This year, I had an idea that I was excited about and when I shared the thought with Hannah's teacher she was pretty excited as well... so I went with it!
Photo-booths seem to be all the rage the past few years for weddings, parties, etc... especially the make-it-yourself variety... and thanks to some fabulous ideas found via Pintrest... I developed this idea for a 'parent gift' for each student to give their parents this year.
Each student was able to choose three props, I took their photos, edited them into photo strips, and had them printed at Costco. To take it a step further, John cut plywood boards to size and drilled holes in the tops, then I painted them a Christmas-y red color and used Collage Pauge to attach the photo strips to the boards. (Ok- yes, it sounds super involved, but really once you do a sort-of assembly line, it wasn't too bad at all!)
And, voila! The final product :-)
And here are the props I used! All were cut using my Silhouette machine, and hot glued to skewer sticks.
Merry Christmas to the parents in Hannah's class this year!!
