Teacher Appreciation Day -- say thank you with these fun #DIY cards #TeacherAppreciationDay

National Teacher Appreciation Day is around the corner, and nothing says "Thank You" quite like a gift from the heart. 

On average, teachers can spend up to $485 out of pocket each year. That adds up to over $1.6 billion in teacher spending annually, just to supply core items for their students to have the tools they need to learn and be creative. Help your child say an extra special thank you for all the hours they put in long after the closing bell rings with handmade cards!

For my DIY Teacher Appreciation Cards, I used the Yoobi Color Layering Markers, Yoobi Gel Pens, blank cards and lip balm.  You can used any brand marker or gel pens!

    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)
    • Yoobi Color Layering Markers (or any brand of markers)
    • Yoobi Gel Pens (or any brand of 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 marker to lay down  a color and create the design.    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.

    Apple Card
    • Blank note cards and envelopes (a 25 pack cost me about $4.99)
    • Yoobi Color Layering Markers (or any brand marker)
    • Yoobi Gel Pens (or any brand gel pens)
    Draw the shape of an apple on a card.   I drew it in pencil first and then outlined it with the Yoobi 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!
