Teacher Christmas Gift! ! !

Back in October I was at Hobby Lobby digging through the clearance like a mad woman when a bargain aisle caught my eye.


See this little metal sign
My wheels went to spinning...what could I do with this??? I put one in my buggy and walked around for a minute before the lightbulb moment happened...Christmas gifts for my children's teachers! I ran like a black friday shopper walked back to the clearance aisle and scooped up the other two boards...


I mean seriously...a clearanced metal board... some magnets {those are in the works}...add a little modge podge, scrapbook paper, an adorable flower and viola...an economical gift! That I {as a teacher} would love!

Linking up to these great parties:
Join  us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the  weekend      wrap    up           party!
