Hello! My name is Stephanie Johnson and am over to moon to be a Guest Designer here at Frosted Designs! By day, I teach Eighth Grade American History. While I love my job dearly, I need the creative release that scrapbooking and paper art provides in order to keep my sanity. With this in mind, for this project, I was inspired by my job and decided to create projects appropriate for Teacher Appreciation Week which occurs May 4-8, 2015.
I decided to create three Teacher Appreciation gifts appropriate for any teacher and any grade level. Having just taught about western expansion, I became inspired by all things "cowboy" and decided to use a "western" theme for my projects. For the first project, I created a "wanted" scrapbook photo frame to feature a class picture. I used a picture of my students posing in front of the Supreme Court building during our annual trip to Washington DC. For the next project, I created a "pocket" for a gift card. I decided to make the pocket look like something a sheriff would wear in the Wild West. My final project was a mason jar filled with trail mix. To "westernize" this project, I cut a handkerchief into a square to cover the jar, and created a tag and attached it to the jar using jute. The trail mix is simply a combination of M&M's, raisins, and peanuts. Of all the projects, this one was the easiest to make. (And probably the most appreciated by a teacher; trust me!)
I hope you enjoy looking at my projects and feel free to check out my blog at sthom97093.blogspot.com!
