Say thank you to your newest teacher this year with a recycled craft idea that is adorable and useful. These cute tin can crafts allow teachers to organize their pens, pencils, and other supplies in a charming and convenient way. As cheap to make as they are thoughtful, the Teacher Gift Tin Can Crafts are fantastic teacher gift ideas. Instead of gifting your teacher with candy the kids will beg for or a one-time coffee gift card, give them something that they will appreciate for days to come.

In the Designer's Words: "Don't toss those tin cans anytime soon; they may be just what you need for your next craft project! Learn how I used a collection of everyday soup and juice cans to create a trio of back to school teacher gifts. Scrapbook paper and craft glue is all that is needed to create these desk catch all, school supply organizers or back to school teacher gifts. Fill with pencils, sweet treats or flowers to kick start a new school year!"
