Here’s a cute idea for a teacher gift that will cost you very little coin! It would also be super cute in a kid’s room, or as a kiddie birthday gift. You can find a box of crayons and a frame at the dollar store. Print out your background with the teacher’s name, and create a monogram out of crayons, breaking them to get the right widths. Glue crayons on, pop in the frame, and you’re ready to go back to school! You can also substitute other school supplies such as colored pencils or regular #2 pencils. Oh, and don’t forget to check the school supply bins at your local department stores for even better prices on crayons! [click here for original project]
