Apple Card
  • Blank note cards and envelopes (a 25 pack cost me about $4.99)
  • Markers
  • Gel Pens
Draw the shape of an apple on a card.   I drew it in pencil first and then outlined it with the markers.  Write in different words to describe a teacher. If you want to personalize it, include the name  of your child's teacher!

So get creative and make sure the teachers in your life know what they mean to you and your kids!

Lip Balm Cards
  • 3 pack of Chap Ice Lip Balm ($3 at Five Below) 
  • Blank note cards and envelopes (a 25 pack cost me about $4.99)
  • Markers
  • Gel Pens
First of all you will need to open the lip balm and use the lid to draw a circle you plan on cutting out. Then the fun comes with deciding on what you want your circles to become! I opted for a flowers and hot air balloons.

Use the  makers to create  your design.  If needed you can always use a pencil to draw on your designs first.   Then use the Gel Pens and Glitter Gel Pens for smaller areas and to create accents. After you are done cut out the circle and twist in the lip balm.
