So, as you all know Lovebug #1 had her first year of preschool this year! It was a blast, she loved it. I loved it. I loved her teacher. She loved her too.
So naturally I had to make her something uber cute for her last day. I'd seen this on Tip Junkie before and I fell in love! I thought it was PERFECT for a preschool teacher obviously because they use crayons 99.9% of the day. (When they aren't playing with playdo, which I've come to realize takes up a lot of the princess' hectic day :) )
You can tell by the picture it's pretty self explanatory but- I'll tell you how I created it anyways. I got some heavy duty card stock, and a cheap-o document frame from Meijer. We have crayons all over the place but I did manage to buy a new pack so she could have some pretty new ones. Nice and Sharp!
Then I cut them in half with my cutco knife. I tried cutting them with scissors and well it about took my eye out when it flung at me! If your going to cut it though, you don't have to use a cutco, but I love those knives. Gotta give props!
Oh, right the project.
So I sawed, and cut and sawed and cut. Put them to the paper arranged to my liking. And drew her last name on the bottom. I have really bad handwriting. If I were going to do it again, I'd use a font online. But- trial and error, eh?
Actually the more I look at it the more embarrassed I am.
I might take a penmanship class.
Anywho, that was my pretty I thought I'd share. Since the Disney trip took a HUGE chunk of change from me. Mr. P says I can't spend anymore money this month. BOO! I'm thisclose to finishing my living room. Remember my lamps? Yep those plus new curtains, accessories.. and pizazzz. I just need a couple finishers. Just you wait! :)
