It's Teacher Appreciation Week this week, so my son is doing little things for his teacher each day. Monday is 'hug your teacher day', Tuesday he's taking in a thank you note, Wednesday a flower, Thursday some English sweets, Friday is 'whatever you would like to do for your teacher day'.
When I saw the link to these wire bookmarks on Crafty Crow this morning, I decided that I might add a little wire apple bookmark to Friday's offering. A bit of bending wire and hammering later and here's my apple:
Is it recognisable as an apple?
The end of the school year is really sneaking up on me. It's about time that I started making the end of year gifts for the kids' teachers. I wish my son could stay in Kindergarten forever - I could not have asked for a nicer teacher than the one he has now.
Ok, got to run. Take care all.
Edit: I used 19 gauge annealed wire, as that was the only wire I had in the house. Pliers were used to bend the stalk and the end of the leaf, but the rest I just shaped by hand. I hammered it on a metal surface, until it was flat. I have no clue if this is the 'proper' method.
