Since I am a complete science nerd, I am always on the look out for fun, science related stuff. I usually just hoard it and never use it. At the end of the Fall semester, I wanted to give the teaching assistants a thank you for all their hard work so I decided to make use of my nerd-ware and make them a little something.
From my hoard, I pulled out my lab ware cookie cutters from Think Geek. And made these cute cookies. I found some neon food coloring at the grocery store that was perfect for the icing and some decorative sprinkles for the fizzy effect.
None of my experiments ever looked this tasty.
Next up was a thank you card in the form of a lab coat. It was made from a half sheet of white card stock, scored on either end at three inches and notched edges that were folded back to look like the collar.
This was the envelope.
I punched a little hole in the upper corner of the envelope and used a ribbon to attach the test tube and thanks tag.
It was a fun little gift and it was nice to be able to share some of my stash of nerdiness.
