Thanks For All You DEW!

It's that time again...time to start thinking of ideas for teacher appreciation week.  Yup that's right...ONE MONTH from now!  It scares me to think of the school year ending that soon!  There's still so much to do, so much to fit in, and nobody who wants to listen to me.  Ok so maybe that's how my day went today, but I do know that it gets that way as the weather gets warmer.
So for the next month I am going to focus on sharing some door decorating ideas or possible gift ideas.  If you have something you would like to share that relates to this topic; pictures of doors, appreciation/gift ideas, or a link to your site, please feel free to leave a comment.
Check out this awesome 3-D door from my school last year.  (Thanks for all you DEW!)  From what I could tell, the Mountain Dew can was created using a poster board, bent to form an arch.  The arch was then taped onto another poster board to hold its' form and then painted.  The yellow "Mountain Dew" coming out of the top of the can was crinkled (yellow) tissue paper.  I can't remember how the straw was created.  Any guesses?  I'm sure you could roll up red poster board or some kind of plastic to form one though??  What do you think?
