>I got this idea from Mrs. Firemom at Stop, Drop and Blog, where she made this for her sons’ preschool teachers. She in turn got it from someone else’s blog. I loved the idea so much I made one up for Charlie’s Pre-K teacher’s end of year gift.
Unfortunately, I made it at the very last minute and totally forgot to take pictures of my steps. It was super duper easy so I’m pretty sure you can follow along to make one for a favorite teacher in your child’s life.
shadowbox (8×10 or 12×12)
crayons (used or new)
knife to cut crayons
glue (hot glue/glue gun or craft glue)
nice marker to write name
I used a 12×12″ shadowbox from Hobby Lobby because the less expensive smaller ones at Wal-Mart were out. I already had the cardstock from my scrapbooking stash plus tons of Charlie’s crayons.
