It may not seem like it right now, but we are definitely in the home stretch towards the end of the school year. Whether you are preparing to have your kids home all summer long or you are getting ready to send your graduate off into the world, the end of the school is a time of transition. But your students are prepared for all those new experiences because they have had great teachers guiding them all through the school year. As a former teacher, I like to think I do a good job of appreciating what my kids’ teachers do for them. I like to share my appreciation with notes and gifts, especially at the end of the year. I used my Cricut to make pretty paper-cut teacher art that reminds teachers that we are so thankful for their caring hearts.
CRICUT PAPER CUT ART FOR TEACHER
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS TEACHER APPRECIATION GIFT
I used a Cricut file designed by my friend Jen from 100 Directions. You can use this cut file for a wide variety of projects, not just paper art. The design would be beautiful on tote bags, shirts, and banners as well!

HOW TO MAKE A PAPER CUT TEACHER GIFT

Cricut Paper Cut Teacher Gift
- Open the Cricut project and resize the items to suit your project.
- Place cardstock onto a Cricut cutting mat and load the mat into your machine.
- Select the correct weight of cardstock from the materials list, then cut the design.
- Carefully remove the cut paper design from the mat.
Peel the mat away from the paper (rather than peeling the paper away from the mat) to avoid curling the paper.
- Use weeding tools to remove any small pieces of cardstock that remain in the design.
- Glue the design to a piece of coordinating cardstock.
- Add the artwork to a frame.
