I'm still working on my creative talents (I'm afraid of modge-podge, y'all!) and I gotta admit...I was overwhelmed after looking at all the crazy crafty teacher gifts people make! I had left myself with only one day to come up with something, and I wasn't really looking to go all-out. I needed something that required minimal effort, little-to-nothing to buy, and not a lot of time. But something cute, of course!
I love subway art, so I decided just to look for a free printable. There are always free printables floating around on the internet, and you can definitely find many through Pinterest, but I hit the jackpot when I discovered
I don't know how I haven't run across this site before!
Tip Junkie has a wealth of info on *everything*.....15,000 tutorials on crafts/DIY, home decor, food, gifts, parties, and there are *tons* of free printables!
Lots of free, cute anything = YAY! Don't you agree?
And the site has a very attractive, organized setup with an easy search to find whatever you're looking for...a big deal for this beginner. I just clicked on the "Printables" tab at the top of the page, then typed "Teacher" in the search field at top right. There were SO many cute ideas and printables to go with them!
I chose this one...

...ran and bought a $3 frame at Walmart (and some candy too), threw 'em in a gift bag, topped with this cute printable card...

...and ba-BAM! It made me feel like I tried pretty hard.
But I so didn't. ;)
Check out Tip Junkie, it's fantastic! It miiiiight even rival Pinterest as my go-to website in the future!
