Teachers gifts...

Well the school breaks up for the summer holidays next Tuesday, so today I have been making teacher Gifts. I made these little boxes and filled them with Roses chocolates. Yummy Yum !!

But when I showed my DS them, he announces that his teacher doesn't want chocolates. What!!!. My first reaction was, well she is getting chocolates or nothing. But then when I thought about it, perhaps she couldn't eat chocs, so decided to make some small 3x3 thank you cards to match the box.

The little box was made from instructions from the UStamp site here. Mine is in Real Red card stock. The band around the box is Whisper White card, stamped with the Spot On jumbo roller in Real Red ink. Real Red ribbon is tied around. The box is finished off with sentiment from Circle of Friendship set stamped in Real Red onto White card, punched out then layered onto a scallop of Real Red card.
The little 3x3 notelets have been made with the same materials as the box, so they all match nicely.

I have been busy making other things today as well, but the light turned so bad because of the rain we have, I couldn't photograph them. Hopefully I will be able to get some tomorrow.
