lantern teacher gift idea

Sharing a little teacher gift idea today!  I love these lanterns I found at Ikea…and made this little printable to go along with it.  “Thank you for being a light in the life of a child.” This would be great to give during teacher appreciation week, or a the end of the year, or anytime you just want to let the teacher know you appreciate and value them!

I also always love to include a gift card for each teacher…I {heart} teachers.  You can download my free lantern teacher gift idea printable below. Lantern or Light Teacher Gift Idea with free printable Lantern or Light Teacher Appreciation Gift idea

    I loved this idea. I did it for teacher gifts this year but I changed the tag to a raindrop and made it say rain instead and attached them to umbrellas. The teachers loved them!! Thank you!!

  14. Very cute. I went and bought lanterns and all the supplies. Unfortunately, the file won’t print. Please update your file! Thank you

  16. […] can pair this sweet printable from The Crafting Chicks with a lantern, candle or another type of light for your favourite teacher. I like that this […]

  17. It downloads for me however every time I hit print it my printer just spits an empty paper. I tested it with printing something else and my printer is fine. So I just typed my own up on word and made it for our babysitter 🙂

    • After looking to it and checking with our tech guy it appears the problem is in your printers driver. What you’ll need to do is select the “Print As Image” option in Acrobat and it should print correctly.

      1. Open pack in Adobe Acrobat and print. In the print menu select “Advanced”
      2. Select “​Print As Image”

  18. I can download the file fine, it loads as a PDF. Then when I print it….nothing is printed! The printer just puts out blank paper. I tried two different printers…
