A Gift for Teacher (with a video)!

Posted on Jun 4, 2015 10:10:16 AM

Hello, Erin here! I wanted to create something fun for my son’s teacher for an end-of-year present. When she had her open house at the beginning of the year, I noticed she had a handmade pencil holder on a filing cabinet that she said she could not use anymore because it was falling apart. I wanted to make her a new one to help replace the one that has seen a lot of love.

The Paper House School and Monster papers and stickers were just perfect for this project, full of lots of fun and whimsy for a third grade teacher. I wanted a lot of bright colors and something that she and her students would think is fun, and also to make it her own by having her last name on the front of the box. I also wanted to give her lots of storage and places to hold items for the kids or for herself that were easy to access, but not make the holder too big so as to take up a huge amount of room on her desk.

Here is a step-by-step video of how I made this fun little desk organizer for my son's wonderful teacher.

 Here are some close-ups and different views of the project.
