Each year I try to come up with something a little unique to give my boys’ teachers. This year I made bottle topper tags, gift tags and Christmas cards, all using paper from the Year of Cheer Suite.
The first gift….Instead of giving alcohol, I use non alcoholic drinks and in this instance have used Lemon Lime and Bitters cordial (there’s nothing like a tall refreshing glass of lemon, lime & bitters mixed with soda water and ice on a hot Summer’s day!), added a bottle topper tag, wrapped the whole lot in cellophane, added red, gold and silver ribbon rope, some Christmas bells, a bauble and gift bow to finish it off.
The sentiment on the bottle topper tag is from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set. I stamped it in Real Red ink and heat embossed it using glitter embossing powder I have in my craft stash.
The second gift is a ‘coffee’ (I use the term loosely, as I don’t drink coffee!) cup filled with Hershey’s Candy Cane kisses. I decorated the outside of the cup. Made a little tray to hold the cup, decorated the outside of that too. Wrapped the tray and cup in cellophane and decorated with a handmade Christmas tag, added some red and silver ribbon rope to secure and a silver gift bow to finish it off. Sentiment on the tag is also from the Watercolour Christmas stamp set.
The tag uses the Tag Topper Scalloped punch, die cut elements from the Pretty Pines and Swirly Snowflake thinlit die sets, the oval and circle from the Stitched Shape framelit die set.
The card was made with Whisper White cardstock, paper from the Year of Cheer Suite, Champagne Foil sheet, die cut elements from the Pretty Pines thinlits die set, a banner embossed with the Seaside Textured Impressions embossing folder and the sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.
I hope the teacher’s like their gifts!
Do you make teacher’s gifts? I’d love to hear from you.
Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
Follow your bliss. x
