Teachers are a hugely important, and hugely undervalued, part of our children’s lives. That’s why I love to participate in Teacher Appreciation Week every year. I know we parents are all extremely busy, but it doesn’t have to take much time to show a teacher she is appreciated.
A few weeks back I joined in with 30 Minute Crafts and The Country Chic Cottage for another one of their Craft Lightning series. This time around we focuses on creating Teacher Appreciation Gifts… in under 15 minutes! Here is the final round-up of all 52 tutorials!

Laura Kelly says
Thank you for sharing my idea! These are all so totally awesome sauce fabulous!!!
Thanks for the great tutorial!
I absolutely love this and am planning on making these as welcome gift bags for my sister’s wedding. What kind of paint did you use? Are of my paint is water soluble, and I am worried that the paint will eventually run or fade if water gets on it. Did you seal the paint somehow afterwards? Thank you!!!
I am sorry, I don’t know which tutorial you are asking about!
