Every year for Christmas, I give my kids' teachers Name Frames as gifts. This year I had to make two for my 5th grader as she has two teachers. I try to make each name frame different when i do them plus I have the kids find out what their favorite colors are and try to go from there.
I pulled out Stampendous set called School for Changito. It's perfect for any teacher related project and what my daughter picked out to use for her male teacher, Mr.Bair. Using an SU retired alphabet set, I stamped in red on to white cardstock. Used curved rectangle Nestablities to cut out the cardstock. JustRite Brayton Font was used to spell out MR. and Nestabilities Labels One was used to cut it out. Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner was used to attach all the letters and cardstock. I stamped the images right on the cardstock and colored them in with prismacolor pencils and copic markers. I then stamped Changito again, colored him and cut him out. Using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots, I attached him over his image to give him some 3-d look without having to worry about trying to cut out his tail.
For Mrs.Dill's name frame, I used the same alphabet set as above but stamped them in blue. I then distressed the edges a little with Tim Holtz vintage distress ink. Used the same Nestablities to cut them out and also the same JustRite Brayton Font for the MRS. I stamped Brocade Motifs on the background cardstock to give it some flair. Added ribbon across the middle before attaching the letters with Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner. Using Helmar Gemstone Glue, I attached brown and white/cream buttons to the letters. I then used SU's Bird w/Leaves Sizzix die cut for two blue birds and some leaves. I attached them using Helmar's newest product, Helmar Zapdots as I wanted some dimension but couldn't have a lot as there would still be glass to put in.
