Here are Groovy Kids Madison and Matthew!

Today the duo of Madison and Matthew are here to show us really lovely gifts they have created for their teachers. Here is what Madison had to share about hers:

















Today I'm going to tell you about a clipboard I made for my 1st grade teacher Mrs. West. This clipboard was a present I made for her at the end of my school year. The best part about making this clipboard was making the punch art monkey faces!
My teacher Mrs. West was really happy to get her new clipboard, and she started using it right away, and hugged me several times! :)
Here's what we used to make her gift:
1 clipboard, our's was an old used one we found, that was still in good shape.
Quick Quotes Pattern Paper:
Cherry Truffle - Item Number - QQP-CT300
Cherry Truffle - Item Number - QQP-CT400
We also used small amounts of cardstock in brown, white, black, red and tan.
Assorted ribbons by Offray, where used at the top and the bottom strip of beige.

For the monkey we used the following punches:
Small circle - this was both parts of the eyes, and the inner circle of the ears.
Large scalloped circle - Head
Med. Circle - this was the outer portion of the ears.
Large oval - this was the mouth, we had to make it a little smaller so we folded it and trimmed the ends.
Tiny Bow - This was used to make one monkey a girl.
She then used a sharpie marker to make the nose and lips.
We wanted our teachers to really use our gift, so we didn't make them really fancy. Clipboards will also need to be covered with varnish or decoupage.
























Here is what Matthew had to say about his:



















This is the clipboard I made for my 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Boulware. She was super excited when I gave it to her. She loves getting presents. The best part about making this project was getting to smear glue all over the clipboard before we stuck the paper to it.
Here is what we used:

1 used clipboard that was still in good shape.
1 used clipboard as long as it still works.
Quick Quotes pattern paper:
French Quarter - Item number - QQP-FH400
French Quarter - Item number - QQP- FH300
This was my grandson's clipboard he is 8.
The large flower on the top is a McGill Punch, but the inner part of the flower was fancy cut from the pattern paper.
A bunch of different ribbons by Offray, where used at the top.
