Are you looking for a creative way to donate school supplies to a deserving teacher and/or school? Check out this creative and easy to make tiered “Cake” using school supplies! The best part is you can use the supplies like I did in my example or you can use what you have in your stockpile. What a great way to take advantage of all the amazing back to school deals found on Hip2Save.com!
Place two rubber bands around the middle of the largest bottom box and then place desired school supplies around the edges – under the rubber bands.
Stack and attach the middle box using heavy duty mounting tape, and repeat the steps of using rubber bands to hold school supplies.
Do the same with the top box. Note: I decided to not use the lid for the top tier so it can hold the wipes and hand sanitizer inside instead.
Lastly, cover rubber bands with decorative tape or ribbon.

Feeling crafty and want to make something special to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day next week? Try making this super easy and cute pencil vase sure to brighten any teacher’s day!
To make this project you’ll need:
Vase (pictured is a 6 inch rectangle shaped vase from the craft store)
Pencils ( I used about 40)
Ribbon (pictured ribbon is from Michael’s Craft Store)
Start with one corner and attach pencils with hot glue to the vase, making sure they are straight up and down. I also made sure the writing on the pencil was facing the same direction but that’s totally up to you. It’s easier to put a line of glue on the vase and press down a pencil to attach. Go all the way around the vase until covered. Tie ribbon around the middle and add flowers.
That’s it! Super easy, fun and affordable. I even used flowers from my own yard! I think my child’s teacher will love this, don’t you?
Mark your calendars as Teacher Appreciation Day is May 6th! And gift cards are an easy and much appreciated way to say thanks to all the wonderful teachers in your life. If you are indeed planning to purchase gift cards, here are four cute (and free!) printable gift card holders that I’ve designed for you! Enjoy!
To use, just print and attach gift card to the front of the card. If you like, you can even go a step further and attach the printed holder to a slightly larger decorative piece of scrapbooking or construction paper. As you can see, I’ve also embellished further with some twine around a couple of my gift cards.
