Teacher Gifts

Inspired by an idea from my friend Deanna's Blog (not for the first time!), I went and bought some of this: And made these for gifts for two of my kids' teachers:

I loved the idea for giving school supplies because there was no state funding for such things this year and they are continually needing them. The pencil holders were made from washing out large tin cans and gluing on scrapbooking paper with Mod Podge. The bottles are hand sanitizer. (If you want to make some yourself... you might have better luck following Deanna's instructions!)

Thanks to Tim for the picture... my camera is not working at all now. (Hint, hint, Santa).

Those look fantastic Brenda! :) And admit it, cutting and pasting is fun!

Sonja said...

Those look awesome. I'm kinda feeling inspired....well, maybe not. But, they look really good!!! :)

Misty said...

Very Nice!! And why were you posting at 1:30 in the morning?!?!!

Brenda said...

Thanks for the compliments... I am proud of them!

I was posting at 1:30 in the morning because that is the only time I can get on the computer around here after my husband and three kids get their time. Ha.

So creative Brenda! I made a couple pairs of earrings for Joshua's teacher, does that count? No, because I already knew how to do that!
