100th day of school gifts

First off before I share my latest projects, I have to mention my obsession with Pinterest. Seriously I am addicted. It has practically EVERYTHING on the web there. I love that I can find things to make, create, eat, buy, drool over, copy etc there and then post them on my boards so they are there for me to go back and reference again and again. I have discovered if I want anything done in the house, I need to limit the times I click the find more pins button. If I hit it twice, I am good. Anymore than that and we are eating out and wearing dirty clothes.

My inspiration for the following teacher gifts can be found here. Amazingly talented lady resides there.

Here are mine. I picked up two 5X7 acrylic frames at WalMart for $.94 each. Or was it $.97? Either way pretty good deal. Everything else I had in my stash. Seriously. Had the post its and all the scrapping goodies on hand. Love that!!

Even better, this project took me one day. And not even the whole day! The longest part was finding the letters to use from my stash. This first one is for Alex's teacher.

This one if for Kira's teacher. I love that they celebrate the fact they have been in school for 100 days! So much fun. All the kids get to bring in 100 of something to share. They have 100 day parties. It is neato. Hoping to attend Alex's party!!

I am very happy with how these turned out. I have to get them wrapped and they will be set for February 7th... unless we have a snow day anytime between now and then.


  1. I love them! And I'm glad you told me about these...great little gifts to make. :)

  2. Love love love these!! Thank you so much for the idea!! You and I should share a brain when it comes to teacher gifts. I'll email you ahead of time if I find something that I've never made and might suspect that you haven't either! This one is FAB!!!!
