Teacher Gift

Well as promised I'm sharing today. I love making teacher gifts. They work so hard and should be thanked for all they do. I'm usually working right up until the last minute to get the gift done. Not this Halloween. I saw so many cute creations in PaperCrafts Magazine that I just had to try to make some. Well here is what I came up with. I got the tall container at a $1 shop. I thought they were really neat and for only a buck who can beat that! It was a little hard to cover it with paper as it wasn't perfectly round. But I improvised and I think it turned out pretty cute! I put a foam square in the center, glued some black paper shred to the top of it and then stuck as many lollipops as I could in it. Here are a few close ups of the actual container.


I think Abby's Pre-K teacher is going to love this. Now, I just need to make myself one ;)
Thanks for Looking!
Supplies: Bazzill Cardstock, Pinecone Press Halloween Line (last year)

Woo-hoo!! Look at you on top of things!!
Very cute idea. Are the squares just cut out of the paper or is it stamped?
Cute!
