End of School means special gifts for your teachers.

Next weekend is Prom for my son.  We are excited and are running behind on getting flowers and tux.  My sons girlfriend is soooo sweet and soooo pretty.  I will post pics as soon as I get some. 

After prom, I think there is only a month or so of school left.  OMG!!!  That is just crazy.  Okay, so I made a cute gift that you could give to your teacher to let her know that you appreciated everything she has done throughout the year.  I used the Commerical Vector- Teachers Scribble BlockArt from Peppermint Creative.  There are many more that you could use for this project and others.
I found this cute chalkboard at Hobby Lobby.  I think they have different sizes.  I had my husband drill small holes on the ends.  I first painted it a lime green, but didn't really have any ribbon to match so I repainted it red. 

To start off with, I imported the cutting file from Peppermint Creative into Silhouette Studio.  (Tutorial to come.~  Still trying to figure out how to get it posted.)  I used my Cameo and vinyl to cut the word art.  I hope to show you how to transfer the vinyl to the board shortly. 

Here is the project finished.

I love using the Vector art for projects.  I have several others to come.  Just waiting on the weather and the wind to cooperate. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. 

Don't forget to go by and check out everything that Peppermint Creative has to offer.  While you are there, check out the galleries.
