Teacher Appreciation Card by Susan Tutt

Look for this card in the November 2011issue of Cards.

Today we are celebrating Teachers and what better way than with a wonderful card!  
I created this card using a file folder cut down to the size of a 6x6 card. Using  KI paper lace as a mask gives my card a fun background.  I then layered a tag,  patterned papers and 7 Gypsies gaffer tape. 

To finish off this cute card I took some school themed brads that I had and turned them into charms.  Simply bend the legs off your brads and punch a hole with your piercer and insert a jump ring and there you have an instant charm!

Show your child's teacher how much you appreciate all they do, with a card.  I hope this gets the creative juices going!  Be sure to share what you create with us...we would love to see your projects!!

  1. Thanks for the idea of using up those brads. The card is adorable and I'm sure any teacher would be happy to get it. And I'm pretty sure I have that gaffer tape in brown and have never opened it...I think I'll pull it out for a few teacher's cards.
