Today marks for the first day of school holidays here. I love the school holidays as it is generally a break from the normal hectic routine. I have an insane amount of stuff to get done in the next week in the lead up to Christmas but I am very much looking forward to the relaxation that will come after Christmas.
It was quite surreal picking up my kids from school yesterday afternoon knowing that it was the last day of Pre-Primary for Erin and Adam and also the last day of Year 2 for Jared. They have had such great Teachers and Education Assistants this year and the kids said thank-you with a little gift they gave their Teachers and EAs at this beginning of the week!
Each little box had an item of jewellery for the teachers and assistants. The kids picked out the items that they thought they would like best.
Each box with embossed with either gold or silver embossing powder and the BAROQUE wheel. I also embossed one of the layer of the butterflies (from BUTTERFLY PRINTS) on the top of the boxes. I placed a rhinestone in the centre of each butterfly. The rhinstones are actually the centres from the rhinestone brads. The brads are silver around the edges and I didn’t think they would work on the boxes I had embossed with gold embossing powder so I removed the rhinestones from all of the fixtures and secured them in place using glue dots.
I used a circle punch on the front of each box to make it easier to flip the lid on each box and reveal the goodies inside!
Each box was finished off with a strip of ribbon to match the colours in the item of jewellery inside.
