For most schools around the country, teacher appreciation week is May 1-May 5.  I was totally expecting our school to be the same, but yesterday my kids brought home a note that said teacher appreciation week is being celebrated next week.  What?!?  So today, I thought I would share this quick and easy idea I put together.  It was easy to make and can really be done with any container.  Plus, you can put anything inside you think the teacher would enjoy.

Here’s what I used:

– Plastic container (I found mine at Dollar Tree)
Vinyl
– Treats, Teacher Supplies, Gift Cards (anything a teacher would like)
– Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
– Cut File (see link below)

Here is what I did:

I found these cute green plastic bins at the dollar store.  The green color made me think of apples so I created this fun teacher subway art to add to the bin.

I used my electronic cutter to cut out some red, brown, and green vinyl.  After the vinyl was cut, I weeded away the excess and used transfer tape to apply the vinyl to the bin.

Then, I filled it with treats in red and green packaging (to go with the apple theme) and wrapped it all up in cello wrap. I printed out a tag that says “It’s been such a TREAT to have you as my teacher!”

  1. Very cute. With 4 days of school left, I need to get on making something for the teachers too. I love the bins at the dollar store for baskets like this.
    Great job!
