Inexpensive, easy Teacher Gifts

This is a variation on covering journals and other notebooks. I found these swivel notepads at our Craft Warehouse for a dollar each, and thought, well, they would be much cuter with cute paper covering them. As I've done previously, I traced the notepad shape on the chosen paper, cut it out and glued it on. I used sandpaper to sand the edges of the paper off the pad to make it cleaner looking, and then inked. I added a flower and button in the middle and a little bit of Stickles glitter glue. The childcare workers I gave them to really liked them. Easy gift, not too time consuming... not a whole lot of brain pain involed.. always a plus!
