🍎✏️🎒*Classroom Heroes Deserve Special Cheers* 🍎✏️🎒

With the school season back in full swing, let’s take a moment to appreciate those who are shaping the future – our teachers! 😊 They work hard, play an essential role in our lives, and now it’s time to say ‘Thank You, Teacher’ in a way that’s both fun and functional. I’ve come up with these awesome ‘Teacher Survival Kits’ with Stampin’ Up! stamps: Apple Harvest, Every day Thanks (pencil) and Next Destination (backpack). 

In this video class, I’ll be diving into exact steps on crafting these boxes, including dividers, interactive spinner cards, and coloring with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Let’s crowdsource ideas on what to fill these kits with. 🤔

Here’s my top 10 list of items to add to your Teacher Survival Kit:
1️⃣ Hand Sanitizer – for germ-free hands 👐
2️⃣ Pain Reliever – because teaching can be a headache, literally! 🙆‍♀️
3️⃣ Band-Aids – for those paper cut days 🩹
4️⃣ Hand Lotion – because sanitizers can dry their hands out 🤲
5️⃣ Tide Pen – to rescue them from surprise coffee spills ☕
6️⃣ Lysol Spray – for a fresh and clean workspace 🧽
7️⃣ Post It Note – for impromptu notes 📋
8️⃣ Elastics – because you never know! 💁‍♀️
9️⃣ Breath Mints – to stay fresh during those parent-teacher meetings 🗣️
🔟 Amazon Gift Card – for them to buy whatever they need or want 🎁

Other ideas: Tums roll / antacid, Chapstick/lip balm, Paper Clips, Elastics, etc.

Have you tried this design? I love to see your creations! Be sure to share them on  #shareyourcrafts post every Saturday on my Facebook Page

I had a lot of fun filling the box with different goodies. I used the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper for the box lid and the front of the card.

The pencil image is from the Stampin’ Up Everyday Thanks Stamp Set. The apple is from the Apple Harvest Stamp Set. 

The Party & Cracker Treat Box dies work perfectly in this box size. Like a gift inside a gift. 

I spaced the divider inserts based on the supplies I placed in it. 

Fill these boxes with Hand Sanitizer, Pain Reliever, Band Aids, Hand Lotion, Tide Pen, Lysol Spray, Paper Slips, Elastics, Neosporin, Breath Mints, Amazon Gift Cards and more.

The smaller items like Advil, band aids, hand wipes, etc fit inside the cracker boxes.

I tied the hand sanitizer on top.

The spinner card is fun and interactive. The Stampin’ Up Give It a Whirl dies make it really easy to make. 

I used the backpack from the Next Destination, apple from the Apple Harvest and pence from the Everyday Thanks stamp sets. 

The spiral cuts are from the Gorgeously Made dies and lined paper is from the Delightfully Eclectic designer series paper.

I will share instructions for the rest of my Teacher Gift collection over the next week.


This box template also fits 4 Cracker & Treat boxes. Here’s another version I made with the Countryside Inn Suite. Get a tutorial for this box and crackers here

I made these adorable snowman with the Cracker & Treat Box Die. Get a tutorial for these snowman here. 

I used the backpack from the Stampin Up Next Destination stamp set for the spinner card. Here are some double point fun fun cards that I’ve created with this set. Get the tutorial for them here.
