Pink :: Are you shocked I actually did it?!
A post from me after what...a year or more? I just wanted to share this cute idea for a teacher gift. I know you might be out of school already or at least figured out your teacher gift, but file this one away for another year. I actually did this for Little Think's teacher for Christmas.
I sent out an email to all the parents asking them to find out what their child liked about Mrs. P. Then I took a few of the "best ones" and ironed them on with iron transfer paper to a $8.99 tote bag from Hobby Lobby. (I know you would have sewn your own fabulous bag but you know all about my long and storied history with sewing....)
It was a bit tricky ironing into the tight spaces around the handles but it turned out okay. I used all different fonts so it was like each child saying it in their own voice. The black flower was a hair clip that I snaped on to gussy it up a bit. I have no idea how it held up in the long run but the teacher loved. It even made her cry which is like the gold medal of gift giving in my book.
I had so many other cute quotes from the kids that I typed them up and but the kids names around the outside. I printed it on nice paper and framed it out in a black $6.99 frame. I told Mrs. P to put it where she would see it everyday and know what a difference she was making everyday.
Hopefully it won't take another year for me to post again but you never know....
Happy Last Day of Schooling! :: Think
