Bottle Cap Teacher Appreciation Gifts: Magnets, Push Pins & Bookmarks
This year we are involving the students in the teacher appreciation gifts - and all the gifts involve bottle caps.
We are giving each teacher a set of 8 push pins, a couple of bookmarks and a handful of magnets, personalized with their student's artwork.
Students draw pictures within a 1 inch space. (I made a template in word to show them how small 1" circles are.)
We cut out the art with a 1" punch which fits perfectly within the bottle caps. The images shown here were cut out of magazines.
The rest is simple assembly. Glue the picture into the bottle cap, stick the "resin dot" over the top, and glue a magnet, bookmark, or push pin to the back. I used Amazing Goop glue, and allowed it to dry for at least 24 hours before using the items.
I have listed all the websites I used to purchase the hardware, and the wonderful thing is - the supplies are inexpensive - even in small quantities!
This picture shows how we are presenting the magnets. I printed a thank you note onto a label, cut it out into a circle, and stuck it on the front of a canning lid. The canning lid holds the magnets and makes them easy to present as a gift.
This would be a great idea for kids in a family to give their teachers - because everyone can use magnets, pushpins and bookmarks - and it can be sweet and personalized!
