Teacher Gift Idea – Printable

In honor of all the wonderful teachers, I wanted to share an easy gift idea for Teacher Appreciation Week.

As a teacher who loves notecards and subway art, I decided to combine the two.  Print yours out HERE or use Tagxedo to create personalized subway art in the shape of an apple. 

I typed in different words to describe a teacher.  To personalize it, I include the name of Connor’s teacher.  To make her name larger and stand out, I typed it in 5 times.  You can do this to any of the words.

Once you’ve typed in your words, you can play around with all the different fonts, colors and layout options.  

I set my layout options as the following:

  • Emphasis:  40%
  • Maximum Word Count: 130
  • Tightness:  75

I just played around with all the different setting.  There are so many different options, shapes, colors, etc.  It is a little addicting,  Save your artwork as a jpg and you are ready to start creating all kinds of things.

To create the notecards I inserted the two pictures into Microsoft Word and printed them out.  Then I cut the paper in half and folded the cards in half. 

Have fun creating an easy gift idea that is personalized.  I can guarantee that every teacher will love receiving these notecards.

Don’t have time to make one yourself?  No worries.  I’ve created a set of two that you can print out here.  Print out as many as you want, cut along the dotted line and fold in half.  Pair with matching envelopes and you have a great gift for any teacher.  I made the word “teacher” enlarged so it can be given to any teacher.

The free printable will look like the following when it is printed.  The final note card will measure 5.5×8.5 and when folded will measure 4.25×5.5.

Teachers can always use note cards so enjoy making these subway art note cards and make a teacher’s day!
