This week she also really challenged us to step it up.... something other than a card ... think altered item for a teacher or special school friend... but since she's an amazing person she also gave us an "out" ... if we had a difficult time thinking outside of the box, then we could make a school themed card. Well, since I usually make scrapbook pages, I took that I shouldn't make a scrapbook page for this week. I really struggled to come up with something.. and had decided that I would scrap my boys' (last years) back to school photos... but couldn't find them. So, while doing some organizing this week, I came across these little mint tins and thought... oh.. I could make something for ME!
Not only does September mean back to school for the kids, it means back to work for me. I'm a teacher and currently teach "on call" (or substitute as some people call them). In our province we are officially called TTOCs (Teachers Teaching on Call).. but I always just say TOC.
So.. I made myself a little tin for business cards and made up my own business cards that I can leave for teachers when I've been called into their classrooms and I'll also put them up in staff rooms of the schools I go to so other teachers can call me!This is the top of my tin.. and I positioned it in front of the business card... (don't want all my info out on the net - so I covered up my phone and email addy).
Here is the business card. And... I just have to clarify - as my 13 year old niece asked me why it said "BABED" after my name.. it actually stands for Bachelor of Arts, and Bachelor of Education.
And here is the side view - I wrapped some alphabet twill ribbon around it and attached it with Sookwang tape.
