This next week on May 3rd is teacher appreciation day. I decided to make a small gift for Cambree's preschool teacher. I thought it turned out so cute. It includes a pencil/pen holder for her desk, a few pens, a cute package of sticky notes and of course some treats.
So I'm going to do a picture tutorial on how to make the pencil holder and then just explain everything else.
- 1 paint can (you can find them at any craft store.)
- Mod Podge and paint brush or double stick tape
- 12x12 inch Paper
- Post-it pad
Okay first you are going to measure from the inside of the top "lip" to the inside of the bottom "lip." I don't know what it is really called but that is what I'm calling it. Mine was a little less than 4.5 inches.
Now you are going to paint your can with Mod Podge and apply your main piece of paper. Then paint over the top of your paper with Mod Podge. I then added a second strip that was 1.5x12 inches and painted over the top of that strip. If you don't want to use Mod Podge it also works with double stick tape.
here, just don't add the 5th circle to the middle and replace it with a brad instead. I cut my circles with a 1.25 in circle punch. Here's the front of the can...
