Well I saw this cute little idea in my July/August Paper Crafts magazine…..

And I said to myself….”This would make a great gift for all the kids teachers.”  (Two male teachers included.)

Then I found this cute owl image in clip art.  And I thought- “huh I can make that!”

I know……my owl looks like he is on CRACK!  But I still like him!
So do you want to see the finished project????

Stole a big role of my hubby’s twine from the Men’s Club out in the garage.  (Remember – I had to man it up!!)

Inside the box………….
And the best part about this box is once you give it away- they can pay it forward!  Re-cycle and re-use!!!

Eve- this is brilliant! I bet they loved it...and probably made smores in the teacher's lounge Microwave!

Tanya said...

This is awesome! I love your owl and toasted pompoms and the twig...awesoem!

Leigh Ann Baird said...

Wowza! I want to make something like this! Thanks for the inspiration, you rock!

Jamee said...

OOOHHH That is such a neat idea!!! I hate marshmallows but I LOVE smores!!! Your card is so adorable!!!

Erica said...

What a cute idea! I love how it turns out. Ok, so you are right, your owl looks a little tweeked up, but SOOOO adorable. As a soon to be teacher, my eyes tend to look like that because of all the caffeine necessary to keep up with the kids. I think it is perfect!

Allison said...

This is brilliant! And I just love the way you decorated it (those cotton puffs are fab!).

Karen from PA said...

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
