If you are looking for small storage containers you can use your old bread crumb, cookie, peanut containers. You can use them to give away cookies or supplies to teachers or to store endless minature animals and bugs that your kids like to play with. The possibilities are endless the craft easy and fun.
You will need empty containers, glue and cool paper. This is the time to get creative. For your kids or preschool teachers you can use old ripped out book pages, craft paper. For older kids or middle school teachers use things that are more topic specific.
I got this cute paper in scrap booking store but I am sure you can find a fun print or fabric print on the internet and print it out at home. Cut the print into a desired size.
Spread it with glue. I used white glue but you can really use any kind of glue available in your house. If you still have any wallpaper paste left you can use that.
Glue it to the side of the container. Keep in mind that if you are using a metal container use rubber cement to glue the print on.
For my daughters French teacher we made copies of French Asterix Comic book that I had laying around the house. For English teacher you can copy pages from Webster Dictionary or a textbook used.
You can also go to your local library and copy pages from a book like My First Word Book that come in other language editions.
You can use maps and nautical charts for Social Studies or Georgraphy teachers. Or if you traveled to some exotic places you can use those maps to store little memories or nick nacks that you have gathered there. Like seashells in florida with a map of the city on the container.
We cut little uneven strips to make bows.
There are so cute that you can even use them as gift containers for birthday presents. For your good friends you can post them with pictures or collages. Be Creative and Enjoy !!!
