Teacher Appreciation

Teacher Appreciat-ion week was last week and I usually try to make a little something for the amazing people I work with. Last year I made post-it note holders and before that, I made them altered clipboards. Today, I was talking to one of the teachers and I noticed she had her clipboard on her desk and it had papers on it :) I was pleased to see that someone was using the gift I had given them almost 3 years ago! So this is what I made them this year: a photo clip and a magnet. Both are very easy to make. I just took a jumbo binder clip and put paper & some other decorations on it. Then, your photo goes in between the metal part. You don't use it as a regular binder clip (I had one teacher who was a little confused by this :) The magnets are clear stones with patterned paper glued to the bottom and a magnet stuck on the back. I also did this for the Scrap it Forward challenge. Thanks for looking!
