Give teachers a big “Thank You!” with this interactive DIY Custom Teacher Appreciation Shaker Card! 

After the year teachers have had, they deserve the biggest thanks for all of the handwork and dedication to their students.  It’s been such a crazy time and teachers haven’t missed a beat.  With the school year over, it’s time to show these special people how thankfully we are for everything they’ve done the entire school year, especially the last few months. 

Even though we can’t thank these teachers in person, we can still send something from the heart to show how much we care and to let them know they truly are rock stars!  This DIY Custom Teacher Appreciation Shaker Card is the perfect way to say “Thank You”. 

I designed the stamp for this DIY Custom Teacher Appreciation Shaker Card on Rubberstamps.com.  They have numerous stamp designs to choose from on their site, but they also offer a custom stamp service.  It’s so cool, especially if you want to create stamps for your business or even a special event like a wedding.  

Check out the full video tutorial below to see how you can create your own DIY Custom Teacher Appreciation Shaker Card using a custom stamp from Rubberstamps.com

Supplies: 

Step 1: To create a custom stamp, go to rubberstamps.com, select “Custom Stamps” and filter by “Clear Stamps”.  Then, select the 2”x4” stamp.  Click on “Personalize” and then click “Graphics”–”Add New Graphic”–”Browse”.  Upload your graphic and resize to fit the space. Once you have the right size, add it to you cart to purchase. 

Step 2: Cut a piece of 8.5”x11” white cardstock in half.  Cut a piece of 5.25” x 4.125” solid cardstock and a piece of patterned paper 5.125”x4”. 

Step 3: Either draw a star shape or find a template online.  You’ll want the star shape to be 3.25”.  

Step 4:  Flip your patterned paper over and place the star on the upper right-hand corner, trace it, and use a craft knife (on top of a cutting mat) to cut out the star shape. 

Step 5:  Flip your patterned paper over and center it on top of the colored cardstrock. 

Step 6: Lightly trace the inside of the star. 

Step 7: Cut a strip foam squares in half.  Then, peel off the back liner and place them around the outside of the traced star about 1/8” from the pencil mark. 

Step 8: When you’re done, erase the pencil marks and shake of the shavings. 

Step 9: Add glitter to the inside of the star shape. 

Step 10: Then, peel of the top liner of all the foam squares. 

Step 11: Cut a piece of transparency film 5.125”X4” and place it on top of the foam squares. 

Step 12: Add glue to the back of the star cutout cardstock and glue it on top of the transparency film. 

Step 13: Fold the white cardstock in half (this will create your cardbase). Then, glue the other piece of cardstock on top. 

Step 14:  Grab your custom Rubberstamps.com stamp, place it on an acrylic block, and add ink. 

Step 15: Stamp a piece of 5.125”X4” white cardstock and then cut it out to a banner shape. 

Step 16: Add foam squares to the back and place on the bottom of the card. 

Once your DIY Custom Teacher Appreciation Card is finished, don’t forget to toss in a little something extra like a gift card to show the teacher(s) in your life how gratefully you are for them and all of their hard work the entire school year!
