Teacher thank you gifts

| Posted in Boxes, bags, hostess gifts, etc, Cardmaking

I love giving presents!   Have I mentioned that before?   🙂 At the end of the year I love to give a present to my children’s teachers.   I know how hard they work and want to be able to offer a small token of my appreciation.   For today’s post I wanted to share some gifts I made for my children’s Teachers.

First the thank you card

PATTERNED PAPER: Berry Blossoms

STAMP SET: (A la Carte) -Triple Treat flower; (Hostess Set)- Perfect Words

PUNCHES: Decorative label punch, Fancy flower punch, 5 petal flower punch

BIG SHOT ACCESSORIES: Little leaves sizzlet die, Many Thanks sizzlet die,

EMBELLISHMENTS: Designer printed brads (In Colour), 1 cm ruffled ribbon

COLOURS: Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder

I also made matching boxes to hold a gift! I used the Petal Cone die for the first time and I love love love it! It is one of those Bigshot dies that I flicked past in the catalogue (pg 160 by the way) MANY times and just didn’t see the potential!

What was I thinking!?

This die is fabulous and I can’t believe I didn’t realise the possibilities!  The petal die can be left open or folded- and even when folding it there are lots of options depending on whether you attach the tabs or not!   It also cuts out little labels when you pass it through the bigshot so you can add a sentiment or someone’s name!   This die would be fabulous for lolly bags for child’s birthday party, they would make gorgeous decorations on the Christmas tree (that could be filled with goodies).  You could even flip them over and make them into witches hats for a Halloween party or spooky themed party!  You need not even make them into a box- you could just use the panels to make a love heart shaped card!    You really need to get your hands on one of these dies (Just ask me and I’ll pop in an order for you!)  In the meantime- here is what I made!

I made a few more bits and pieces for the small gifts at the end of the year.  Please be sure to check back tomorrow!
