We have some fun ideas for making gifts for your children's teachers. Check out how our Biker Chicks used the Makin' the Grade collection to make a few projects.
Altered Folder Cover from Biker Chick Jenny Chesnick
I remember being a kid and always have all of my 8x10 class photos in an album. That inspired my Teacher's gift project. I used a school binder from my local big box store and decorated the front. For the inside I used 8.5x11 page protectors and lined them with paper for my teach to add her photos through the years!

Altered Pen Set by Biker Chick Tania Willis
Teachers always need an abundance of pens, whether they be for grading papers, writing notes to send home, or to loan out to a student. So, naturally, pens make for a great teacher’s gift. Next time you’re at the store, grab a pack or two of clear-shell pens that have a bottom that is easily removable and you’ll be set to make your child’s teacher a set of decorative pens. The ones I used were the R.S.V.P. style by Pentel, sold in a 2-pack for less than $1. It’s as simple as removing the bottom and taking out the pen insert. Then, cutting your paper to 1” x 3 ¼”, rolling it tight (rolling around a skewer helps), then inserting it into the empty shell. Finally, put the pen stick back inside and replace the bottom piece.
