This week has been a week all about teachers. It has been Teacher Appreciation Week. My kids have such great teachers. I made each of their teachers these “finger print trees”. The Preschool Tree is fingers and the 5th grade tree is their thumb prints. The kids loved making these.
First, I cut a tree using brown vinyl, my Expression 2 and the Cricut Craft Room. I then cut out the words. To add something extra, I cut out a red vinyl heart and embossed it with Swiss Dots. I applied it all onto an 18×20 piece of canvas. I then went to the kids classrooms and got each of their finger prints with green ink. It’s really easy!
I buy all my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. Make sure you check out their website and blog. I will be featured on their blog tomorrow!
As I have said before, teacher are so special and play such important roles in out children’s lives. Please, thank a teacher!
