Teacher gifts

I just can't get enough of making these Monogram paint can teacher gifts.  I just love that I can change the scrapbook paper and they can look so different. I have been making them for the last 3 years and I give them to the teachers at the end of the school year. I figured I would be creative at least at the end of the school year because for teacher appreciation week I pretty much always just get a Bath and Body works gift card or Target gift card for them.  Ever since I  first saw these paint cans at Michaels my brain just went crazy with all the fun things I could do with them. A few years ago I made these Halloween Lanterns out of the smaller clear paint cans that I place on my front Porch every Halloween. There is just endless possibilities that can be done with these awesome cans!

Used my Cricut Machine to cut the letters, circles and scallops The letter I choose is for the teachers last name. Measurement  for the strip that goes around the can  4" wide and I glued two 12" long pieces together and trimmed the excess. For the top lid circle 5 1/2", Monogram circle 5", Scallop 5 1/2", Letters 4" and used shadow cut for the letter mat. I used both the Plantin School book and Storybook cartridge to cut everything out.

I fill the paint cans with school supplies that the teachers can use for next year. I found these cute monogram post its and note cards at Michaels and thought it would be fun to add in the can. Also I add some boxes of their favorite candy. List of supplies I usually add are highlighters, dry erase markers, red pens,black pens, paper clips,staples, push pins, binder clips and pocket size hand sanitizer.

                  Here are the pics of the paint cans I made for the teachers last year and the year before.

  21. The downfall of the attempts of governments and leaders to unite mankind is found in this- in the wrong message that we should see everyone as the same. This is the root of the failure of harmony. Because the truth is, we should not all see everyone as the same! We are not the same! We are made of different colours and we have different cultures. We are all different! But the key to this door is to look at these differences, respect these differences, learn from and about these differences, and grow in and with these differences. We are all different. We are not the same. But that's beautiful. And that's okay.In the quest for unity and peace, we cannot blind ourselves and expect to be all the same. Because in this, we all have an underlying belief that everyone should be the same as us at some point. We are not on a journey to become the same or to be the same. But we are on a journey to see that in all of our differences, that is what makes us beautiful as a human race, and if we are ever to grow, we ought to learn and always learn some more.
