This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Office Depot, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirestudents http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Have your kids gone back to school??  Mine still have a week at home but we are totally gearing up to get them their!  New clothes, backpacks and school supplies are on the list! We think so much about getting our kids ready but today I wanted to share a little something for the teachers! 
I love a great Teacher! I have a few I remember fondly.  They helped me grow, learn who I am and became great inspirations in my life.  So now as I watch my own kids head out to school I want to give a little back. With a little help from Office Depot and Photoshop I came up with this fun giving basket for a special teacher.  Packed with school supplies just for him or her!

Covered Corkboards

Next week is Free Time Frolics Birthday.  Make sure come back and check out some great guest blogger and a fantastic giveaway!

On to this week.
Teacher Appreciation was last week and I am a little behind.  I have had this one in my cue for a while needing 1 picture.  I finally got it done.  So here is a quick easy teacher gift you can do with afew supplies from you home and a couple of dollar store items.

Piece of Cork
Spray paint (optional)
Spray Adhesive
Buttons to Cover
Fat quarter or enough fabric to cover your cork
E6000 Glue
Glue Gun w/ Glue
Frame backing or foam core
2 or 3 fabric scraps (2x2 squares) for tacks

Start by spray painting your frame is you are changing its color.  This can be drying while you make the inside.

Start by Cutting your cork to the inside size of your frame.  Take fabric and cut it 1 inch larger around cork.  Iron your fabric nice and flat to get out wrinkles.
Spray adhesive onto wrong side of fabric.  Layer cork and frame backing onto fabric. Flip over to ensure the fabric is nice and flat.

Glue fabric around foam core and cork. On Wrong side. 

Your inside board is done. Now for the tacks
 Use the buttons covered found in the sewing accessories in the fabric department.  I chose the smaller size but you can use whatever you want.  Follow the instructions on the back of the package to cover your buttons.

Once you have made your buttons you need to cut off the button shanks to give you a flat surface to glue the tacks on. 
Glue your tacks on the backs of your buttons with E6000 Glue.  They will need to dry over night. 
Place your wrapped cork into the frame.

Add your tacks and your done.

This is a quick project you can make in an hour or so and easy for the kids to help.  Wrap it up and your ready to go. Use it for a teacher gift, kids bedroom, family command center or anywear you need to cover some space.
