I made the kids’ teachers altered lunchboxes. Here is the one for the boy’s teacher:
It’s filled with lots of CHOCOLATE. (hope she’s not allergic or something)
I used the awesome December kit from Serendipity Scrapbook Designs… ’cause it rocked. The paper is Three Bugs in a Rug. I added the ribbon & glitter paint. (which I am so totally addicted to) And I was really surprised that the rub-ons worked perfectly on the tin. Good to know.
I made another one for the girl’s teacher, but the picture of it sucks. I used SEI Kaboom paper (you scrap geeks know what I’m talking about) and it looks pretty cute. I stamped “school days” on the front. That one will be filled with school supplies and maybe some candy too. The husband says it looks like a lunchbox from the 1970’s. I guess that’s okay. I mean, *I’m* from the 1970’s…
Next year, please remind me about how stressed out I am during the holidays and try and talk me out of MAKING teacher gifts, okay?
Of course, hopefully next year I also won’t have uber-work stress, emergency room stress AND holiday stress all at the same time. <<fingers crossed>>
I know that the whole altered lunchbox thing has been done and done and done…and done some more… by lots of folks… but since I never seem to be anything but *behind* a trend, I’m just going to hope that the teachers are not ‘scrap-savvy’ and that they’ll be pleasantly surprised by the little gifts.
Or they’ll say, “That is SO two years ago… why didn’t she just alter a paint can or something.”
Hmmm… altered paint cans… now *there’s* an idea.
