Hi all. I don't venture over to this forum often as I am not a teacher, but I am going to be training my children's school staff on using the Expression that they received when I bought one at Michael's back in August. They have requested to do some sort of a gift project for their parent volunteers. Any ideas?

A little late but- One thing they could do with it is cut snowflakes for the kids to decorate and glitter. Then put a pic of themselves on the snowflakes for a paper ornaments. cut out many 2010 for them to glue on the back side,too.

I made t shirts with my class last year and plan to do the same this year, too. We cut shapes and phrases we wanted - put them on top of the shirts- then we used the spray fabric paint now available over top- then after drying a bit took the shapes off and you have a cool looking t shirt. My clas theme is Rock Stars so we did stars, guitars, and the year on the back, too.

Hope this helpful.
Have a Merry Christmas!

I hope they do the buy a cricut give a cricut again this summer- I'd love to have one at our school as well as one at home!

What about something similar to (or the same as) the snowman note cards recently posted in here. I think that most people would love to receive cards like that.

purchase some of the smallest yellow legal pads, make a scrapbook cover for them and then embellish it with cricut diecuts. Everyone can use notepads and these would be quick to do and something to use after the new year. You can also add a loop tab to the backside when gluing on the back cover and then add a pen...............

I really should have taken a picture of them. I'll look and see if I can find a pic of them- We also did the same thing for my daughter's sleep over Bday party- only we did pillowcases instead of t shirts. I'll see if I can get a pic of that too. It may be later in the week.

I have a few ideas on my blog-I love to recycle containers so if you want something quick and simple use a Crystal Light container and put in fudge, candy, cookies, or a gift card. The Crystal Light containers are easy to wrap with cardstock and you can cut out any holiday shape using the Cricut, add ribbon and your done!! :) Good luck with your parent gifts. Merry Christmas!

For parent volunteers, I decorated Hershey candy bars. I took off the wrapper, covered them with cute paper and then cut out monograms and scalloped circles from Storybook. I embellished them with gems. Turned out cute!

For kid-made presents, I cut out a bunch of the charmed images from Doodlecharms on heavier cardstock. The kids loved decorating them.

I also had the kids make origami picture frames. No cricut used but it was a good way to make a present from paper I had on hand! http://www.instructables...n-origami-picture-frame/

I teach 4th grade and all my kids were able to make these just by following the websites directions.
