Teacher's Gift with the Silhouette
Just a quick post today to share with you a simple teacher's gift that I made up for my daughter to give to her 4th grade teacher. Her teacher's last name is Hopple and even before she got married, she collected frogs, so it's kind of funny that she collects frogs AND her last name is Hopple.
It's a large bottle of Hand Sanitizer that just so happens to have an image of an Aloe Vera plant on the backside, which doesn't show up here very well. I traced & layered this cute little frog from a clip art image I Googled, then added her name to middle in a fun little font, that sort of has the appearance of hopping (just agree with me on this - ok?). It's called An Unfortunate Event and was free, probably at Dafont.com, but not sure on that. I tied a sheer matching green ribbon at the top and called it good.
We're also giving her an Attic Treasures stuffed frog that looks more like a vintage style than kiddie-like....
...and this little wooden spool ornament I made. (yeah, I have a TON of lights on my tree)
That's all for today. Keeping it short & sweet since I have some more projects to finish and the one is not going well at all. I'm on my 5th try to make it work. It's supposed to be a Christmas present that a customer is purchasing. Needless to say, I am NOT happy that the easiest part is now my biggest headache! That hard parts are all done & turned out beautifully.
Have a WONDERFUL Christmas (in case I don't get back on here before THE big day!)
