School Teacher’s Gift | Silhouette Cork Sheets
As the end of term approaches, the question of what to give as a teacher’s gift arises. I hope this quick and easy idea helps. This frame was very quick to make and I think would make a treasured gift from any child.
I have used cork sheets which are 5″ x 7″ thin sheets of cork adhered to a thin fabric backing which has adhesive on. After cutting your shapes you are able to peel them from the backing sheet and add to your project.
Preparing Your Design
After deciding to make a frame as a teacher’s gift I browsed through teacher related designs and found one that was a split apple – perfect for what I needed it for.
I opened an A4 design space and drew an 8″ x 10″ rectangle as that was the size of my frame.
I then added the split apple to this.
Thanks Mrs Saunders
I was really impressed with how clean the cork cut. It did have a few cotton strands left on the stars but these were easy to snip off.
I don’t have any school aged children so am going to give this to my friend who is an Art Teacher as I think the phrase is perfect for her job.
