Easy Peasy Teacher gifts

Easy Teacher gifts

Had you ever had that feeling that you forgot a gift? That is just how I felt last night. Monkey had not been feeling well and did not go to school that day. So instead of getting done what I needed to I was playing nurse. Well around 6pm last night I started to feel a panic but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Then it hit me Teacher gifts! So a quick trip to target and after toying with a variety of different ideas I remembered that Monkey’s teacher is a bit of a photo bug. So I picked up some small photo books for $1.99. They are kinda blah so this morning in the wee hours I cuteified them. What do you think?

I then added some cute rock magnets that I made a while back, a candy cane and an owl ornament made by Monkey!{The owls are a foam kit from Target} I just think they came out so cute!

When monkey woke up she put stickers on the frog one and didn’t want to add any stickers to the flower one. Since everything was in my stash I was able to complete this project for only around $3.50 a gift which is extra sweet since my budget was $5.00!
This is the whole gift set before wrapping

This is how I am packaging them I put the magnet in a Ziploc bag twisted then out a clear ponytail over the twist and cut of the top zip lock part to make this cute little bag!

Since this is the last day before Christmas break I ran them over there this morning with lil Monkey still not feeling well.

What are you making your teachers for Christmas this year?

Excuse the pictures I am using my backup camera and it is hit or miss!
