Today I'm popping in to share a quick and easy teacher appreciation gift idea. I love making handmade gifts for my kid's teachers and I thought the Wooden Recipe Box from Pebbles Homemade collection was the perfect piece to alter for a fun present.
I think personalizing gifts with the Teacher's name is always a nice touch and it was easy to achieve this using the darling foam thickers from the Homegrown collection. I adore mixing my fonts and THIS cutting file by Kolette Hall was the perfect way to fit the rest of her "name" in the small space I had left to work with. I think it's pretty cool that the cutting file covers all the acronyms you might need.
The colors in Pebbles Homegrown collection are a great fit for a school themed project. I love how well the colors compliment the school supplies that I added to my box and it's a wonderful bonus that a basic box like this is able to serve so many different purposes from a recipe box to a phone/address box to a basic container to hold a multitude of different office supplies.
To embellish my gift box I created a simple 3-D bow using a tool you might already have in your stash: The Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers! I have put together some simple instructions with a step-by-step picture tutorial over at Pebbles blog. Make sure to hop over there and check it out. ;)
I hope I've inspired you to try this quick and easy gift! The 3-D paper bows are so much fun to make!
