Teacher’s Day DIY Cards

We celebrate Teacher’s Day on the 5th of September every year. It is marked as the birthday of Sarvepalli Radhakishnan, the first Vice President and the second President of India. He believed that “teachers should be the best minds in the country”.

Ashita is now in grade two and wanted to make a card for her teacher. So we sat with an easy idea as it was the last-minute thought. Whatever material we could gather we started and it came out pretty well. We made two thanksgiving cards for her teachers. Here is how we did it.

Take 2 card sheets. Fold them into desired measurements.

Take construction sheets in different colors, trace out hands. We traced one big hand and two small ones. Tracing the small hands also kept my younger one busy. Cut them out. Then cut stems and leaves in green colors. Draw 3 – 4 flowers and cut them out.

Now the sticking part.

On card 1 stick the 3 green stems and then the cut outs of hands accordingly. we have stuck the big hand in center and two small ones on sides. You can change the settings and arrange suitably. Last, take a punching and punch the various color papers used. We used the waste left over sheets to punch. Take out the small round dots and stick them all over. Your card is done.


Write a beautiful thanks giving message to your teacher.
