Back to school teacher treat!

Hello everyone! Jessica LiBasci here from Scatter Joy with Jessann! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. As we journey through summer, we journey toward the start of a new school year. It is important to start the year off right! Teachers often have special ways of welcoming our children, it is time for us make them feel appreciated too! This design is intended to inspire you and your child in creating something special for their new teacher. Linnie Blooms has a ton of wonderful supplies for you to create your teacher treat!

For this one you only need a few supplies!
Linnie Blooms Nature Canvas Dies (tree)
Chocolate gelato
Green Tea gelato
Linnie blooms shabby trim (I used ribbon from my staff but I love the shabby trim much more!)
Any style green paper, blue paper and tan paper
Small red buttons
Black sharpie
Card board
Hole punch

I began my project by cutting, what would soon be the green top of of the tree away from the trunk.

Once cut, I used the green tea gelato to color the top of my tree and the chocolate gelato for the trunk.

While the canvas was drying I cut and adhered my paper to the cardboard. I used a blue patterned paper for the sky and a green patterned paper for the grass. Once the canvas was dry I glued it on. Then I glued on my buttons and tied on my ribbon!

To finish my project I used a black sharpie to create a dashed line/stitching effect. 
You can create any banner and wording you choose.


  1. Fantastic canvas! What a great way to show appreciation!

  2. What a sweet project that I am sure any teacher would treasure! Love the flux stitching!

  3. What a wonderful token of appreciation. I love how you did the banner with the faux stitching and your tree is so darling.

  4. WOW!!! How fun is this?? I love how you created the tree and the fun marker stitching you added! It truly brings this to life!! Great Job!!! Loves-Scrappin Madge
