Teacher Gift

Triniti adores her first grade teacher!

So we went to work this weekend on making her something for Teacher Appreciation week.

I picked up a wood box from Hobby Lobby and stained it.

Then mod-podged paper to all sides and added a few stickers.

Triniti wrote her name and year on cardstock and I mod-podged it to the inside of the lid.

She is so excited to take it to her today!

Here's the amazing part of this whole project. I did not eat even one of those Andes Mints when I opened the package and filled up the box. Don't give me too much credit, I knew if I ate one I wouldn't be able to stop and there wouldn't be any left!

Oh how precious and kind and thoughtful. As a teacher myself, you have NO idea how much acts of kindness like this mean to us. Thanks for that! And, whew-whoo on keeping from enjoying those yummy mints. Celebrations all around!

Happy seeing beautiful!

I love this, how creative and cute! My mom always helped us come up with personalized and DIY gifts for teachers, and they loved them! I would love if you would share this on my link party, Sweet Tooth Tuesdays. (It's not just for recipes, but crafts and DIY projects as well.) This would be perfect for an end of the year gift!
