Teacher Treats

As it's the last day of term (and the very last day of pre-school) for Maisie, I made some goodies for all of her teachers. I got the idea for the treat pouch from Debbie at Country Heart and Home (very clever lady), and it was the perfect size for slipping in a really cute Thorntons Fairy chocolate bar. I used core-dinations cardstock and sanded it down, and used jute rather than ribbon for a more natural, earthy look. The butterflies matched the paper really well (and were a bargain as they were a freebie on the front of a craft magazine reduced to 30p!!!!). I could not fit the other gift into the pouch, (which was a personalised pen), so, as it was getting late at this point, I made a little gift bag. I simply wrapped some of the matching paper around the pen, secured the paper with glue dots and then tied a little jute handle and matching bow. The card carried the same theme and papers as the treat pouch so it all matches and they will remember which bits we gave them!!! I am a little nervous about handing them over as this will be the first proper thing I have made and given out, so I hope they like it!
On a completely different subject, I have been shopping again and my craft stock is now building nicely - although this does raise the question of where am I going to put it all?!!
