Gifts for Teachers

Morning all, I'm up and about early with the larks today as Sophie has a baton twirling competition...although they are twirling ribbons today as well....very confusing lol!

I finally managed to find some time to make some little gift bags for Sophie's teachers...I started by making a box for the inside and then attaching my biggest square scalloped nesties to the front and back of the boxes and finally decorating them! The first one took ages but once I'd got my dimensions sorted I was well away lol! I've also made matching cards...this was Sophie's idea and kind of cool...I think lol! TFL :)

Coloured Card stock : SU (Bags and Cards)
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Design Papers : Carol Ann & Nitwit Collections 'Grins & Giggles Too'
Embellishments : Ribbons, Gems and Brads all from my stash
Tools : Martha Stewart Scalloped Border Punch

These are lovely Donna, I'm sure they will be received very well.
Managing to blog hop by going onto the individual posts instead of the blogs. Otherwise I can see your text but no piccies. It is so tedious - I'm going to the computer shop tomorrow to see if we can buy another router to get faster.
