Teacher Appreciation Week - Day 2

If you haven't figured it out yet, this year's gifts have a theme. Do you see it now? Just to throw you off, when I finish with K2 teacher gifts I will be switching themes on you.  I like to keep you guessing.

Another super easy, super quick, super cute gift that even your kid can make for his/her teacher. All you need is some scrapbook paper, a clear plastic standing frame, some Post-it Notes, and some Mod Podge.  
Keep in mind that you want to use the stand to prop up the notes so that your teacher can write on it.  Put the stand at the top instead of at the bottom. Did you know that they make Pop-up Post-its?  I didn't.  They don't work as well for this project, so just get the regular ones.  Ignore the photo above and pretend I made the right selection.
Trace the insert that comes in the frame onto the scrapbook paper and cut it out.
Grab your Mod Podge and put a thin layer on the frame.
Place the paper on the frame and then spread another thin layer of Mod Podge over the paper.
Put your Post-it notes on and embellish with beads, bows, ribbons, or whatever you like. You can also skip the Mod Podge and just insert the scrapbook paper into the frame for a less permanent gift - which is a perfect way if you are letting little ones help make it.
Now you just need a pen...oops.  Didn't mean to give anything away *hee hee*. See you tomorrow!
