Cupcake box

So guess what?  I've got more big news.  I'm going to be teaching 3 year old preschool!  It's something I have always wanted to do... and when a job came up last week I took it.  I will be teaching mornings at the preschool where my children went.  My 3 year old niece will be in my class which will be especially fun.  I've been working like crazy getting my room ready.  I couldn't be happier.  Don't worry, I will still be sharing all sorts of crafts and ideas.
I just love children's artwork.  I can't bear to throw it away... and I'm glad I didn't.  My girls are teenagers now, but they loved art when they were little.  This cupcake picture is especially cute if you ask me.

I took it to the fed ex store and color copied it.  I then modpodged it to the top of a paper mache box.

I made a smaller copy and used it as a card.  The rest of the box got covered with scrapbook paper.

Shrink down your kid's art and make their little masterpieces into cards.

I made a handmade book to keep copies of their projects in when they were little.  I keep it out on the coffee table and it still gets looked at over and over.  So sweet.

Happy crafting!
