The school year is over here in Hawaii! At the last minute my husband and I
put together this nameplate for Ryker's teacher. Ms Arakaki was so wonderful!
She really dedicated herself to teaching her class and making sure that
everyone felt included and loved! What a wonderful woman!
What you'll need:
* 12" long 2x4
* Saw and sander
* Vinyl lettering
* Jute and/ or yarn
My husband was wonderful and cut out and sanded the piece of wood for
me! You need to cut the tip of the pencil this shape >. Then, using a
sander ( belt sander is best) run the edge around the other end to define the eraser.
Go ahead and paint your pencil. Allow it to dry completely.
I cut my vinyl lettering out on the Cricut. I used " Making
the Grade" Cartridge. I cut Ms. Arakaki at 1 1/2 inches. Ryker at 1 inch.
Center on your pencil and press it on.
Peel off the masking...
I put Ryker's name and the year on the bottom.
I finished off by tying some jute and textured yarn around the groove
that separates the eraser from the body of the pencil.
I wrapped a little bit of tissue paper around it.
This would be great for a first day of school, teacher appreciation week,
or just because your child has a wonderful teacher!
