Let your favorite teacher know how special they are with this fun teacher appreciation gift idea. Every teacher needs a planner and now they can add these cute Planner Bookmarks to make it look awesome and help them keep track of the current week.
As a former teacher there are two things teachers can’t live without – their planner and awesome pens! Every teacher I know buys a new planner every school year and we all LOVE starting the year with new pens. So today I’m going to show you a fun teacher gift idea that will go great with their favorite planner that also includes awesome pens I picked up while shopping at Target.
We’re going to make Planner Bookmarks using felt, iron-on vinyl, and elastic.
These Planner Bookmarks are the perfect way for teachers to keep track of what week it is while making sure they don’t miss anything important especially during the first few weeks of school.
Supplies needed to make Planner Bookmarks:
- Fabric Stiffener
- Iron-on Vinyl
- SVG Cut Files
- Vinyl Cutter (I used my Cricut Explore Air 2)
- Fabric Glue
Directions to make Planner Bookmarks:
Step 1: Cut out your vinyl image using your handy dandy vinyl cutter. I used this awesome Teachers are Magical Unicorn SVG Cut File created by the super talented Alexis over at Persia Lou. I also created a fun Queen of My Classroom SVG Cut File that you can download HERE. Unicorns and Queens – two of the best words to describe a teacher:)
Step 2: Cut the felt into whatever shape you want. Then, iron the image onto the felt.
Step 3: Spray the back of the felt with fabric stiffener and let dry.
Step 4: Cut elastic so that it wraps around something the size of a planner/notebook. Glue ends together. Then, glue the felt to the elastic. Let dry over night before using.
That’s it! Isn’t this a great Back-to-School Teacher Gift? They turned out better than I pictured they would.
Pair a Planner Bookmark with these awesome FriXion® Pens and you’ll have one happy teacher. Want to know the best part? Every time your teacher writes with one of these pens or uses her planner, she’ll think of you.
And, let me just tell you – these erasable FriXion pens are awesome! Not only do they write smoothly but they erase too. How great is that? They’re the only pen to give you the power of infinite do-overs, so you can write, erase and re-write all you want. I didn’t know I could love colorful pens more than I already did until I bought these. Write and create fearlessly with FriXion Clicker, ColorSticks and Colors Marker Pens.
