so, it’s that time of year again, and I’m wondering what to get my children’s teachers to say thank you for taking them off my hands for the whole year. Little one has finished reception and is still in the school system so I have lots to be grateful for. This post shows what I made his teacher and I am just about to presents to her this afternoon. Wish me luck.
I made her a necklace with ABCD pictures so that when they are learning their letters and sounds, she might want to use it as a prop. Failing that, she could always hang it up somewhere and wonder at what kind of person spends their time making these things!
I made it using Shrinkles. This stuff is amazing. You just draw your picture with a permanent pen (I used Sharpies) stick it in the oven, leave it in there for about two minutes and it shrinks down by about seven times. And there you go, you have ready-made Perspex beads. Don’t forget to punch a hole in the picture before you stick it in the oven though.
Then I used some soft Jewelry wire, some star beads and lots of time in front of RuPaul’s Drag Race to make a wire wrapped necklace.
If she doesn’t like it, do you think it would be rude to ask for it back?!
