Teacher appreciation week just ended, and for one class I just donated money, and for the other I forgot to take a photo of the gift! It was actually a repeat of a previous year for another teacher and an idea that is on my other blog. I will be transferring it here someday :) This idea is actually what we gave teachers as a Christmas gift. I love how they turned out and thought I would share the idea.
These memo pad holders are made from 5x7 clear acrylic photo frames. I got these at Walmart and I think they were $2 each. Then I just used my digital scrapbook stash to create 5x7 designs to go in them. If you don't have a digital scrapbook stash, GET ONE! There are innumerable free supplies out there to hoard. After designing, I got them printed as 5x7 photos, slid them in and added a 4x4 Post-It-Notes pad. Super easy, and I think they turned out adorable! If you had a thin piece of cardboard to slide in behind the photo for support, that would help support it when writing. I also ties some jute just above the note pads for a little extra.
Total price is under $5 each.
