An Easy Teacher Gift Brewed Up

mclean bday1

Hello… I say sheepishly, as I know that it has been clearly over a year since I have posted a project. YIKES! Yes, I am slowly making my re-entrance back into sharing what I make. I humbly hope there are some of you that still  remember me as I sneeze through the dust from my poor neglected blog and share this fun idea I came up with for my daughter’s 2nd grade teacher.

My kiddo’s teacher is truly powered by coffee. I am pretty sure it runs through her veins.  She even has a Keurig in her classroom for coffee on demand. So coming up with an idea for her birthday was pretty set with coffee.  I love making sure the kiddos are incorporated into the actual gift, so I figured out how to combine the both by adding some simple white card stock, Xyron Adhesive, a 2 inch circle punch and some kiddo creativity. I found a cute container for either coffee pods or wine corks at Kohl’s and poof, I got me an inexpensive, but sweet and useful gift for one great teacher!

Here is how I did it:

I punched out 2 inch circles and had kiddos decorate and write one kind word that comes to mind regarding their teacher.

Then I added adhesive to the back and slapped that baby on top of a Keurig Coffee Pod and called it a day!  Yup, that easy! I have to say, she absolutely cherished this gift!  You could stamp, use pretty paper, add cute embellishments . . . the world is your oyster with this idea!

That is it! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!  Hopefully you found this one of those ,”Eureka!” type of crafty projects, like I did. AND mostly thanks for stopping by and visiting an old crafty friend.

Hi all!  Today is my last day of having my oldest be home with me before she heads off to the great and new world of Kindergarten! Sniff, Sniff! To brown-nose kick off the year right, I decided to make her teacher a card to go along with all the “donations” of sanitize wipes, Kleenex, markers, and paper.  Sheesh! I guess that is the new rite of passage that goes along with now being a mom of school-aged kiddos.

Here is a peek at what you can find up over at Jinger Adams today!

Each talented Design Team member will be featuring an original BACK TO SCHOOL Project that includes a SCHOOL RELATED  Item, such as crayons, rulers, pencils, book, school bus, etc. along with at least ONE Cricut Cut.  There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members’ blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a “Back to School” project at FCCB!

I kind of pulled out the kitchen sink of crafting supplies to do this project including recruiting the hub’s bandsaw to cut the pencils and rulers for the roof top.  I used Mod Podge for adhering the paper to the bird house and had some fun with my NEW Cricut Catridge, Doodle Charms! NOW I know why all the fuss over that cartridge and am kicking myself for not getting it sooner!
