Sparking Motivation Saturday freebie and Our Clipart Giveaway Winners

I am linking up with my dear friend Joanne for her:

This is not so much a motivator for students, but for teachers.

A week or so ago I posted about this pin I came across as a guest blogger at my friend Christy's blog:

And I explained how I wanted to make one for my daughter's teacher this year because now my daughter is in 4th grade so one of my teammates gets to teach her!  So, since I know her so well, I thought I might send in a "survival kit" for her!

I bought her a supply box from Walmart that looks like a tin lunchbox.  It's thinner than a lunchbox, but I wasn't sure that she'd want a lunchbox with Batman or Hello Kitty, so I tried to play it safe.  I got a cute one that is hot pink one with black mustaches!!  Hopefully she will think it's cute!!

I made this "sign" to put the outside:
The background and clipart is from Glitter Meets Glue Designs and the font is from Cara Carroll!

I haven't decided if I want to Mod Podge the sign on or just tape it...she may want to use it for something else once everything is used out of it and she may want to take the sign off...I'm still thinking on that one.  What do you think I should do?  Tape or Mod Podge?

I made it a png file because if you'd like to use this, you may have a different sized box than I have so you can resize it.  If you'd like to download it, click on it and then right click and choose save image as and that's all you have to do!!

If you want to see more about what I was going to put in the box, go check out the post at  Christy's blog:.  :O)

  1. The teacher survival box is a cute idea. Thanks for sharing.


  2. The teacher survival kit is adorable. I'd use tape, that way she can use it for something else if she chooses too.

  3. So close yet so far away... Christy was almost spelled right and my middle name starts with an R, haha :)

    I love your take on the pin. So fun!

  4. Love that teacher survival kit idea! Your daughter's teacher will love it and you! She will definitely be motivated by your kind gesture! I think you should print it on a full page label! :O)
    Thanks for linking up and sharing friend!

  5. What a fun idea! I have a new found love for Mod Podge so I would go with that. : )

  6. I love that teacher survival kit!! How fun! I would go with mod lodge because I think it looks more professional and personalized than tape. If I received it as a gift, I probably wouldn't be using the box anytime soon for something else. I wish I knew my daughter's teacher for next year better so I could make one of these for her!
