Teacher Appreciation!

Hello all you crafters,
Today I am going to share with you what I made for my daughter's 1st Grade Teacher.  Besides making a personal gift for her I was in charge of decorating her door for the week.  I have to say I really like how my projects turned out.  

First project is a wooden pencil painted and decorated for the teacher's desk.  As you can see I glittered the eraser, I wound wire around the metal part for the pencil and I used vinyl for the name. 

 For the door I made my very first banner!  I love it! 

I cut the letters from the Boys will be Boys cartridge. 
I put a little bit of bling on each of the letters with stickles. 

I put it up so that she would walk under the banner, instead of putting it flush on the paper. 
I think she is going to keep it up for a long time. 

Cartridges:  George & BS, Locker Talk, Doodlecharms, Boys will be Boys
I used a lot of stickles, some glossy accents, & pop dots.
I used some rainbow ribbon to tie it together. 
And of course I used my Gypsy for the whole project!

Sorry for so many pictures, I was just really proud of this project and wanted to show it off!
Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you were inspired.
