Perfect ‘Thank you Teacher’ Gifts


My Tuesday Trio this week is a lovely Trio of gifts that would be ideal as Thank you gifts for a teacher.

It consists of a Thank you card, a trio of tealights and a mini post it note. The good thing is that these are relatively inexpensive to make too, which is always good.

2016-07-04-19-04-11-200All of these items are made with Sweet Sugarplum card stock, DSP and ink.

The card is made with a layer of Whisper White then a layer of DSP. The DSP is 5.5cm high. The plain band is 1cm wide and the Bow Builder punch was used to create the bow. The sentiment is stamped from Thankful Thoughts.


The Trio of tealights is a base of Sweet Sugarplum card stock and the lid is DSP. Both lid and base measure 6″ x 3″ and scored at 0.75″ on all sides. Make sure when scoring the lid that you place a piece of cardstock along the edge to act as a ‘shim’. This makes your lid fit snuggly.

I used a 1.25″ circle punch to punch the circle out of the lid and added a piece of Window Sheet with glue dots. Fold and burn score lines then cut the wedges from the four corners. I used a small piece of Tear n Tape to adhere the tabs on both base and lid.

Finally I tied bakers twine round the box (once I put three tealights inside which I got from Ikea) and added a sentiments from Thoughtful Banners and punched out with the Classic Label Punch.


The mini post it base measures 2.25″ x 4.5″. I scored at 2.25, 2.75 and 3.5″. Fold and burnish. Cut a square of cardstock 2.25 x 2.25″ and a square of DSP 2 x 2″ and adhere to the 2.25″ square.

Where you scored the 3.5″ line adhere your DSP panel to the last section after the score line. Line up top of DSP panel with 2.75″ score line but only add adhesive to the bottom half. This allows the panel to be propped up behind the post it. I used the Classic Label punch and the Thoughtful Banners stamp to the panel. Adhere the post it to the base.

There you have a lovely little Trio to send as thanks to someone, which you can make in any colour you like.
