Teacher's Gifts

I am proud to say my son graduated from the 8th grade on June 4th.

I decided to make his Principal and 8th grade teacher a good bye/thank you gift.

The first project is an altered papermache book from Michael's. I painted it with gold acrylic paint and used paper from the DCWV "Mariposa" collection. I used mod podge to adhere the paper and seal it as well. The embellishments are prima flowers, brads for the centers and a butterfly from Michael's.

The second project is a clipboard also from Michael's. I removed the clip to make it easier in gluing down the paper. The paper is from the DCWV "Sorbet" collection. The flourish is from Tim Holtz grungepaper pack. I took some pearl ex powder and mixed it with a little mod podge and painted it on. The results were great. I added a quote from the computer on plain cardstock and glimmer misted it with "old lace". Some mini roses, a lollipop flower and lace for a finishing touch!

Congrats to my son for graduating with "second Honors"!
