Teachers' Gifts

Hello Again Folks

Well I did manage to have a bit of a lie in this morning - I was reading til about quarter to nine, then it was up to get some washing in the machine.

Today I'm showing the gifts I made for teachers and teaching assistants at school this week.

These were for the teachers:

They are mini easel card boxes - I followed the tutorial here - they were really easy to make. I've seen them lots of times before and never had the courage to try them. This Tilda is the perfect size for these 3" cards. I would like to make a set of mini cards with envelopes to give as a gift sometime.

I added some little wooden butterfly pegs and flower paperclips, and stamped a thank you message on a mini post it pad as the gift inside the drawer.

I'm entering these boxes in the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter - For the birds - anything with wings - I've sparkled Tilda's wings with stickles
Craft Your Days Away - Fancy Folds - I hope these boxes and easel cards on top count for that
One Stitch At a Time - Anything Goes

I'll show the teaching assistant gift boxes later - my son wants the computer!

See you soon.

Love, Andrea xx
