Teacher’s Day – Time to show our appreciation to the ones who have dedicated their time dedicating our children.

Let’s take a look at what one Crafty-Crafted Friend’s Mommy did for the recent Teacher’s Day celebration.

Here’s what Irene of http://zekerene.blogspot.com did 😀

Teacher's Day Gift

The genius part of her uses the floor tiles as a 'ruler' to measure and cut the material into smaller pieces. See? When crafting, all you need to be is CREATIVE 🙂 No ruler? Improvise. The floor tiles can even act as one! That's totally NEW to me 😀

She got lots of earrings and bracelets from Bali ready

She wrapped them up

And then she made some cards

The beautifully decorated and handwritten cards

Beautifully done 😀

Thank you Irene for the wonderful idea 🙂

Merryn had a little lamb.. 😀 Before I break glasses with my ‘out of tune’ singing, let’s start with our lamb project.

Paper Loop Lamb

Paste one end of a strip of paper to the other end; forming a loop.

Paste two cotton balls as the feet.

Cut two ears from paper and paste.

Paste some cotton balls at the back as the wool and a ribbon near the ear to make it 'pretty' 😀

Personalized Drinking Glasses

Having a party? Help your guests identify their glasses with personalized drinking glasses. You need not go to the extreme of ordering engraved drinking glasses with names on it. Cut cost and use ribbons to tie a name tag around the glass instead 🙂

Personalised Drinking Glasses

You'll need drinking glasses, ribbons, craft scissors, cards with names printed on it and a punch hole

Cut the name using the craft scissors. Punch a hole at the side and run the ribbon through it. Tie around the glass.

You are now ready to enjoy your drink with your personalized glass 😀

Learn the different methods to design a mug and we’ll help you print it.

I cut circles out of green foam for the button. See my boy trying to photograph him pasting the buttons here. He's learning to take over my job! :D

Use a hole punch to punch out tiny dots for the mouth.

I use felt for the scarf, pipe cleaner for the hands and foam and ribbon for the ear muffs. The snowman is ready to cheer up your wall. If you wish to convert it into a mobile, just do two of it and paste it back to back. Tie a string over it and hang. Nice :D

This is too simple to do. All you need is a ribbon, foam and googly eyes. Cut out the foam to any shapes desired and add the googly eyes to make it more interesting. Paste the foam on both sides of the ribbon and on both ends too. Alternatively, you may used nice buttons instead of foams.
