So this Christmas I saw some ideas for gifts for my friends and relatives. My first gift came from this website but I modified it a bit. Here are a couple of my versions.
Mark, the Devil's handyman, did a fantastic job of routering the corners and creating a more professional looking finish on the back board. I tried to use many of the pictures that I have taken over the years but I did need to get a little bit of help from flickr.
These were fun to make and really made me think about looking for letters when I'm out taking pictures. Once you know what you are looking for, they seem to pop out of nowhere. Would be a fun idea for kindergartners field trip. Look for and make an ABC book out on the school grounds or on walks.
Another crafty idea I learned from pinterest was personalized soap bottles. I downloaded pictures off of my friend's facebook pages and printed them off on clear transperencies. You can slide them in a clear soap bottle that you take the labels off of and their kiddos shine through!teacher gifts. Cheap and very unique. The people that I gave it to loved them!
