Teacher Appreciation Day 2011
Is on Tuesday, May 3rd.
Have a gift yet? This is what my kid’s teachers are getting – they are all different as you can see by what I did. First, I bought 5×7 frames from the thrift store – any kind, any color – just decent shape. The ones I bought were all $.50 each because they were $.99 then half off on that particular day. Then I brought them home and took the glass out (and cleaned the glass), and spray painted the frames either Raspberry (that great clearance color I bought at Walmart – in large quantity) or navy blue. The navy blue did some funky things when it dried. It was a special navy blue – not sure if I like it though. I printed off a free teacher appreciation printable – unfortunately I can’t remember from which site – glued it to a bright green piece of cardstock and put the pieces all back together. This is a navy blue one – although it looks a little like black in this lighting.
Sadly – the picture doesn’t show the ornate details in this frame…Hopefully the kids’ teachers like them.
