Teacher Appreciation Card Printables

Happy Monday everyone! 

I was away at SNAP last week through the weekend so now I am home recovering and hoping to get back into blogging even though it probably won't be full time until after our move to Wisconsin in June but I will try to actually craft here and there and share some posts with you. 

And I have another new one for you again today!! YAY! 

The end of the school year is fast approaching and along with that comes teacher appreciation gifts. 
I have a printable card for you today that you can include in a flower gift and be ready for teacher gifts in no time!!

 I designed two different cards that you could use with your flowers. 

I created each as 4x6 so you can print them that size OR print them smaller. I printed them 3x5 in size. 
You would probably want to play with your computer settings as well. I did shrink to fit to ensure nothing was cut off.

 I used small dowel rods and attached the cards to the dowel with regular scotch tape.

 Then, you just have to push it down into the dirt of the flower arrangement.

 I also used two pieces of felt and twine to wrap it around the plastic container that the flower came in to dress it up a little. That is totally optional though!

 You can also slip the card into a fun succulent arrangement as well!


Below you will find each card available for you to download.

I live in Denver with my husband, two kids, and dog. We love to camp, hike, ski, and spend as much time outside as possible. We try to stay healthy and eat well, so on TMTOMH I share lots of natural living tips and (mostly) healthy homemade recipes that my kids actually eat. We have a very compact garden in our tiny yard and I share my small space gardening tips and recipes I make using our harvests. this is one of my favorites!
