Hi Ya Friends!
Today marks the last of teacher gifts for this year. I hope you've found at least one idea to tickle your fancy :) Today's project is super easy, super functional, & super cute. This is something I created for myself :)
After 6 years, I FINALLY got a new whiteboard in my classroom. The last one wasn't even a real whiteboard- it was that slick material used for bathroom showers---> seriously! Well, my new real whiteboard is also magnetic which is a big plus- no more taping things to my whiteboard!!! It's so much easier & faster to use magnets- so that's what inspired today's project.
Here it is:
It all began with these buttons:
I removed the shanks with my button shank remover:
(If you don't have one of these, you seriously need to have one! They remove button shanks like butter. They can be purchased at JoAnns as well.)
Then all I did was add 2 cardstock circles & adhered the button with craft glue dots. I adhered a circle magnet to the back. I recommend these heavy duty circle magnets instead of the strips because these will hold charts in place. If the magnet is weak & thin, the chart will just slide down the whiteboard- and back to the tape you go!
These are mine, but if I was gifting them, I would do this:
I created a mini-Pizza box.
I made a little whiteboard to decorate the lid cover from photo paper (it has that glossy, whiteboard look- you could also use glossy CS) and the frame from silver CS. I resized this chart of the pledge of allegiance & used micro pop dots as the "magnets" which I colored with a red Sharpie. I think this might give a hint as to what's on the inside:
I used buttons, but you can use punches, die cuts, stickers- anything you'd like!
For today's gift going into the Teacher Bag o' Gifts is:
A set of Martha Stewart writing pens! I mean every teacher needs a set of great pens & these are GREAT! There are 4 black pens in different size points & 2 are permanent- for writing on different types of surfaces. They write like a dream- well done, Martha!
