Back in March, my son's elementary school had our Spring Carnival. This year, I helped out with the Silent Auction by soliciting faculty donations and also by assisting classes with making some "AWESOME" art to auction off. I say "AWESOME" because the kids did the art and it looks amazing!
In addition to that, I made a bunch of stuff to auction off: a school scrapbook (just fill in the photos!), an elementary school frame (place for wallet size photos of each year) with our school logo on it, various grade level collage posters, a mosaic of this year's student body, and even 2 card/craft classes taught by me. One of the classes was a kid class and we had it today, after school. It was so fun! The kids were awesome – LOVE how they are so creative and free spirited. When do adults become those "perfectionists" types?
So, we made 4 things – a personalized chalkboard for notes, a mother's day present, a mother's day card and finally a teacher's gift. Can't show you the mother's day stuff yet because some of the receipants may be watching…
But here is the teacher's gift…
It's a matchbox with 5 Hershey's nuggets in it. We covered the nuggets with stamped address labels.
The box is another Accucut die, called Matchbox #1. I used to make these by hand and cut and score everything. This is WAY easier. 😉 Cut and put together, lickety split.
We stamped the labels and the white cover with retired A Muse stamps.
Three of the girls in the class today are in the same class (which happens to be the same class as my son!). That teacher is going to get A LOT of chocolate :)!
