Monday Teacher Gifts

Happy Monday!

Boy, do the weekends go by fast or what?  Did you have a great weekend?  We sure did her and I got a lot of stuff done for around the house and some crafting time in!!  Gotta love that!

I had the privileged to work with the awesome collection Makin' the Grade from Little Yellow Bicycle for Cord Scrapbook Studio.    I really loved this collection.  I wanted to make some fun altered items using this collection that would be great to give to the teacher's for Christmas or Teacher Appreciation day.  My first one is an altered clipboard.  I know I use clipboards all the time so I thought it would be fun to alter one.  This clipboard is aimed more for the elementary teacher but I still love it as a High School Teacher!  I trimmed the paper to fit and then glued it down.  I then used my Silhouette to create the fun school images all using the paper from this collection.  I then glued those down.  Finally I used a matte modge podge and gave it a good coat to seal it all.  I love how this turned out!!

My second item was super easy.  I took a 4x6 clear acrylic photo frame and popped in a 4x6 sheet of paper and then attached the note pad.  So easy and so cute!!
supplies
paper- Little Yellow Bicycle
tools- Silhouette

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
