made up some fun tote bags for the kids’ teachers!

V has 2 teachers in his 2/3 preschool class.  I made these cute little orange and brown paisley tote bags last year when I was testing some bag designs.  I went with a kind of book theme and made a fun (ok corny) tag for each teacher.

Inside each bag, I put in a little store bought notebook, chocolates and a few more handmade items.  These cute washi tape bookmarks…

and a little stack of personalized book plate stickers, that I designed.

For O’s Kindergarten teacher, I made this really cute teacher’s tote.  I found the tutorial HERE from Crafty Cupboard on Mabey She Made it.  It was a pretty quick sew and it is really cute and a great size for books, notebooks, ipad, whatever!

We found out from her teacher’s favorites list on the PTA website that she likes the color blue, so O picked out the blue fabric from my stash.  She insisted on the paisley print!

For Mrs. E, O helped me make the bookmarks.  She drew and wrote on strips of cardstock.  I then laminated them and added a cute yarn tassle.

O wrote a bunch of sight words on one of the bookmarks and then added her teacher’s name and signed it!
