For The Teachers

Well, the end of the school year has arrived again! Where in the world does the time go? I can't believe another summer is just about upon us. With the end of the year comes gifts for teachers, and this year I decided to give a little of me to them.

One of the swaps I joined was an altered paint can swap. I loved the idea, the way it came and how it looked, so that is what I'm doing for 2 of the teachers, and for 1 teacher I altered a crayola crayon box, which was done by one of Memory Makers magazine's Masters, Melissa. Inside I will put a Barnes and Nobles gift card, a little brag book that they can keep in their pocket books and some sweets as well.

Here is the crayola box -

After the basic cutting and mod podging I embellied it a bit -

This is the brag book I put together for them. The top is the little pages for the book, the bottom is one assembled. They will each get one-

These are the paint cans that I made for MaryAnn and Sophia's teachers. I didn't go crazy with embellishing, I think they look fine the way they are. On very very rare occasions, I do feel less is more -

For their patience, love, and dedication, our children's teachers deserve our thanks!


  1. How very cute! Your gifts will be the envy of the teacher's lounge for sure!

  2. I love these! The crayola box is sooo cute! I love the way you embellished it and the mini cans are cute too. You are very right sometimes less is more and I agree these didn't need a lot of embellishing. The brag books are too cute too! I am sure the teachers will enjoy them and you are are so nice to make them for them.

  3. Covering the crayon boxes, what a cute idea. Love it!

  4. I love it. So cute,the teaches can only love them. That was so thoughtful of you and very creative.
    Great job.
