Hello, and welcome to the Pebbles blog! Amanda here today with a quick and practical teacher appreciation DIY. As a former high school teacher I know that I was most often in need of consumable supplies, especially pencils. Although I never fully understood why, it is nearly impossible for 14 and 15 year-olds to keep track of a pencil, and darn it if I was going to let that be an excuse to not get work done!
Your child’s teacher will sing your praises if you give the simple (and inexpensive) gift of pencils. Brand spankin’ new ones, with erasers and all. Deliver them in a fun, yet practical, container that they can keep on their desk year-round.
This old-timey straw dispenser will get way more use holding pencils than it ever would straws. It would be super fun to fill it with colored pencils or even paintbrushes.
Rather than use a red apple, decorate your pencil dispenser with trendy pineapples and citrus fruit. Classic black polka dots and vellum label add a cool, modern look and contrast nicely with the bright yellow pencils and stickers.
Top it all off with an adorable twine bow.
If you have worked with vellum before, you know that adhesives can be, well, a sticky issue. Avoid unsightly adhesive issues by strategically placing glue dots behind the printed portion of the vellum sentiment. For this rather small sentiment, I picked up tiny glue dots with tweezers and placed them behind several letters.
Look, Ma! No adhesive showing behind the vellum!
Thanks for stopping by today!
