Craft Lightning: 15 Minute Teacher Appreciation Gifts



Today I'm sharing a special Teacher Appreciation gift that takes under 15 minutes to complete. Originally I shared this on the Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine blog HERE, but I thought I would share it again here on my blog as it's nearly the end of the school year and you might be thinking about something special to get your children's teacher.

Each of these 15 minute and under crafts uses the hot trend of chalkboards. You can achieve this look by stamping on chalkboard patterned paper with white stamping ink or embossing with white embossing powder.


 
To find additional ideas you can visit the original blog post HERE. Here's a peek at the materials I used to create this chalkboard effect:


You can also use dark charcoal grey or smooth black cardstock to get the same effect. The possibilities are endless with this technique!
