Another Teacher Appreciation Card

I made this Teacher Appreciation card for Cordelia’s fifth grade teacher.  She really is going above and beyond for Cordelia this year.  It is back to school time and teachers need to know they are important too.  Show your childs Teacher appreciation for all they do with this card and add a little humor to their day.

I made this corner stand up card with some old paper I had laying around but the rainbows worked out beautiful.  It was just regular printer paper. Just goes to show that you can use anything when making cards.  I moved the parts around the mat to get the parts of the paper I wanted.

You will need:

Paper Selection
This card can be made with any paper.  I used some regular stationary paper with a rainbow on it to make the overlays on this card.


Cutting the Teacher Appreciation Card

The Cricut will do all the writing.  I used a black gel pen.

To line up where on the page to cut your parts so that you get the effect you want is easy.  I wanted the rainbow from my paper. To do this you need to print or cut the design out of plain paper.

Then lay them over the patterned paper where you want.  Measure from the top corner where you placed your parts.  Then when you go to cut on the patterned paper move the parts to where they are on your pattern.  For instance if you want the rainbows arrange the parts on your paper and then make the mat look like the pattern.

Assembling the Teacher Appreciation Card

When the cutting is finished, re-crease the lines and make sure the card folds properly.  Glue all the embellishments in the proper place.  Fold the empty square under the other square and glue it lightly.

I never figured out how to put this card in an envelope so that the reciepient would understand how to put it together so I guess I will have to give it to Cordelia’s Teacher assembled.  It does fit in a square envelope though if you can figure it out.  And if you do please tell me.
