This week is teacher appreciation week, sometimes these things sneak up on us – or on me at least. I love my daughter's teacher and wanted to be sure to send her a little something special. We'll do another thank you gift at the end of the year, but I didn't want to let this week go by without acknowledging how awesome we think she is!
Bees are the mascot of my daughter's school (and they are also my personal mascot too – oh, how I love a bee!) so I thought it would be fun to make something with that theme in mind. So here you have How to Make an Easy DIY Teacher Appreciation Gift with my free Bee-themed Teacher Appreciation SVG file.
This really does come together in minutes with just a few supplies!

HOW TO MAKE AN EASY DIY TEACHER APPRECIATION GIFT
Download + Cut
Download the Bee-themed Teacher Appreciation Gift file from my member's library. (Not a member yet? Join for FREE via the link at the bottom of this post.)
Upload it to the Cricut Design Space software. Size it to your desired size, I sized mine to 5.5″
Place your paper securely on the cutting mat and cut the Bee file out.
Prepare the Backing Card
Cut a piece of cardstock to your desired size for the backing card. I cut mine to 6″ square.
Put it all Together!
Place glue dots in 4 strategic spots (for balance) on the back of the Bee cut file. I like the 3-D glue dots to give dimension and extra interest to the card.
Center the Bee cut file (with glue dots) onto the backing card.
Punch holes in the top two corners. Run a piece of thin ribbon through the holes and tie a knot to keep the ribbon from slipping back through the holes.
And there you have it! A charming Teacher Appreciation Gift – or really a card to give any time you want to say thank you! – that comes together in a hurry? Check out this FREE SVG file to create a beautiful card FAST! This Cricut SVG file will have you crafting and gifting in no time!
