Sharply Missed

Sharply MissedWhether it’s you moving on, or the gift recipient that’s going elsewhere, sometimes when you’re parting ways it’s important to find a small way of showing them just how much they will be missed.

Sharply missed, but fondly remembered!

This gift can be used in lots of ways for lots of people (who can’t use a permanent pen or two!), but we especially like it as a teacher or workplace gift because of its relevance.

You will need:

  • 3-5 Sharpie pens (colours of your choice)
  • Card for printing or drawing your design onto
  • Either pens to draw the label or a computer/printer to print it
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon


First create your card with the design of your choice and the words “I just wanted you to know that you have made your mark.  You will be sharply missed, but fondly remembered,  Thank you”.   Alternatively you can personalize it to fit your needs.  Punch a hole in one end or corner of your card to allow you to pass your ribbon through and group your Sharpies together, securing them in a bunch with the ribbon.  If they do not hold securely, use an elastic to hold them together and cover it with the ribbon.
