Teacher and Grad Gifts

Just a couple of easy frames I did. One for a favorite teacher and the other for the daughter of a friend. Supplies are things I had on hand...$1 wood frames from Michaels, and scrapook paper.

Plain wooden frame ....frame painted black....use frame as a template to cut out scrapbook paper and decoupage to front of frame.

I cut out two scrapbook paper templates with coordinating papers. I knew I wanted mix up the patterns so I used one whole template and then tore the other one in half and decoupaged on top of the first one.
Using the paper cut out from the center of the frame template, make layered paper flowers ( I just cut a random flower shape in descending concentric layers) and then I crumpled the paper for a more dimensional effect.



Glued the flowers to the frame and added some embellishments I had on hand ( alphabet labels and buttons) and voila. Oh and see what's behind the frame? That's a sheet (196) of amazing glass tile I found at Home Depot and bought in two colors that I can't wait to play with and they were only $4 (ea)  but I digress!
The teacher gift will go with a scrapbook that the kids will present. It's fun to watch your kids grow up and know that they really do pay some attention to what you do. My son (17) came up with the idea, and told the other kids "Go to JoAnn's or Michaels and buy a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper and make a page". I'll put all the pages together in an album and made a page for the front with all of the kids names:

Now...off to figure out what I'm going to do with my glass tiles :)

These are very cool. I've got a 17 year old son too and he wouldn't even begin to think about something like this. You are very lucky.

Visiting from Tatertots and Jello.
