Christmas Rewind – Masculine Gifts

As promised, I am sharing gifts I made for Christmas. These are some gifts I made for my son’s Sunday School teachers.

blue calendar

This is just a 4 x 6 acrylic frame that you can purchase at Walmart for about $1. I put a piece of scrapbook paper in the frame. I used my ATG gun to adhere a piece of paper on the side that I had matted to cardstock and tied a piece of twine around. The calendar is bound by brads then glued to a piece of cardstock. I used a piece of sticky tape to adhere it to the frame.

Greg F calendar

My son shares a special bond with this teacher, so I wanted to do something a little more personal. I took a picture of them together, played around with it in Photoshop and printed it. I then put it in the frame and adhered the calendar directly to the frame after binding it with brads and adhering it to cardstock.

There you go…great gifts for under $2 each.

I’ll be back with more gifts soon. I am trying to get back into our school routine. Man is that hard after taking a couple of weeks off. Things are slowly getting back to normal. Yeah!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
