Back to School ....................





My DD5 is back to school on Wednesday & we spent the last couple of weeks making a gift for her new teacher. It took alot of patience to create but think we did a great job.

We used 2 embroidery hoops 9" & 12", each crayon was then placed individually & hot glued in place. The apples were made using the Speaking of School Cricut cartridge, page 31 in the handbook using the shift key & shadow feature. The lettering was cut using the Opposites Attract cartridge using the opposite feature & cut @ 1 1/4"

I just hope it lasts the year & the kids don't help themselves to the crayons !!!!! lol..........

Hi Pauline
Stopped by your blog but couldn't find any way of leaving you a message. The crayons are hot glued onto embroidery rings, I used a 9" & 12" ring.
Thanks for stopping by & your kind comments, come back soon :o)

Great gift. Now if I could think of something that nice and not to over expensive to do for a 4th grade teacher. Thank you for sharing, it looks fantastic.
