Shadow Box Gifts

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!

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m
    very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for
    something relating to this.
