Hello everyone! Popped in to share a teacher's gift idea! A quick and easy classroom decoration using Pebbles Garden Party collection. nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gift This is one of the projects that you may not want the others to see the back, haha! I made it from a piece of cardboard. I cut a piece of a carton to 12" x 5-1/8" for my project. nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gifts-supplies First, I cut three 12"x1-1/2" strips from the pink grids paper and die cut the scallop borders from them. You can also hand draw some scallops and cut out. nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gift-scallops I adhered the scallops down first and then covered the edges with a piece of the black dots paper. nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gift-scallop-border Adhering the thickers down may be the only tricky part of this project. I first put the top of the letters on the plastic packaging to decide where I want the letters to be. Then I pressed the lower portion of the letters down on the paper and then removed the packaging. Be careful not to tear your letters apart. nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gift-thickers When pressing the letters down, try not to put too much pressure on them all at once so that you can still have room to adjust their positions. nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gift-adjusting-thickers Then the surface is all ready for the beautiful cardstock shapes and embellishments. nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gift-flowers When you are happy with the layout, adhere the pieces down. I used foam dots for added dimension. Can you tell the difference between the left (flat) and right (foam dots used)? nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gift-flowers-foam Then I continued to add a few critters here and there to finish it off! nina-yang-classroom-decoration-teachers-gift-more-embellishments I had so much fun making this classroom decoration as a teacher's gift! I hope that Mrs. Riley will like it! But this project is not limited to a classroom. Change the words a little and it can be applied to many of our home projects too!
