Simple Teacher’s Apple Gift. My little guy started 5th grade this year and we have been so lucky to have some truly amazing teachers for him since he started school. This year, his second grade teacher moved up to teach fifth grade and we couldn’t be happier to have her as his teacher again. Since she is in a new classroom, we wanted to give her a special gift this year.
My son saw this ceramic apple at HomeGoods recently and said it would be a cool apple for the teacher, because it wouldn’t go bad like the fruit does (gotta love the 5th grade logic). Then, he asked me to “Cricut it”…apparently Cricut is a noun and a verb…
I was happy to oblige his request, especially since the new Cricut Maker was just delivered! I thought I loved my Explore Air 2, and I totally did and still do, but, y’all the Maker is AH-MAZ-ING!! Unbelievably, it is more precise than the Air 2, and those are crazy precise! I cut out my son’s teacher’s name using Cricut outdoor grade vinyl. It is less than one inch tall and only 2.5″ wide, the font is narrow, but the Maker cut it out like a champ! (I honestly chose a thin font to see what my Maker could do…I sometimes had some trouble with tiny thin fonts with my other Cricut machines)
When I went to apply the vinyl to the apple, I realized I was out of transfer tape, so, I used a piece of Washi tape. Simply stick the tape to a t-shirt to make it slightly less sticky and then put it on the vinyl like you would transfer tape.
I washed my apple with a rubbing alcohol swab and let it air dry before I stuck the vinyl on it.
Now, it’s ready for Mrs. B’s desk!
