It’s time for Back-to-School! We have a week and half left until our kids start school. Fingers crossed we should be into the new house this Friday just in time for school! Of course it’s also time to start brainstorming Teachers Gift Ideas, and I have a fun one to share today!

School Supply Teacher Gift Idea with DIY Printed RibbonWhen Epson contacted me about their LabelWorks Printable Label Kit I was super excited! My Type A personality loves labeling things! We have an Epson Label Printer at work and I use it all the time. I’ve wanted one for home for a while, and seeing that I can print on ribbon and iron-on ribbon make my crafter’s heart go pitter-patter. Do you sew? Easily label your clothes with a DIY Iron-On Ribbon! Or jazz up a gift with a custom printed satin ribbon. So many ideas.

Every teacher needs school supplies, right? You always hear about how many teachers are spending their own money to purchase more supplies for their classrooms. How about help them out by purchasing a few extra supplies for them to have on hand? I bought to pencil cases for $1 each and filled them with crayons, pencils, markers, post-it notes, and glue sticks. All of which you can find for pretty amazing deals right now. If you want to go an extra step, add in a gift card to the teachers favorite store or office supply store! To finish off the gift, I printed a custom ribbon on the Epson LabelWorks Printable Ribbon and tied it around the two boxes! The perfect custom back-to-school Teacher Gift!

Teacher Gift IdeaThe LW-300 label printer is  super simple to use – it took me about 4 minutes to pop-in the batteries and ribbon and to print out my first ribbon! I went simple for my first try, but there is a variety of fonts, symbols and frames that you can use to create truly spectacular printed ribbons! And with multiple ribbon/font colors, there is bond to be a ribbon for your project!  Plus, the label maker can use other cartridges as well, so one label maker for multiple uses! I’m ready to label things throughout our new house! I also have of ideas for future use including custom ribbons for party favors.
