Day 3 of this year's Teacher Appreciation week of Gifts.
Today is Paparazzi Day at our school, these large wooden clothespins fit the theme perfectly and I already had them on hand, just waiting to be jazzed up!
I let my kiddos pick out the color they wanted to paint them, removed the metal clasp holding the two wooden pieces together, for ease of painting and let them go to town.
Once the paint was dry, we added a few strips of red liner double sided sticky tape. It's a great non-messy way to add a bit of bling to your projects. We shook on a bit of glitter and added a foam letter for personalization and our photo holders were quickly complete!
For the tag, we used the Big Shot and XL Top Note Die to create a pretty shape that we stamped a camera and "remember to smile today" phrase and added a few glittery star stickers for our superstar teachers!
If you don't like messes or are impatient for glue to dry, this red liner double sided sticky tape should be in your craft supplies. We added a bit to the top of a small wooden clothespin and added a strip of coordinating designer paper that we also put behind our tag to close the brown paper lunch bag shut.
*note: this stuff is REALLY sticky, make sure that you keep a pair of scissors just for cutting this tape and make sure you have it where you want it to go on your project before sticking in place, once it's stuck down, it's STUCK!
My Kindergartner has two teachers and they both love the color purple. We switched up the direction of the stripes to give of their photo holders distinctive glamour.
