You Make Learning a Piece of Cake
You Make Learning a Piece of Cake! With 4 boys, and a team of dedicated and loving teachers, Teacher Appreciation Week can get a little pricey. I have a fun and affordable gift idea for you that you can do ANYWHERE with your Cricut!
Card stock 8.5″x11″ (white) for the free printable tag
Cricut and Cricut iPad App (free)
Baker’s Twine or ribbon
I am spending an exorbitant amount of time at the local baseball fields lately…with two kids playing and a husband coaching, we are there at least 4 days a week for h-o-u-r-s! And while I love cheering my guys on, I need to get things done too! So, I brought my iPad with me (and my wifi hotspot) and got to work on a few projects one night.
Once I got home from the ball fields, I put the boxes together with my tape runner. I left the back of the box open so I could slide the cake in easily. (I put the cake on parchment paper cut to fit, and slid it in using a butter knife) Once the cake was in the box, I tied some baker’s twine to the top and added the free printable tag.
Voila! A fun and easy Teacher Appreciation gift and most of the work can be done on the run!
