Paper Players #107

Okay, this time I'm going to make the deadline, days in advance in fact, over at The Paper Players!  Haha!  This week the challenge was to make a Back to School themed project.  Perfect because I needed to finish up the gifts for the girls teachers and this was JUST the motivation I needed!

I made a belly band to go around this cup and then decorated the front of it with a few schoolish themed things.  I really love that little girl :)

For the gift, I got the idea from Pinterest.  You take one of those insulated straw cups and make a divider out of paper.  Then fill each of the divided sections with school supplies or candy or other goodies.  I made two, one for each of the girls teachers.

Are you making any back to school goodies this year?  I love all the school stuff, but find that I never use it like I think will so have learned not to buy it all up :)

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll be back tomorrow.  Have a beautiful Tuesday!!


  1. Love, love , love this!
    As soon as we know which teachers we have, I'm stealing it! :)

  2. This is fabulous! What a thoughtful gift! The girls teachers are going to love it!

  3. fun! now that my boys are older, no teacher gifts. sniffle!

  4. This is so cute and what a fun idea. It's been awhile since I had to make teacher gifts and I miss it. That girl is so adorable. Even though she looks so tiny on hubby's phone I will have to take a close look when I go to the motel and have Internet on my lappy

  5. What a great teacher gift idea! Can never have too many insulated cups and the supplies will be oh-so-useful. Thanks for sharing with us at the Paper Players!

  6. Fabulous gift! So glad you shared it with us at the Paper Players this week
