Maureen Anders of Anders Ruff here to share a FREE Printable Bag topper that is perfect for Teacher Appreciation Week!

Adria (Ruff) loves this teacher quote that says “The influence of a good teacher can never be erased” and thought it would be perfect to incorporate either pencils or erasers.  Instead, she went for a more colorful approach and went with dry erase markers!  This is quote hits home for me because I have countless memories and inspiration from my youngest years as a student.

All teachers need Dry Erase Markers and of course there is no way to make them cuter than to add a by gluing on poms… it makes the markers festive, yet practical when used.  Wrap them up in a clear cello bag, add the Free Printable Bag Topper (which you can download from Anders Ruff) and you have the perfect Teacher Appreciation Gift!

These printable bag toppers could also be used to top of bags of pencil erasers, chalk markers, or even just chalk! I love the way they are packaged and coordinated with the bright colors.
