Get crafty with these 20 creative teacher gift ideas to make with your Silhouette or Cricut!
One of the things I love about my Silhouette is how easy it is to whip up custom gifts for any occasion. Teacher gifts are no exception! And teachers definitely deserve extra recognition…as a former teacher, I can attest that being a teacher is HARD work. So with Teacher Appreciation Day coming up in the beginning of May, I thought we could all use some inspiration for easy teacher appreciation gifts to make with your Silhouette or Cricut! There are lots of great ideas out there, but here are just a few to get the inspiration flowing.

This tote bag is a really special gift, because it has all the names of the students in my daughter’s class from this year! I used my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil to hand letter all of their names in the shape of an apple. The full project details are in this post.
I whipped up these mugs for my daughter’s preschool teachers last year, and wrapped them with some mug cake mixes and pretty ribbon. They would be perfect for Kindergarten teachers, too! Free cut file included.
Aren’t these little planter buckets from BrenDid so cute? She wrote on them with sharpie paint pens, but it would be easy to do the same thing with vinyl instead!
Cut out some card stock flowers and leaves, glue them to paper straws, and add chocolates – such a cheerful and simple idea from Pigskins and Pigtails! She even monogrammed a little bucket to hold the bouquet.
Burton Avenue used a paint bucket and added some vinyl to make a pencil holder. You can purchase this SVG cut file on her site, or do something similar with another saying or design!
Isn’t this little candy pouch card so cute? You could customize it to say anything you want. Find the full tutorial over at Hey Let’s Make Stuff.
I just love this Teachers are Magical unicorn design from Persia Lou! It’s available as a free SVG and .studio file on her site. Put it on a clipboard, a tote bag, a mug, etc.
Another great free teacher appreciation cut file from A Girl and a Glue Gun, perfect for a tote bag or pencil cup. So true, isn’t it?
Oh as a former teacher, I can so relate to this! Pencils disappear like nobody’s business. Whip up this teacher t-shirt from The Thinking Closet!
Okay, this idea from A Girl and a Glue Gun is GENIUS. Help the teacher keep his/her scissors separate from the class stash with a quick and easy vinyl label. Kim even has a cute printable to go along with it!
This colorful print-and-cut tag from Where the Smiles Have Been is perfect to pair with any kind of school supplies!
Another tote bag idea – this one from Snap Creativity is a fun play on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air lyrics. There’s a free cut file, too!
Make a glitter keychain with the school colors/mascot! See the full tutorial over at The Homes I Have Made.
Slap some vinyl on a clipboard for a quick and easy teacher appreciation gift idea! This one is from House of Ideas.
How adorable is this pencil bouquet from The Happy Scraps? She also made one with dry erase markers. So clever!
I don’t know about you, but I always have extra mason jars laying around. Make an apple shaped stencil out of vinyl, paint around it, and then fill up the jar with candy. Great idea from Infarrantly Creative!
Vinyl on travel coffee mugs make a great gift. Aren’t these teacher mugs from Ginger Snap Crafts adorable?
Another cute tote bag idea from I Love Doing All Things Crafty.
Can you believe Sowdering About made these apple earrings with her Silhouette – out of card stock? So cute!
Love this idea from Love and Laundry – put some pretty scrapbook paper inside a frame, then add a vinyl quote on the front of the glass. Quick and easy teacher appreciation gift idea!

Oh my!! These are all fabulous!! I’m kinda wishing I was a teacher just so I could receive some of these gifts! I love how you can take a ‘cheap’ product such a cup or clipboard and make it look totally brilliant with the help of a vinyl cutter!! Will need to ask my daughter about her opinion as to which gift/s I should make for her teacher! Thanks for all the fabulous ideas!
