crayon shadow box monogram

This past Christmas, I racked my brain for something personal to give my daughter's teacher. (Something that didn't have apples or #1 Teacher on it - I assumed she had received plenty of that over the course of her teaching career.)  The class collectively contributed to a larger gift, but I still wanted to give her a small token of our appreciation for her outstanding job!  I came across this adorable idea on several blogs and thought it would be perfect.  It was really easy to make.  While back-tracking to give proper credit (still don't know where I actually saw it first??), I found this site that includes a fantastic tutorial.

All you need is a shadow box frame (I found mine at Ikea), poster board, an exacto knife, hot glue gun/glue sticks, a Sharpie, and a new box of crayons.  (Sidebar... does anyone else get as excited as me when you open a brand new box of crayons???  One of life's little pleasures in my book!)

I love how whimsical, yet classic, this gift is.  I hope Mrs. Ferguson can hang it in her room for years to come!  And, Mrs. Ferguson, if you're reading, thanks again for all you do for our children!
