Time for Some Teacher Appreciation Video Tutorial
Here is some Teacher Appreciation Ideas!
Here are the steps I took make the Teacher Appreciation Gifts
Step 1 – Open the SVG file in your cutting software (note: if you have the free version of Silhouette studio you will need the DFX files). Size the file elements as need for the project you are making. I used weeding boxes to help me weed my vinyl. This is especially important when doing the key chains. Cut your vinyl out. Make sure all your pieces are cut before ejecting from the cutting machine.
Step 2 – I started with the journal and cut those pieces first. Then while the keychain vinyl was cutting I worked on the journal. Weed your vinyl. Once that is done take your transfer tape and apply it to the vinyl. Then I used parchment paper and applied my vinyl\transfer to that. Decided where i wanted it placed and then removed the parchment paper and squeegee down the vinyl. I did this same step for the second word and the applied my accents.
Step 3 – Now for the keychains. I cut the wands off of the lip gloss tubes. Then I removed the eraser for the top. I took a small about amount of E6000 and applied it to the top and put the eraser back on the top. Let dry. I then took the baby oil and glitter (make sure your glitter is ready to use) I put the baby oil in the tube. Do not fill it up all the way. Then add your glitter. I used a piece of paper underneath to help with clean up. Now…there is such a thing as too much glitter!! You want them to galaxy float. Now decide if you need any more oil. I need a little air bubble at the top. The tubes I recommend have a plug that comes with them. BONUS! I put the plug in and then added some E6000 glue and put the cap on. You want to glue them shut to make sure you dont have an accident! Once this is done wipe your pencils with alcohol and cotton pad to get off any left over glitter and stuff. Let dry.
Step 4 – Now weed your vinyl. Lessons learned. The bigger words you can weed easily. However, the smaller ones were a bugger! Reverse weeding did help a little, however, I applied the vinyl with weeding box to the pencil and then weeded it. Be careful not to scratch them though Once I figured this out it went relatively quickly.
Step 5 – Now to finish the key chains. Take your needle nose and eye screw and attach it to the top. You want to make sure you go into the metal of the cap for good hold. I then opened the eye screw and fed in the key chain. Closed off the screw. Next take your jump ring and attach to the jump ring at the top. Add you tassel and apple charm. Close your ring. Now admire how stinking cute they are!!!
Step 6 – Wine Glass. Cut out your vinyl. While that is cutting I took the glass, alcohol and the cotton pads and cleaned the glass. Let dry. Weed your vinyl. Once that is done I actually put the words together before applying to the glass. I used parchment paper again to line everything up. Then used parchment paper to apply the vinyl to the glass. Add your accents. How is is that!!! It’s so cute and fun!!
