Okay, so I'm not suuuuuuuuuuuuper crafty like some, but I have my moments.
I saw something similar to what I'm going to post, but for the life of me, I can't remember where. I think it was a kiddo's valentine....
Here's what I made for Gage's classmates:
It's a regular 4x6 print, in black & white.
Cost? I think 9 cents for each copy (b/c no, I didn't print them at home...)
I just took a pic of him "punching" at the camera. Note the smile. He was happy to play that game! Then, I used scissors to cut above & below his little fist. Slipped in a pencil.
5 for a dollar? 8 for a dollar?
I forget... Got them a while ago at Walgreen's.
For his teachers:
Apple Cider & the pencil pic...
I know---some may give the teachers better gifts, but I thought this was a creative spin on the whole "an apple for the teacher" tradition.
And---today we gave M her gift.
She told us that she liked the flower ear-rings, but they weren't sparkly & they didn't have pink as a center stone. I agreed, but told her that they are sterling silver and from a really neat store. I told her that I think in time she will like them...and she replied with the sweeeeeeetest little bright eyes & smile, "I already do!"
Have I mentioned how much I just adore M?
It's going to break my heart if & when they break up.
