Button Apple Canvas Teacher Gift 17



 

Personalised notebooks.Since the boys were first at school we have always made a teacher gift for their teachers both at Christmas and at the end of the school year.  This year we decided to make a button apple canvas teacher gift.

I know that not everyone agrees with giving teachers gifts, but I decided that I really wanted to give the teachers a small token of pout appreciation and encourage the boys to show gratitude to their teachers.  Now we do not give expensive gifts, we try and give a homemade gift.

Now my boys are getting older most of the teachers have already got our previous gifts, so we had to have a bit of a think about what to make and came up with this.

How to make a button apple canvas teacher gift

You can make this without using our template, but it is so much easier for perfectionist children to use the template.  The boys are at that stage where they have a need to have things just right.

We raided my substantial button stash for all our red buttons and then I topped it up with some additional ones.

Print our your template and cut out the apple leaf and apple.

Glue on the leaf to the canvas and then place the outside of the template onto the canvas as a stencil.

Start gluing on your buttons inside the stencil.  You can lay them out first if you want to, but we had fun just placing them on and finding ones to fit our spaces.

We found it easier to do the outside of the apple first and then move to filling in the center.

I was glad that we didn’t use a glue gun as it would have set too fast.  Using an all purpose glue allowed some time to move the buttons.

We used an eight by eight canvas, but these would also look great on cards as a thank you for teachers.

I really hope that the boys teachers like this year’s teacher appreciation gifts.

We are going to add the teacher’s name and the boys name to the canvas to finish them off.
