Here are the gifts I created for the kids' teachers this year.
First up, my classic pencil monogram:
I've been doing these for YEARS now, and each year, the teachers RAVE about them!! I think they're so cool. I should do one for my studio. :)
My daughter had the same teacher last year, so I couldn't make her a monogram this year, since she received one last year!! So, I made her 2 things...
This pencil vase:
(totally easy: Just take a can and hot glue pencils to it! I added a rubber band to secure them (in case it were to fall) and a ribbon atop that.
And I created this star out of buttons.
I didnt want to do a monogram, since she got the pencil one last year. So I chose a star, since her last name, De L'Étoile, means "Of the Star" and she often signs her first name followed by a star :)
Hope you like these, let me know if you do something similar!
