"Summer Social" Guest Project — Back to School Teacher Gift {printable}

11 Aug
What an honor to be a part of Jen’s Summer Social! Jen and I have been blogging friends for a long time (in bloggy years) and have just recently been able to get to know each other better as we work on the SNAP! Conference team. I can tell you that Jen is just who you think she is from reading her blog, and yes, she really is that nice! I’m pretty sure you could look a long while and never meet a nicer person.
My name is Kendra and I keep a blog called My Insanity. It is where I share all of my crazy/creative ideas. 
And the insanity abounds, but I do like simple projects, too, like this one for a sweet start to the new school year.
Last week my kids went back to school! If yours aren’t already there, undoubtedly they will be shortly. Have you met the teachers yet?
Here is a simple and sweet idea for something to take to the teacher on the 1st day of school or a Back to School night, that will leave an impression, without going overboard.

When my kids went to meet their teachers they handed them each an apple with special teacher sticker.
The teachers looked a bit surprised, but genuinely pleased by the gift. Turns out, most teachers aren’t actually given apples as gifts in real life. But I want to change that! What better to give them? Practical, portable {edible}, and now personal! (This idea was inspired by these clever valentines we gave last year, thanks to these great printable stickers from Twig & Thistle.)
I designed the apple sticker graphic and then printed out a sheet of stickers on label paper (I used Avery 5408 round 3/4″ labels). I tried to create a printable sheet of stickers for you to download here today, but couldn’t figure out how to keep the formatting just right (any advice for me about making printables on label templates?).

So if you’d like stickers for apples for your teachers, click on the apple graphic above, and right click and save it to your computer. You can download templates from Avery for the kind of labels you are using. Then fill in the circles with this graphic. This specific template is meant for use in Microsoft Word. If you don’t want to mess with templates, just get full-sized sheets of sticker paper and place the graphics all over. You might be able to punch them with a sharp circle punch, or just cut them out with scissors.

 Hope this helps you start off the new school year on the right foot with your child’s teacher!
Thanks Jen, for having me!
Thanks Kendra — what a cute First Day of School gift idea!!
  Kendra is so creative — I love her ideas!! 
I love this Bandana Tablecloth!!
Kendra also throws FAB parties:
Check out these Nail Polish invitations Kendra made for her daughter’s Spa Day Birthday Party!
And I’m loving this Rainbow Cake she made for her son’s 1st birthday party

Kendra can do it all– Craft, Bake and Throw a Great Party!!
Pop over and see the fabulous ideas at Me & My Insanity!!
Have a fabulous day!!

"Summer Social" Guest Project — Free Fourth of July Party Printables!! {tutorial}

23 Jun
 
Hi TT&J Readers! I’m thrilled to be a guest today as part of Jen’s Summer Social Series, while she lives it up in London. I love Jen, and I hope she’s enjoying herself!

I’m Kami, and I run the blog: NoBiggie.

It’s a lifestyle blog that includes all my favorites: craftscookingthrifting and my family.
 

I’m a big fan of the 4th of July, and today I thought it would be fun to share with you a free printable that can help make the 4th more festive. Here’s what the free download looks like when you print it out.
 
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
– scissors
– some sort of 4 inch circle cutter (paper craft punch, cutting dies or scissors will work too)
– a paper slicer for straight lines (scissors can work here too, if that is all you have)
– a low temp hot glue gun (this speeds up the process)
– a stapler
– cellophane bags
– red, white and blue candy

 


Step 1. Gather all your supplies to start
Step Step 2. Use your paper slicer to cut the turquoise strips
Step Step 3. Use your circle cutter to cut the 4 inch circle – I used a big craft punch from Michaels
Step Step 4. Use your scissors to cut out the tiny flag

 

To make the Paper Medallion:


Step 1. To make one paper medallion – use two turquoise strips
Step 2. Accordian fold the strips: back and forth folds
Step 3. Adhere the two strips together making one long strip and then adhere again forming a circle
Step 4. Add a big spot of hot glue to the center

 

Next – hot glue all three pieces together.

 

Here’s the fun part: the candy!

I found all these red, white and blue candies in the bulk food section of my local grocery stores. (Winco and Maceys…if you live in Utah)
 

Now add a few of each type of candy to each bag. For fun, you can also add something fun for the 4th like a party popper. Once everything is in the bag, fold over the top and staple it closed.

 

I love that you can really make this printable paper craft your own. As you can see, out of the 4 that I made, they are all different. The one below is my favorite. 🙂

 

You could also stick one on a giant lollipop OR you could add a toothpick, and make them cupcakes toppers. 
Get creative and have fun!

 
If you make these, I would to see it! You can upload it to the NoBiggie Facebook page.

Happy 4th!
Thanks Kami — those are so fun for the Fourth!!! 

Thanks for being my Summer Social guest! 

Kami is one of my very favorite people in blogland and in real life.

I love her ideas!! 

{Check out the cute Train Party she threw for her little guy this Summer}

{I love this Make Stuff art that she made for her craft room}

{And Kami turned her living room into her craft room – I love that!!}

I could go on and on, but let me just leave it at this — she is wonderful!!!
Be sure to check out No Biggie and say hi!!!

PS — We went to the museums yesterday  – they were amazing! And I brought some crafting things with me to make a little journal of our trip. I have been working on it every night. I just can’t stop crafting – lol 

Have a great day!!
