How To Create This Last Minute Teacher Gift Step by Step
STEP ONE – Print our Teacher Gift Tag Graphic
Add Bright White Premium Heavy Cardstock (we used 110 lb) paper to the printer and print out the template. You should be able to fit four on one page, so that means you can gift more than one teacher easily!
STEP TWO – Cut out the Teacher Gift Tags
Once the tag is printed, cut it out with scissors or a Straight Line Paper Cutter.
If you are using a Cricut Cutting Machine you will simply upload our provided, transparent PNG files labeled “cut files” to Cricut design space. Resize the labels in Cricut design space so they will fit the bag of Milano’s or whatever sweet treat you are providing. From there it’s a simple print and cut on cardstock. If you’re well versed in design space you can even add a hole for the ribbon if you like.
STEP THREE – Add ribbon and attach
Hole punch a circle at the top of the tag, and then string a colorful ribbon through the hole. You can also add a Starbucks gift card or a little something extra if you like.
Tie it to cookies, candies, or anything sweet or tasty! Don’t forget to grab your FREE printable templates at the end of this post! Remember that we have a back to school teacher gift tag and a end of year version so you can use this twice throughout the school year!
