I love being crafty. Any chance I get to make a gift, I take it. Especially for teachers. I will usually make teachers things that I would like to receive. My favorite? Shadowboxes.
Shadow boxes are a lot of fun because you can be very creative with them. If you keep an eye out Michael’s will normally have them 40% off or “Buy One Get One Free”.
Last year I made a cute shadowbox for my son’s kindergarten teacher. I made the letter “F” out of crayons and placed them inside. I thought it turned out very cute.
This year I picked out a few decorative flowers and pearls from Michael’s scrapbook isle. I found a small wooden “S” and painted it white. I arranged them just so, and ta-da! A gift that looks like it took hours to make!
Shhhhh! Don’t tell!
