Flowers and Feathers DIY Gift Box {A-Z Series, “F”}

I have this super cute friend who I adore! She is the type that the second a person pops into her head, she acts on the thought which typically results in a “I was just thinking about you and wanted to make sure you were having a good day” phone call or a sweet little “Just Because” gift left on your front door step! Referring to her as thoughtful is a true understatement. And today, Kim from seven thirty three, is sharing a project that is a perfect “Just Because” gift! We are celebrating the letter “F” today and Kim nailed her home work assignment with this adorable “F”lowers and “F”eathers Gift Box!! Enjoy!

Hi everyone! My name is Kim and I blog over at seven thirty three, a creative blog full of kids crafts, party ideas, free printables and more! Today I am going to be sharing with you a Teacher Gift inspired by the letter F.

F is for Flowers and Feathers!

My kids go back to school in late August, so I’ve already been working on what to get their teachers. I decided on something simple and that I KNOW they need – a bookstore gift card.  I feel like this way they can either choose to spend it on themselves OR they can put it toward the classroom. I always try to give a useful gift to my children’s teachers. In the past I’ve done personalized notepads, fry boxes filled with goodies,  and a coffee cup filled with goodies. I still want to put my personal stamp on whatever we give to my children’s teacher to show that we appreciate all of their hard work – I just want it to be something that the teacher can put to use.

Of course I can’t just hand them a gift card in an envelope. That’s SO not happening! Instead I made an adorable gift box for the gift card, decorated it with washi tape and a flower and attached a cute little tag. It’s cute and it’s useful!

Thank You for Helping Me Grow Gift Tag from seven thirty three

I used my Silhouette CAMEO to make the box. Don’t have a CAMEO? You could either buy a small gift box, or print off my Petal Gift Card Holder Template and apply the same concept to that.

Place some tissue paper into the box and put the card inside.

Now grab some washi tape or ribbon and wrap it around the top lid of your box like in the picture above.

Next, adhere a feather pouf to the top of the box with either glue dots or hot glue.

Thanks for helping me grow Gift Tag

Head over to my blog and download my “Thank you for helping me grow” Gift Tag.  Print the tags onto 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock. Choose which color tag you want and cut it out along the gray line. Use a small dab of hot glue and adhere it to the box underneath the feather.

That’s it! Add a gift card and you have a super simple, super cute AND super useful teacher appreciation gift!
