In the weeks prior to my son's last day of Kindergarten last Thursday, I was browsing Pinterest for some cute and unique teacher gift ideas to give to his 3 teachers at school. My best friend (who is a teacher) had shared with me that she has scented candles and lotions that will last her a lifetime. Gift cards are also a great and useful alternative (which we gave them at Christmas), but I wanted to give them something unique that represented/symbolized my son's experience in Kindergarten. Enter Pinterest.....
I thought this was such a clever idea! Determined to make it (3 of them!) I headed to the 99 Cent store to pick up supplies (3 boxes of 64 count crayons and 3 small round glass vases--I didn't want to use cans as in the original tutorial.). I didn't find the vases I was looking for there and ended up at Michael's. Anyway, a couple of gluesticks, ribbon, and goodies later, I made these:
Each little vase has a set of 3 pencils, a little sticky note pad, and flower brooch (LoveNote Crafts, of course!). I thought were so cute and adding the matching ribbon to each one just made me smile. Check out the link to the original tutorial and Happy Crafting!
