Happy Monday everyone! It is challenge day over at Exploring Cricut. The challenge today is to make a back to school project. This is a gift I made for my daughter's teacher. She is starting Grade 1 next week. Now, before I get started, let me say, this is not my original idea. I made one of these last year, for her Primary teacher and originally got the idea from the always amazing Ruthie right HERE. Here is what I came up with:
Isn't it awesome? It is made with 2 boxes of 24 crayons. I bought some on sale last year, and have been hording them since then. The crayons are hot glued onto a ring that I created on my Gypsy girl, by inlaying a 5 inch circle with an 8 inch circle and cutting 4 rings out of cereal boxes and gluing them together - just like that a wreath ring... All of the cuts are from the Recess cartridge, which I love. The wording is all in french, because the kids are both in French Immersion,
I decided to make this year's name sign look like a black board. I cut the blackboard shape out of George and Basic Shapes, and the name is cut from Making the Grade. I bought the ribbon at Michael's and popped it on with some hot glue.
I love how it turned out, and I hope Gabrielle's teacher likes it too.
Be sure to pop over to Exploring Cricut, see what the DT came up inspire you and play along with us.
