brown paper packages: {for your favorite teacher}

{for your favorite teacher}

This is the gift we made for our favorite 2nd grade teacher this year. I found the paper box at Walmart for around $1.30. (I am a sucker for a scalloped edge) I got out some of my favorite BasicGrey paper and covered the box. I inked the edges with chocolate brown ink and added a cute tag on top that says, "clips and bits". I made a matching notebook, some matching magnets and threw in a bunch of paper clips. It ended up looking like this:

The magnets are a fun project to do with your kids. You just buy some clear pebbles from your local craft store and then use a circle punch to punch out circles the size of the pebbles. Glue the paper to the back of the pebble and then glue a magnet to the back and let dry overnight. I love the way everything coordinates.

If you are looking for something more, I did this gift basket for my son's Kindergarten teacher two years ago. I went totally overboard, but it turned out darling. It includes: A clipboard, treats, a "to do" book, a set of cards, a personalized notebook, a personalized checkbook cover, a candle, a small clips and bits box, and a "so silly" journal to write down funny things the kids say in class.

So adorable!

try making the magnets with pictures the kids draw - either have them draw tiny pictures or reduce their larger drawings with a photocopier. We did that project last year and they came out SOOO adorable! But I love the idea of matching the backing to the other pieces of the set.
