School DAYS! Back to School Week at Pink Persimmon

Hey there everyone!  Pink Persimmon is sharing back to school week with helpful Pink Persimmon projects to celebrate your child's new teacher.

New Teacher Gift

I put together this pencil can in hopes to have made something both pretty and functional.  :-)  I can see making more coordinating projects through the year.  By the end of the school year your teacher would wind up with a full set of Pink Persimmon goodness.  Oh the wheels are turning... for now here we go!

The project itself is really easy to put together.  Simply wrap an empty clean food can with designer paper.  Add some stamped and color images.  A little ribbon here and there... don't forget some bling or pearls and there you have it.  A spiffy gift ready to go on your child's first day of school!

This is an altered Spam can.  In the can is an ample collection of disposable mechanical pencils, a plastic ruler, a pad of paper, scissors, and on the go Kleenex pack.

On a personal note, I just returned yesterday from a business trip in Alaska.  Work has kept my days full.  I don't know how working part-time can keep me so busy?  I hope to get my craft on later on.  Can't wait!

Thank you for visiting me today.  Please stop by the Pink Persimmon blog for more back to school projects throughout the week.  You don't want to miss all the inspiration!
