Back to School - Day 3

It's Day 3 of our "Back to School" week and we hope that you've been enjoying the projects that our Design Team have been sharing with you.

Today we have some great gift ideas for teachers to share with you so let's get started.


Tiffany Hood

I love the "Geek Is Chic" collection, so I was excited to use it to make a gift for my son's school teacher this year.

I made the magnets using clear pebbles from the floral section of the craft store, crystal effects, and black round magnets, and I made the wood base for the magnet board with Mod Podge and a 2x4. The metal sheet was bought at the hardware store, cut, and the edges rounded. You can also pick these up at some craft store already made.

The black glue sticks and the Imaginisce I-Bond cordless hot glue gun were perfect for the magnets. I'll have a full step-by-step tutorial on my blog on how I made this project.

For this desk organizer I used a small wooden box, where I painted only the edges with gesso.
After the gesso was completely dry, I started to glue the Imagisce Collection perfect for this Project: "Hello, Cupacke". first inside the box, and then out of the box.

This box can either be given as a gift to the teacher, or can serve as a desk organizer for the student.
I just filled it with candy and some of tags with pencil, but can be kept several things in it.

I created this fun Teacher's Notes Hanging Notepad Holder using my Silhouette. This holder can hold a notepad and pen. Plus at the has another pocket to store notes or anything else. This is a great idea for a teacher gift!
