Teacher Appreciation Printable Tags

Teacher Appreciation Week is just a couple of weeks away–starting May 7th–and we are sharing a few ideas today to get your teacher gift ideas started. We created these teacher appreciation printable tags that you can download for FREE, but just for a limited time! It’s the perfect reason to say “Thank you, Teacher!”

Everyday Party Magazine found this cute little gift basket at Target that makes this teacher appreciation gift really easy, but these printable tags make it really easy to create your own Teacher Gift!

This particular little bucket came with lemonade mix, so we created the adorable matching “when teaching gives you lemons” tag to match. But what I love about the design is that you can use the tag to go along with your own basket or DIY Teacher Gift idea! Just use the printable tag as a small thank you note to teachers.

For those of you that want to know what “day” Teacher Appreciation Day is to send in your gift, it’s Tuesday, May 8, 2018. Use these as teacher gift tags or even as cards for teachers. Pair with a small teacher gift or thank you message and you’re set! Everyday Party Magazine is sharing two other tags for FREE (for a limited time!) as well!

This “Tea-rrific” Teacher Gift Tag is paired with some tea and scone mix in another small basket from Target, but could easily work with some Starbucks gift cards or boxes of tea. We love the large flower pattern in orange and pink; it feels like springtime!

This small teacher appreciation gift basket from Target came with Mojito drink ingredients, but this tag would work with a bottle of wine, a liquor store gift card, and can be used year round for other occasions (I’m thinking my mom could use this after she keeps my kids for the weekend)! And yes, we all know our kids make the teachers drink (even if just a little). HAHA!

You can get these FREE TEACHER APPRECIATION PRINTABLES for just a few short days, and then they’ll be listed in the Everyday Party Magazine shop!

You can find the Lemonade Teacher Gift Tag HERE.

How to Make a T-shirt from a Hand Lettered Design

I’m really excited to share this Valentine’s Day project using my Cricut Maker! If you read my previous post (CLICK HERE TO READ), you’ll know that I am practicing hand lettering as one of my 2018 resolutions, and one of my favorite crafting hobbies is making projects with my Cricut Maker (BUY ONE HERE), so I thought I’d combine the two! I decided to make a Valentine’s Day t-shirt for my youngest daughter using one of my hand lettered sketches by turning the sketch into an image that can be imported and cut in Cricut Design Space from Cricut Iron-On Vinyl. And, head to the end of the post to see the rest of the Valentine Cricut Projects from some of my blogger friends!

This is the hand-lettered sketch I started with–just a simple design on a piece of scratch paper using a fine point Sharpie marker:

First, take a picture of your sketch with your phone or camera (I used my iPhone 7) in as good of light as you can. Then, you need to open your photo in whatever photo-editing software you have access to or use regularly. I use Adobe Photoshop, but there are tons of free options. You just want to use something to lighten up your photo and enhance the contrast of the text so it’s easier to load in Cricut Design Space. Here is the brightness setting if you’re using Photoshop.

If you look in the corner of the picture above and then at the picture below, you can see the difference in color/brightness. Crop your image and save it as a jpeg.

Once you have it saved, you need to head over to Cricut Design and start a new project. On the bottom left hand side you are going to click on the “Upload” tab and you’ll get this screen:

Click the “upload image” button and choose the image you saved.

Since the image is just black and white, Cricut considers that a “Simple” design, so choose that option and then continue:

Now you need to take out or “erase” all of the areas that are white/that you don’t want to cut.

Just use your mouse and click on the white areas (don’t forget in the middle of the letters!) so your image looks like this (here’s a close up):

(Here’s the full screen):

Since I’ll be cutting this file out of Iron-On Vinyl, I chose the Right side: “Save as a cut image” then click “Save” to continue:

Click the image you uploaded and insert it onto your canvas:

You’re ready to cut!

Make sure when you cut the file, you turn on the “Mirror” setting:

I used a light pink Cricut Iron-On vinyl (I know it looks white in the pictures) and the Cricut EasyPress (BUY IT HERE) to iron the design onto the shirt:

I love how it turned out! And once you get the hang of it, it’s really easy to make your own sketches into Cricut Design Space files that can be cut. So easy that I’m sure I’ll be using this technique again and again.

If you’d like save some time and make this t-shirt using my handwritten drawing to import into Cricut Design Space, DOWNLOAD IT HERE.




Happy New Year and a FREE Calendar Download!

Happy New Year from Pineapple Paper Co! Today is the first day the kids went back to school, which is essentially the first day of 2018 for me. During their holiday break, I truly make an effort to relax, not worry about work, and just spend quality time with them. But when they go back to school, it’s game on! I’m ready to organize the house, start goal planning, and start knocking out those resolutions. The first place I’m starting is filling out the calendar for the next couple of months–with basketball games, dance classes, and other commitments it’s always surprising how quickly the weekends fill up. This is the second year in a row I’ve designed a Printable Calendar for Everyday Party Magazine, and she’s sharing it with everyone to use in the New Year! I used my FAVORITE pattern (buffalo plaid, of course) and accented it with a clean, emerald green font. Head over to her BLOG to download your copy!

Luckily for all of us, she’s shared her recipe for these delicious blueberry scones over on her blog. And it is SO easy!!!
