Holiday Gift for your Favorite Teacher!

I know, I know, you have gotten more than distracted in all of the holiday flurry and almost forgot to add your favorite teacher to the gift list! Well, here is something you can start and finish in under 10 minutes that your teacher will be sure to use and enjoy.

Make a simple framed and monogrammed cork board with some spare materials some of you are bound to have lying around the craft room.

All you'll need are these simple supplies: old frame, cork board sheet or pieces, buttons and hot glue!
Cut the cork into pieces to fit the frame backing just right, and hot glue them into place. 
Once you have the backing and cork back into the frame, lay out your buttons in your desired color scheme and shape, I chose the last name initial, always a classic!
Pin a little tag on with a spare thumbtack and you are good to go! Something she'll be sure to use and love for years to come.
Have any last minute gift ideas to share with us? Leave us a comment and a link to your great gift ideas too!

Happy Wednesday!

Brainstorm! Hot glue the buttons to tacks, then use the tacks to make the initial or design. I'm ahead this year (actually already gave the teachers their presents)--maybe next year!

Super cute! You could have some serious fun with making your own tacks too!
