School’s Out! (Almost)

Last night was graduation & all of my kiddos are gone, off to college & the real world.

As a high school teacher my students don’t really give me gifts- I occasionally get a sweet card but they are over us by the end of the year.

However, I loved this idea from Hi, Sugarplum.

In fact, I may just make it for myself to put on my desk next year! (Hey, sometimes you gotta give the gifts to yourself).


Cassie took a coffee can, glued the pencils around it, then put the ribbon around to  give it some flare.

And voila! An adorable place to stash your pens & pencils.

Check out all of Hi,Sugarplum’s ideas on easy and fun crafts.

She makes some fantastic looking stuff but actually makes it seem possible to do!
