“Sticking with Me” Teacher Appreciation Gift and Printable Tag

 This post was originally published on April 25, 2018 but I have an updated gift tag to share today.
The original tag is also still available at the bottom of the post if that is the tag you would like to print.

I have one more gift idea for you today for Teacher Appreciation Week. 

Gifts don’t have to be crazy expensive or large and over the top. You can still do small, simple gifts that will show your child’s teacher how much they are appreciated for the hard work they do all day.

Teachers write notes for all sorts of things, quick reminder for themselves, a note for another teacher or parent, to place inside a file, so post-it notes are a great gift idea. There are lots of fun colors, patterns and sizes that you can buy for the gift as well so you can give them a variety.

I found these in the office supply section at my local Wal-Mart store.

Since post-it notes are sticky, I wanted to make some cute tags with Cacti and Succulents on it because if you aren’t too careful, a cactus will stick you too! lol
I designed three separate tags for you to use.

Just print, cute and tie around your gift.

You will get three patterns, two of each pattern for six total tags. 
When I printed, I unselected the “fit to page” option on my printer settings and it fit perfectly for printing. Print on card stock so the tag is stronger and won’t rip.
Grab your copy of cacti tags below (these will not have the watermark on them).
If the widget below isn’t working you can also grab the tags here: Cactus “Sticking with Me” Tags.

These tags would also be super cute tied to a succulent or cactus as a gift as well! 🙂

Another gift that we gave Miss P’s teacher last year was this set of stickers and an apple shape set of Post-It Notes.

"Sticking with Me" Teacher Appreciation Gift and Printable Tag

 I knew she would need to write little notes so the apple Post-It notes were so cute and perfect for that and what teacher doesn’t love stickers? I bought some cute smiley faced stickers that she could place on student’s work or just hand out to the kids for doing good work.

And since both items had some sort of stickiness factor to them, I made this tag to go with it.
Teachers work hard and have to stick by their student’s sides in order to help them grow and learn so I wanted the note and gift to mention that.

"Sticking with Me" Teacher Appreciation Gift and Printable Tag

You can download the tag to print to use for your gifts below. If the widget isn’t working, you can also find the tag here: “Sticking by Me Tag”

Here are a few other teacher appreciation gift ideas that I’ve shared to help you out.

Spring Floral Hoop Wreath

Hello everyone! 
Remember me? 
Hopefully the weather is spring like in your neck of the woods!
 It finally showed up for us here, yay, and I can’t wait for more actually color to start popping up outside too!
I know I have been super quiet here, for a while now, but I finally have something to share with all of you! 
I love the hoop wreaths that have been floating around and wanted to make my own and I really love how it turned out.
 It is easy to create, like most wreaths, so you can easily complete it in a short time frame one afternoon.
Here’s how you can create one for you door or even indoor decor.
Supplies:
-Hoop (I bought this MDF wood hoop at Michael’s in the styrofoam section)
-Glue Gun
-Floral picks
-Succulent picks
-Ribbon optional
-Acrylic paint or spray paint 
-Wire cutters
-A piece of felt
Begin by painting your hoop. 
I just painted two coats of white acrylic paint on mine but you could also just use spray paint.
 As your paint is drying, trim all the heads of your blooms off the stems and cut apart any leaves or smaller floral picks to prepare them for use.
Cut felt and glue it to your hoop.
You will glue the floral blooms and leaves to the felt.
I like to dry fit my entire wreath together first to figure out exactly how I want it. Once I am happy I will start gluing each piece individually, overlapping them, and working my way around the wreath.
Start with larger blooms and leaves and continue filling in with smaller items as you go.
 Keep going until the full wreath is complete filling in where need be.
After all of the blooms and leaves are attached, if you will see any of the felt from the front, just flip it over and trim it down. 
And that’s it!! 
Hang it and enjoy! 

I hope you guys like my new wreath and I sure hope that I will pop back on here more and more. Only time will tell. 🙂
 Until then, see you later!
