You Put our School on the Map-- Free Teacher Appreciation Printable

     ♥

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! My daughter is finishing up her first year of school. She has absolutely loved every minute of it. This is due, in large part, to her amazing teachers. Her school's PTA rocks Teacher Appreciation Week; they decorate and have daily raffles for prizes, for which they announce the winners over the PA system, and the kids all cheer when their teacher wins a prize. The PTA also buys the teachers a little gift for every day of the week. Each day is a surprise, and all the teachers eagerly check their boxes in the morning to see what the PTA elves have left for them. I signed up for this Monday to kick off the week, so when all 120 staff members go to their boxes this morning they will be greeted with one of these little candy boxes:




Rudy, from 1012designs and Boss Graphic, Doe a Deery's fabulous first sponsor, was so incredibly kind to make this printable for our fabulous readers. He was awesome to collaborate with! I shared my idea of the slogan and boxes of theater candy wrapped in vintage maps.  (I scored at the Goodwill with a vintage atlas and road map for a buck a piece). He designed this amazing printable that we are passing on to our readers for FREE!  I used a 2.5 inch circle punch for the printable and then backed with a three inch scallop punch in an rainbow of colors to make it pop. I then added some ribbon (thanks CL) to make it look polished. I love that by using pages from an old atlas you get the look of high end wrapping paper, but only pay a pittance.

Thanks again to all you amazing teachers! We appreciate you more than you will ever know!
