Teacher Gift Ideas you can make with your Cricut

Here are some teacher gifts ideas you can make with your Cricut. These projects are quick to make with vinyl you have at home, making them easy to make last minute!

Custom Colour Changing Tumbler

Apply a favourite teacher quote onto a colour changing cup. Easy, custom teacher gift perfect for summer! You can put a gift certificate inside for a local coffee shop to complete the gift.

“Don’t Make Me Use my Teacher Voice”

I love this teacher quote! You can find the Cut file in my Etsy Shop.

I found these TAL colouring changing cups at Walmart last year. Similar cups are currently available at Walmart.

I like to keep a stash of these colour changing cups! They come in handy for any occasion. I have customized them to give for birthday gifts and camping trips.

Personalized Water Bottle

Such a simple gift idea, just add the teachers name to a water bottle with vinyl! I gave these ones out to the male teachers last year. I love how the Gloss black vinyl looks on the Matte Black bottle, I think it is the perfect masculine look.

I hope you found these teacher gift ideas helpful! If you make a custom colour changing cup or water bottle I would love to see it! Tag me on instagram @hangmadejoydesigns #handmadejoyblog

Stenciled Shirt using Vinyl and Acrylic Paint

It’s the last Day of School! I managed to finish my teacher gifts (late) last night and love how they turned out. I thought I would quickly share one of my favourite ways to make t-shirts.

I do love using heat transfer vinyl, but if I want a more distressed look to my design or I just run out of vinyl, I stencil my design on with acrylic paint. Acrylic craft paint is permanent on fabric as long as you heat-set it. I just make sure to give it a good press with a hot iron and it holds up in the wash just fine. I sometimes add just a tiny splash of water to thin the paint if I find it is too thick. Don’t worry if the paint seems a bit stiff when the design dries, I find it softens up after you wash it.

I cut my design out on adhesive vinyl using my Cricut machine. It is a bit time consuming to weed and place the vinyl, but the adhesive vinyl works great as a stencil.

Next time you run out of HTV give this method a try!

Music Teacher Gift – Free Cut File

Its almost the end of the school year for my kids and all of their activities are wrapping up. Time to start getting the teacher gifts made! I decided to make our piano and violin teacher a tote bag.  A tote bag is a practical gift and really who doesn’t love a cute tote? I have included the cut file in this post as a free download for you so you can make one too!

I made a simple tote bag out of some white canvas I had in my fabric stash, but a pre-made tote bag works just as well.  This is such a quick and easy project, prefect for last minute gifts. I simply cut the heat transfer vinyl with my Cricut machine and ironed it on. This design would look great on mugs and t-shirts too. I included the PNG and PDF files as well so you could even print off the PDF and frame it if you prefer.
