Crayon Photo Frame & Teacher Gift Basket

I made these frames for The Mess Maker's preschool teachers as part of their end-of-the-year gifts.  There are LOTS of crayon art projects out there on the web, but I followed the tutorial over at Mama Made It because it was the easiest to follow and I found the exact frames she used at Target.  I used 32 crayons on each one...to cut the crayons, I used a sharp butcher knife and then glued them on the frame with a hot glue gun.  When finished, I printed the sentiment and added it to the inside of the frame...  Easy-peasy!

Here is a photo of the finished gift baskets, with the crayon frames, the owl pillow boxes (that have giftcards inside) and the bookmarks with the students' favorite thing about each teacher printed on them:
(Tin buckets are from the Target dollar bins!)

Thanks for looking!

Dear Lord,
Please place Katie and Cameron in the same classroom next year. They really enjoy each other's company.
Thanks,
Colby

p.s. There are no selfishly motivated reasons for wanting Lori to be one of the other mothers in class. wink.
