Personalized Teacher Gifts

    Posted by  ·  April 18, 2013

    It is so easy to personalize it with the Silhouette Cameo! I used the Cameo to make some personalized gifts for our teacher!

    It is super simple to do. Gather items to be personalized. We used a fabric lined basket and metal pail. The Silhouette vinyl works great on metal, plastic and wood. The Silhouette Fusible Interfacing is great for fabric!

    Size fonts from your computer in the Silhouette Studio to fit the area you want monogramed and then cut!

    Stick the vinyl to the hard sufaces and iron the letters to fabric.

    Think of all the things you can personalize for your teacher.

      Wow just stumbled on this website looking for some inexpensive teacher appreciation ideas. I am entering as it would be great to win these and have both go the school. Currently I am President of the Parents Teacher group at Forbes Middle school in Georgetown, Texas. I was also President back a few years ago when my oldest was in middle school. The teachers have wanted a die cut or other cutting system for ever, but there are no funds for it. Our group operates on a tiny budget, we make a dollar on every membership and do not do any fundraising at all. We rely on Parent volunteers and donations to host a monthly lunch for the teachers or do snacks. We put our funds back to the kids by providing Academic UIL contests, Art contests, and fund their end of year celebrations. It would be so wonderful to win this system, I know that they could do so much with them for manipulatives, math helpers, school spirit and etc...Thank you for your consideration and also for this great website with so many resources. Sincerely, Charli G

      Oh my...what a wonderful giveaway. I come from a very small rural town and to be able to gift a machine like this to my Grandson's Kindergarten teacher would be an amazing thing to do! My daughter went to Kindergarten in the very same classroom and most of her former teachers are now teaching the next generation. It would be so cool to be able to present these hard working teachers with such an amazing tool to share!

      This is a very generous giveaway. As a former teacher myself, I know how hard teachers work and how much of what they do is taken for granted. Anything that can make their job easier is always appreciated! I have the perfect vocal music teacher-friend that would put this to excellent use! She puts soooo much time into her lessons and loves her kiddos to no end. xo

      How generous! I know exactly which teacher I would share with! We live in a small community and getting extras like this for our schools is very difficult. Kathy-the wonderful teacher-would use the Cameo to help her students grasp math and science. I would teach her how they could make books or the students to keep as a reminder of the mostcaring teacher they will ever have! She spends so much of her own money to get the kids what they need to be successful in school.
      For me winning this would let me be able to continue crafting while my hand heals from surgery to repair 3 tendons and 2 nerves that I damaged when a window broke and sliced my wrist open! I had 18 stitches and misse the artery on both sides by mere millimeters. The hand surgeon told me that I may lose use of some or all off my fingers because the emergency room that I went to initially did not provide adequate treatment.
      I will not know if the surgery was successful for at least 6 weeks. There is still a chance that I will lose use of my hand. Thank you for a chance to win a tool that will allow me to continue doing something I love! To see photos of my injury check out my facebook page.

She spends so much of her own time and money on her class making it look good and making sure the kids have fun. She so deserves a silhouette!

      What a great school-wide gift this would make! Bulletin boards, student displays and parent communication have all made such leaps forward lately- it's wonderful to see creativity take off again! Thanks for the chance to win these wonderful tools!

      we have an amazing art teacher at the school I work at. She is often buying supplies out of her own pocket. She doesn't even take her lunch with the rest of the teachers.She would rather be in her room having lunch with students, who just go there during lunch because they want to spend time with her.

      I would live to give this to a friend that is a teacher. She is always looking for new and exciting things in her classroom!

      I don't have school age children, but there are plenty of local schools in the area. I could give the Cameo to one of them for all of their great teachers to use!
