I must say my girls have the most awesome teacher this year. I am so very grateful for that! Just think about how much time and energy they all put into loving on and teaching our kids. The time that I am unable to be with my girls I am so thankful knowing they are still taken great care of. For that, I think anytime is a great time to say THANK YOU! But since it is Teacher appreciation week, I figured this was the perfect time to give their teacher and the aide in their class a gift! So since vinyl is one of my favorite things, I made them each a cup and filled them with candy. Because who can’t use a cup and candy! Right?
I use a program called Sure Cuts a Lot along with my cricut. If you don’t have that program, you could still use your cartridges to accomplish the same thing. But I’ll be honest I don’t know how to do the shadow without it.
Start by typing your word for the saying. I used the font Segoe Print. It measures 3.61 x 3.22. The word TEACHER is a shadow blackout rounded. Make sure to group your words and then meld them so they will cut out together where they overlap. I cut out my saying and the teacher’s name in turquoise. Once it cuts, use your contact paper to transfer onto your cup. Press down hard to get out all the bubbles before you pull off the contact paper.
I used white for the shadow for the teacher’s name and also for the word TEACHER so it would stand out more. I cut these out together and then used my contact paper again to transfer them onto the cup. You can use any size and font that will fit on your cup. I made the shadow on the teacher’s name 3 x 3. Then used 2.77 x 2.74 for the name. This is just what size it ended up when I made the shadow a 3 x 3. Again I used a shadow blackout rounded measuring a 10 since I thought it matched the font well.
Now do the same starting with the white shadow teacher’s name and follow with the teacher’s name. Super easy but so special!
Fill it with candy and let your kiddos make a cute card! A perfect teacher gift!
