Teaching and a great dollar idea

I came up with this idea a few months ago during a craft show. Found a dollar stack of cute styled playing cards for a buck at Michaels and went from there:




I punched a hole on one side of the card and tied a little string, or you can use ribbon inside of it.
On the other side, the design choices included this animal print.
I cut card stock and stamped TO and FROM and modged podged it on.



People at the fair LOVED them and if you think about the cost....52 cards for a dollar, you can sell them for real cheap and still get the cost back to you fast.


People at craft shows love a little area to rummage through and this was my caddy of epherma and magnets and gift tags that you can see our project in!


Teaching........I've been contemplating getting a second masters in teaching. An MTA, masters in teaching arts. I want to get a vocal pedagogy degree but those are hard to find in Georgia.
Early education is what I want to focus on.
Combining both my degree in music and a degree in education could propel me to be a great elementary music teacher I believe.



You think I should pursue an entire second masters or is there any easier path to become a certified teacher?

Awesome idea for gift tags! I can imagine them selling really well on Etsy!

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog :)

What a great tag idea! So cute :) We have a ton of card decks around here, and with 2 kids most of them probably don't have all 52 cards. What better way to reuse them? Thanks for sharing.

Good luck with your decision on going back to school.

What a simple and cute idea! Love it.

Also wanted to get back to you on your URL question on my blog, I decided to get my own after 2 years of blogging and when I became more active with design teams, primarily because I started on Wordpress.com, and they don't allow advertising of any kind (even for yourself), so that was the push. Hope that helps, but email me anytime! :)
