Teacher Gifts

I've been one busy mama this past week.  All due to "Teacher Appreciation Week". 
This is the only time of the year you can let your teacher know how special she or he is.
After looking at pinterest, I was inspired by the things I saw and decided to try out a few myself.

First up I wanted to surprise all the teachers in the school with a special door sign.

Only a few supplies needed for this easy no cost project as you can see below.

For my daughter's teacher and aide, I wanted to give a small token of appreciation each day.

This is just a few items that I sent and they where all under a buck. 
By using, ribbon, stickers, and scraping materials around the house for dressing up little things like post its, gum and paper clips saved me money.

The next items that I did were for the final gifts to teachers and staff at the school.

Dress up a clip board with scrape book materials, stickers, and bling. 
Whatever you could find will work. 
The pictures below take you step by step. 
 Just trace, cut, glue and add your personal touch. 
 I even added a clothes pin clip with ribbon to hold pens.

The next one is simple and no hassle. 
I purchased inexpensive colored picture frames at walmart and seashells.
All you need is a glue gun.

The last project did take some time to do, but I love the end result.
I like to call this one art bling!
You need a canvas, acrylic paint your choice of color, colored jewels, tacky glue and permanent paint pen.
The kids can get involved with this one. 
 I had my daughter do the painting.

Let paint dry and add a second coat if needed.
You want to make sure the canvas is completely dry before the next step.

With a paint pen trace the letter you want to use with a stencil. 
I printed a free one from the Internet.
Use a paint brush to put the glue on the canvas where you want the jewels to go.

Just us a paint pen to write the saying you want.
These only cost me $5.00 each to make.

You can use the same idea on a glass jar.

Thanks for stopping by today!
