Teacher Appreciation

I know the clearance price tag


that these were

$1.25 and $2.50 BUT Oh!!


They were in fact only $.15 each. I snatched them up and the only thing I can think to do with it is make a padded bulletin/message board for the teachers. I would use the thumb tacks to secure the ribbons at each crossing and then mount the binder clips around the edges and randomly about? Do you have any greater ideas for these MANY thumb tacks and binder clips?




    You can get the plastic boxes with only four dividers at Target in the $1 bin!!! Can't wait to see what you do!


    Here is another (SMALLER) one.
    I might have to run out and look for $.15 stuff and make these. Did you get those at Office Depot or Walmart?

  3. B.K, I got them at Wally's.
    They have been on clearance since school started! They had a jillion boxes of marked down school supplies that were still too expensive to be considered 'clearance' so they put them in the back, brought them out after halloween, than again at Christmas with the clearance things, then put them back and brought them out again. FInally this week they have everything marked down to resonable prices!!!

  4. I made some for my kids' teachers and attached a little note - the pushpins said "thanks for stickin with me" and the binder clips said "thanks for helping me keep it together"

  5. Here's an idea for the tacks:

    Can't wait to see what you come up with! ;)
