Teacher Appreciation Giveaway

Hello, fellow teachers!  We all know how hard teachers work and the endless number of hours we spend prepping lessons, gathering supplies, working in our classroom, and so much more!  Some of my friends and I would like to make your teacher life a little bit easier with a chance to win our favorite teacher must haves, as well as $100 to TpT!

Jillian from The Starr Spangled Planner and I are giving away a Scotch personal laminator and a Carl rotary paper trimmer!

I've had this paper cutter for far more years than I can remember.  I'd have to guess at least seven or eight years.  It's very light weight, making it super easy to transport to and from school.  I usually just carry it in my teacher bag... along with a bunch of other things that I tell myself I will work on at home. ;)

The reason I like this paper cutter better than my big one at school is because the guide along the right edge ensures that I get a straight cut every time.  This makes my OCD heart happy, especially if I am trying to leave a perfect white border around my CVC Sliders that my kiddos will use during small groups.

It also worked great to cut apart our color coded CVC Puzzles.

When I say this paper cutter has taken a beating, I am not kidding!  It has been my go-to for cutting apart labels, gift tags, bulletin board pieces, posters, vocabulary cards, literacy stations and math centers, like these rekenrek cards.

I honestly cannot imagine using any other paper cutter.  The rotary blade even cuts through lamination, and it's so easy to change!  Yes, I am seriously attached to this paper cutter... and you can be too!  Just enter the rafflecopter below for a chance to win!

And you know what goes perfectly with a brand new paper cutter.... why, a brand new laminator of course!  Head on over to The Starr Spangled Planner to see how she uses her Scotch laminator in her classroom!  To laminate is not even a question!
