A few weeks back my friend, NoJo, Found this on Pinterest and shared it with a few of my friends. I thought, what an excellent idea! And it just so happens that Magdalena's Teacher has a C last name. Awesome! It took me a little while to find the right font, but what an awesome teacher gift. And our school has a little above door window that she could easily use it in.
On to Mrs. Klock, Ethan's teacher. Well, I am not sure why, but the letter K was giving me fits. It may just have been that it was 11pm, but I could not get the crayons to cooperate. :( So I came up with this:
I knew it wasn't that good, but I had to see how bad it really was so I showed this picture to the same 'Mom Squad' friends and in seconds it was nay-d by several people- Which is good, cause frankly, I wasn't feeling it either.
To show how good these friends are, Sarah found this on Pinterest after I went to bed and linked it for me. Yay, now that I could do! So here is what Mrs. Klock will actually be getting:
You will notice Mrs. Klock is getting her name layered on the black. Well, I am nothing if not cheep, so I peeled the glue sticks off the card stock and proceeded to tack the crayons down. Well, when I was done with that I decided that the crayons next to the name weren't working for me, so I peeled them up, but ripped the paper a tiny bit. Well, I wasn't redoing the K, so the layered name was born...and I like it better. Good thing Mrs. Carter's is wrapped or I'd be peeling her stars up to add the layer to her name!
I am taking the chance that neither teacher reads my blog and am posting this before I give it to them. Let's face it I am 99.999% sure neither of them know I even have a blog. ;-)
Thanks for stopping by!
Helpful hints if you are thinking about trying this:
- Buy extra Crayon Boxes in August when they are only $.25 for the good Crayola- let's face it I am a Crayon snob and don't think it would look as nice with the Roseart ones.
- Shop for the frame when it is on sale!!!
- I cut the crayons with an exacto knife on a self healing mat. I basically scored around the outside and snapped it like a green been. The ones on Mrs. Carter's are all 1" long. Mrs. Klock's are two sizes. The straight and diagonal lines are 1" but, the diagonal lines appear longer since they are the flat ends. The mid-k blue one is 2 1/4".
I hope the hints help!
