Teacher Appreciation Gifts with the Cricut

Hi all, I am back as promised with some Teacher Appreciation gifts I did last week.  These came together pretty fast and the teachers loved them.  I will not list a recipe for each, just a list of cartridges that I used to create them.

So I used these great gable gift boxes I found a Target in their dollar section.  Them came 3 to a pack for a dollar.  You can't beat that!!  I used a variety of patterned papers to decorate the sides of the boxes and some ribbon from my stash.  The tags I printed and cut with my Imagine.  It took a while to figure out how to get it to just print and them cut.  It involved putting the text on one layer in the Craft room and the square on another layer.  Then you just print on the paper first and then go back and cut the second layer afterwards.  I used the font from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge for all the tags.  The cartridges I used for the images are below.

  • Butterflies are from Kate's ABC's and Ultimate Creative Sampler
  • Birds are from Create a Critter
  • Flowers are from Kate's ABC's
  • Cupcake from Once Upon a Princess
So there you have it.  I filled the boxes with candy and a Target gift card.   I had a bunch of fun doing these boxes.  Thanks for visiting and hope you have a wonderful week.
