Teacher Gift: Note Holder

Hi there friends,
Today, I'm continuing with Teacher gifts & today's project is super easy!
Here it is:

With a pocket caddy in the back:
for sticky notes or other goodies :)

I bought this at Mike's for 50 cents. 
I painted it & then simply covered it with DP.
Now, it's ready for embellies!

 You could also make a ladybug or butterfly with it :) This gave me an idea for what to do with those SU! wooden blocks I've been hoarding storing for a project like this. (I've been unmounting my stamps for almost a year & have several blocks I didn't want to throw away.) I found some 12 gauge wire at Mikes & decided I would make more of these. I simply drilled 2 holes at the top curled the wire just like this one, used my glue gun to secure the wire in the holes. & that's it!

Did you notice what was in the caddy? Well, that was a sneaky peek at today's item going into the blog candy bag! I mean every good teacher must have a great pair of scissors & these are GREAT!!!

They're perfect for detail cutting. Don't forget to leave a comment for each teacher gift project for more chances to win!

Tomorrow I start with my school kiddos, but guess what I'm doing the night before??? Uh huh, just like last year, I'm going to a rock concert!!! Woooo- seeing the same band as last time too :) Don't worry, I'll be bright eyed & bushy-tailed for my brand new kiddos ;)

Thanks for peeking today!
Gotta Go ~Rock on ;)


  1. Awesome Karli. You're so creative!

  2. I have to run out and get some of those blocks - such a cute idea! Thanks for another great gift idea.

  3. WOW this is an amazing idea...gotta love all the primaries together...Great idea, I may have to lift it for my friend who is a teacher...Love all the projects you have created since I have been MIA..Hugs, Ronnie

  4. Love this one too Karli. I'll have to check my Mikes for some of these, I don't think hubby would let me near the drill (probably a smart thing). The little pocket in the back is such a great idea, too. Those scissors are the best, I love them for cutting ribbon, no fraying. Hope you have fun at the concert. Who are you going to see?

  5. How creative!
    My "to try" list keeps on growing :0)

  6. This is so great! My sister is a teacher, and I'm always making things for her and her friends. Have fun tonight, and to quote Def Lep, "Do you want to get rocked?".

  7. Another creative & useful idea.

  8. That is a great idea as a gift for teachers. I like the idea of using the rubber stamp blocks.

  9. This is such a crative way to hold stuff. I definately would have never thought of it lol. Keep up the fantastic work =)

  10. Wow! What an awesome idea! I,too, have unmounted my wooden stamps! I have donated most of them to my daughter's Art class at school but I held on to the ones that were unused! I was going to monogram them for teachers gifts! Never in a million years would I have come up with this idea! I wish you could do a video of this! I am such a visual person that I have to see someone do it before I can do it! I would love to win one of those and I have always wanted a pair of those scissors along with another million things that is on my wish list LOL! Thanks for sharing an awesome creation!

  11. Really CUTE! Such a great idea TFS.

  12. ok, this is flippin' adorable girl! just love it! what a terrific idea! hugs!

  13. I always look at those blocks and wonder what I could do with them. This is a great idea!

  14. You have the best ideas Karli!

    This is such a fun project

  15. Very cute & super cheap- wow! Thanks for all the great ideas!

  16. what a super cute photo cube and the little pocket you added to it is perfect. what teacher wouldn't love this
