Teacher Gifts
Wednesday, May 25, 2011

The last day of school is TOMORROW!  Woo-hoo!  Here are the gifts we made the boys' teachers:

I did the cutting of the stencils and the boys did the rest. I have photographic proof that they sewed the ribbon around the top of the tote bags, but as soon as they heard the camera shutter I was made to promise I would NEVER reveal the sewing images.  Apparently sewing is not sufficiently manly.  Anyway...we filled the bags with a few goodies, and notes telling Mrs. Swain and Mrs. Hisey thanks for a great year!

So for the bags...freezer paper stenciling again!  So fun and easy.  I downloaded the "badaboom" font from dafont.com for the lettering, and found the skull and crossbones here.

It could appear that we don't like these teachers or that perhaps the contents of these bags are hazardous....but it's just that the school mascot is a pirate.  For clarification.  :)
