It’s that time of year again, when kids are moaning and mom’s are cheering! (At least this mom is.) This also means it’s time for Back to School Teacher Gifts. Don’t get me wrong I love my kids but I also love being able to get my work done and enjoy them when they come home. This year I am making a cute classroom pencil holder to help with organization.

We started school last week here in Atlanta and my youngest started kindergarten. I am so excited for him and after one week it is so quiet at home I’m amazed at what I get done without my old 3 hour carpool gig! This year I took the boys to Staples to buy our school supplies, they are having a great sale and while I was there I ran into Sharpie Heaven. Many of them were on sale so I picked up a pack of Fine Tip markers, broad tip markers, and a pack that are good for writing on clothing so I can label our school uniforms. If you don’t have them on hand grab them quick because the sale is only good while supplies last!

Let me explain, for those of us that craft or organize Sharpie pens are awesome! There are so many things you can do with them, today I used to craft these back to school teacher gifts. This duel bucket I picked up at World Market but you can also order them online.

If you don’t have a fancy cutting machine, don’t worry, this craft is easy. I just bought a tag and traced it on some paper. Next I cut it out with a small pair of craft scissors.

Our teacher, Mrs. Neu, has decorated her room in bright green and giraffe print so I bought paper in both colors. I cut the giraffe print to fit my buckets and used a corner punch to round the corners.

 Then I wrote on my cut out tag Sharp and Dull with a fine point sharpie marker. I don’t have the best penmanship so I went over it a few times to make it more bold and to even it out.

I used Mod Podge to attach the labels to my buckets. Make sure to put Mod Podge on your paper and the surface of the bucket, this will allow you to move it around, if you need to, once you put it on the bucket. Let it dry for 5 minutes before you put a top coat on the zebra print paper. Once that dries then repeat the process with the green label.

Then I grabbed my broad tipped Sharpie in Lime Green and a fine tip in brown and made some stripes on the top of the bucket.

Here is the sharp side of the bucket for sharpened pencils.

 And the Dull side for pencils that need to be sharpened. I also took one of my tag templates and wrote with my brown fine tip marker ” We can’t wait to SHARPEN our skills this year”

 Now it’s all ready to give to Mrs. Neu to help organize her classroom. Now kids can just to put in dull pencils and grab a sharp one when they need to.

  5. What a great idea! I know how annoying it is to look for a sharp pencil and I can imagine a teacher would find dull ones all over the place!
