Ok, my last post was a while ago...right at the end of the school year. And now it's Back-to-School time...so I guess I took the summer off from blogging as well as from school!
Now that it's time to go back to school, I wanted to make a little gift for the two ladies that are in my department. We're on a bit of a budget, so I wanted to do something that was cute but not too expensive. This is what I came up with:
The jars are pickle jars that I had lying around the house. I always save the glass jars when we're done with them..you never know when they might come in handy! Just put a little hot glue on the jar, add the crayons and that's it! I was worried the hot glue would melt the crayons, but it worked out fine.
For about $12, I was able to buy 3 boxes of crayons from the Dollar Tree plus I bought pencils, pens, highlighters, erasers, hand sanitizer and a few other things.
I've got a few more things I want to add...some snacks or candy bars..something like that. One of the women I work with always forgets her fork at lunch, so I bought her a package of plastic forks to put in her jar.
Not too bad...3 jars for about $12. I've got enough "ugly" crayons leftover to make one more...I told my husband I would make one for him. He said he'd use it, but I think he was just being nice!
