When your kid is in Jr. High you just never know what is going on at school so this year I decided to take a different twist on my teachers gift.
And when the name of the local bar and grill plays perfectly into my idea?
For end of the year teachers gifts, I have been giving “explosion boxes” for a few years. My son has had one teacher for 3 years and is now moving onto Jr. High so I wanted to give her something a little different. I came up with a tool box concept and searched for how to do it online. I came across this file. I liked the fact that it had a removable top tray to hold the tools with room underneath. Under the tool tray I was able to fit the actual gift, gift cards with room to spare for a note from myself and my son.
Oh, and I also made a backpack.
It’s the end of the school year here and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved my kids teachers this year.
Which brings me to the end of the year teachers gifts.
I usually do gift cards but this year wanted to make them special some how.
After finding this youtube video, I modified it to fit into my idea.
(Note: I don’t have any of those fancy folding tools. I used my hands and the back of a pen cap)
The box opens into four “flaps.”
Each flap is a gift card holder.
The “Eat” one is for Panera Bread.
The “Drink” one is for Starbucks.
The “Read” one is for Barnes and Nobel
So what do you think? I love them and really this sort of gift card box can be used for any occasion. Costs just a few pieces of paper too.
Reasonable and cute.
Now pass me the wine. I’ve got 4 more to do.
(Though I did not come up with the box idea, the concept of Eat, Drink, Read is all my own.)
