Confession - I've never given my kids birthday gifts. I've always celebrated with them and have some sweet birthday traditions involving cubbies, capes, and love notes (see here) but I never thought to give gifts. I don't have a good reason for being such a loser of a teacher. :)
All that is changing. I tried to come up with a memorable gift that would be worthy of holding onto for a while. I decided to make each one a framed first letter from their name, which for most of them happens to be their favorite letter. Here are my first four.
The good news is that they're dirt cheap to make. I already had everything I needed except the frames, which were under a dollar a piece from the thrift store. The other good news is that they're easy to make.
I even snuck in a little message on each one. Hopefully this will redeem my loser-of-a-teacher status!
Thank you Tara for the linky.
