Make-It Monday: DIY Teacher Gifts

Posted on
Categories Activities, crafts, DIY, Make-It Mondays, School-Age

School starts here this week.  (I cannot believe summer is OVER already!!!)

I wanted to do something little for the girls’ teachers, so I decided to get my girlies involved to make some fun paperclips.

My girls had a great time going through my button collection and matching their finds to different colored paperclips.


(I have found the big clips at the craft store, the office supply store, and even at the dollar store before.  And buttons that are flat on the back work best.)

Once the girls had everything positioned, I used a low-heat glue gun to assemble everything.

The girls wrote a little note to their teachers on some brown cardstock, robbed my washi tape collection for a little accent, and viola!  Super-simple!  I hope this makes their teachers smile!


(Had this been from me, I probably would have attached a cheesy little note [I LOVE cheesy!] along the lines of, “To mark the start of a great school year!”  I resisted the temptation to direct the girls to write that.  :)  )

MandyE is mom to 6 1/2-year old fraternal twin girls.  She blogs about their adventures, and her journey through motherhood, at Twin Trials and Triumphs.
