With Teacher Appreciation week coming up next week, I thought I’d share some of my favorite teacher cards and projects from the Paper Crafts May/June 2012 issue.
Typically we like to include a grad and teacher section in our May/June issue given the time of year. This year we departed slightly from the teacher rulers and grad hats, to focus on cards and projects with great inspirational quotes. What we got were some wonderful projects with quotes ranging from Nelson Mandela and Ghandi to Shel Silverstein and Conan O’Brien. There is a little something for everyone in this feature. Here are a few of my favorites:
This great card by Sarah J. Moerman can be given to not only a grad but a teacher as well. It’s perfect card to remind our beloved teachers of how important their profession really is.
Carolyn’s card uses a traditional apple with the Yeats quote to create a very fun and cute card that any teacher would love.
The trendy use of crayons as a part of the artwork is so cute. I can see a teacher hanging this in his or her classroom for all to enjoy.
