Tutorial: Back to School Gift Container
It's back to school season, and it's always nice to kick the new school year off with a little handmade gift. It's a fun way to say, "let's make this a great year!" When I was a classroom teacher, I was always asking parents to send more pencils to class. With that in mind, I made this fun pencil gift holder to give to the new teacher. You could put something else in the gift container (art brushes, Twizzlers, markers, etc.) or make it a gift for a student.
- Plastic crayon bank, $1
- Craft knife, on hand
- Fabric scraps, on hand
- Mod Podge, on hand
Step three: Cut a piece of fabric to fit around the tube. I used Mod Podge to adhere the fabric.
Step four: Make a fabric bow to place around the top of the crayon.
Finally, fill your crayon gift container up! I'm filling mine with pencils, but as I mentioned earlier, you could fill it up with lots of other items. It would even make a cute craft supply organizer to keep at home. Have fun crafting and creating!
