Even though I doubt there's a gift teachers like to receive more than a gift card, I wanted to make something to include with it for our son's teachers.
I used a sparkly sequined paper to cover an mdf heart and created a shiny ornament with a message on the back that we appreciate their heart of gold.
To keep the paper from tearing and to keep the tiny little bits of sequins from falling off, I coated the heart with sealer before threading the rope back through.
I wrote a message on the back with a gold marker.
I might use the ornament as a gift tag on the gift card box. I think it would also be really cute to make a gold star for a teacher gift!
