This was a craft done LAST December that I completely forgot to share here! This is a simple handmade element kids can do for their teachers to wrap up any gift, big or little you are gifting them. Teachers already have their fair share of mugs, candles and soap so I decided to get something most women want: a gift card to Target!
A gift card for any amount is a welcomed gift I’m sure, but not substantial in physical size. I paired ours with some cute journals found in Target’s dollar spot and one personalized notepad from Tiny Prints for Miss Valeri, Brielle’s head teacher. To dress these up, Brielle got involved in a fun craft activity – making wrapping paper by painting with corks!
The concept was simple – give her 2 plates with paint, 2 corks and a sheet of paper and let her create as she wanted. (Ya gotta love that tongue sticking out while creating!)
Did we care about mixing colors on the plate or paper? NOPE, we did not!
Did we start making music with our corks while creating art at the same time? YES we did!
Once dried, I wrapped each gift card, notepad or journal in her handmade wrapping paper and used other scraps to make tags.
In the end, Brielle got to be involved in creating while the teachers themselves received something they’re actually like/use.
Let’s see your cork painted projects! Tag me on social or email me a photo if you do the same! I’m always looking for more submissions to my Reader’s Feature!
