Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

Hello friends!! This week on the Imaginisce blog, we are celebrating teachers. So many wonderful men and women put so much of their time and lives into helping teach our children, this week, we are sharing some gift ideas to show them how grateful we are for what they do.

For my project, I was inspired by this print I found on Pinterest. Using my silhouette, I die cut my sentiment using my favorite paper from the Welcome Spring Line, this fabulous yellow/white stripe.

I wanted the "heart" part of the sentiment to pop, so using a tone on tone red diagonal stripe from the Perfect Vacation 6x6 pad, I die cut the word along with a small heart to layer beside it. I added in a little bling to give just a bit more interest and dimension.

Once it was time to assemble the frame, I really wanted to make it stand out. So first, I backed my paper with a piece of solid white cardstock. Then, using LOTS of foam adhesive, I adhered it straight onto the top of the glass in the frame. Then I wrapped some red twine along the top, and called her done!

Here is a shot of the dimension!

Make sure you follow along on the Imaginisce blog this week to see all the inspiring projects we have to share!

Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!
