Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week
Give Your V.I.T. (Very Important Teacher) Something From the Heart
Teacher Appreciation Week is the perfect opportunity to offer much-needed gratitude for all that our teachers do. While there are many ways to honor teachers’ contributions, I always try to come up with something extra special — and this year is no different. I decided to repurpose a
Hiland Dairy Sour Cream container into a teacher’s pet apple gift card holder. Let’s get crafting! Teacher’s Pet Apple Gift Card Holder
What You’ll Need:
Hiland Dairy Sour Cream container Red spray paint
Spray-on sealer, clear
Green, brown and cream-colored construction paper
Rinse each container with warm, soapy water. Towel-dry completely.
In a well-ventilated area, spray-paint the outside of the lid and container, completely covering the label. Allow to dry completely.
Tip: I used three coats of paint.
Spray on a coat of sealer over the red paint. Allow to dry completely.
Using scissors, cut out a brown stem, a green leaf and brown apple seeds from the construction paper.
Using the bottom of the container, trace a circle on the cream-colored construction paper and cut around the outline.
Glue the round circle into the bottom of the container, then adhere the seeds in the middle.
Glue the stem and leaf onto the lid.
Add your teacher’s favorite gift card.
You can easily add a name tag by cutting out a rectangle from the cream-colored construction paper and tying it to the apple container with twine.
