Pinterest Pick Friday ~ Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea


I am very excited about todays post. I’ve been planning this for a while now. I like to give teachers cutesy gifts to go along with gift cards. This year our school is doing a whole week celebration for the teachers and each day has a different theme.


Monday isΒ  Nice Note Day. The students write their teacher a note. Tuesday is Treat your Teacher Day. The students bring their teacher a candy bar or drink or something to show them they’re thankful. Wednesday is a special luncheon for the teachers. Thursday is Classroom Item Day where the students bring in items the teachers are in need of (the teachers provided lists for the parents of things they need and their favorite candy bar, etc. to make it easier on us:) I love this!) Friday is Recipe Day. The school sent home a packet for the kids to fill out with their favorite recipes on them and the teacher will compile a binder to use at home. I thought that was a really cute idea! πŸ™‚

ANYWAY, I decided my little cutesy gift I’m showing you today can be given to their teachers on Thursday, Classroom Item Day because it’s a notepad. I’m also going to buy some of the items they wrote on their list to go along with it. I haven’t bought them yet, so today you just get to see my cutesy project I made.

So, here’s the pin I based this idea on:


And here’s what I did:


What do you think?!! I’m in LOVE with it!! I didn’t think it would turn out this good!



There’s a little note that can be pulled out to reveal a cute little saying that I came up with. Can you tell I’m proud of myself? I usually have to find other peoples ideas for sayings and cutesy gifts and this one was ALL me! (Well, mostly!)


And this is what the inside looks like. I bought 3 of these in a pack on Pick Your Plum at the beginning of the school year. I’m so excited to finally be able to use them!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I have the winners of the giveaway picked so if you go to the giveaway post you can see if you won! I’ll post the official post tomorrow. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

    1. I was thinking about doing a tutorial, but ended up not having enough time. I will try to put it together for next week. I’m so glad you like it! Thanks!

  2. […] If you’ve been following my blog in the last week you know that I’ve shared a teacher appreciation gift idea. Yesterday I shared a tutorial on how to make a cover for the notepads. Today, I’m going to share with you a file I made with the Silhouette Studio program to make my notepad cover. Having the Silhouette makes it a lot easier, but you don’t have to have one to make this gift! […]
