Fun & Easy Recycled Teacher Gift

With the end of the school year approaching fast, I needed to get my teacher gift done for my son's kindergarten teacher. She is the best teacher ever, I am so sad that my kids are done with her!
I had these old metal TV trays, I took all of the legs off, jut knowing I could make something fun. 
Step 1. Tape the edges using FROG tape. 

 Step 2. Paint 2-3 coats of chalkboard paint over the metal. Let dry in between each coat.
 Step. 3 Trace the curved edges, and use mod podge to adhere paper. I used it on the bottom and over the top to seal it.
 Step 4. Embellish! I added ric rak and used hot glue for the buttons in the corners.

 Step 5. Use a crop-a-dile to punch holes for the ribbon to hang it.
Step 6. Make cute coordinating magnets!! 
Tomorrow I am going to let Zach write on it himself and write her a letter about his favorite things he learned in Kindergarten that I will attach with the magnets!
