>>> On Display! <<<

Before we left the UK, I made a few 'thank you' gifts for the boys' teachers. I took the simple route and bought a few calendar planners which I decorated. Made use of a lot of patterned papers that I had accumulated over the years. Gosh, it felt good that they were being used.

Patterned papers by Scarlet Lime exclusive papers (not sure which kit!)

I also created small pizza boxes to put choccies & mint sweets in. Bought a huge bag of them from Costco and filled them up in these boxes. These boxes were easy to assembly, from a mere 6x12" sheet. The front of the boxes were simply decorated with stamps and I added a little finishing touches. Well, you can tell which boxes were for the lady teachers!

Thick patterned papers work best for assembling these boxes. Incidentally, I found the instructions from Splitcoast Stampers site but modified it a little to suit the length of the paper I was using.

Thankfully, all the 'thank you' cards were created while completing challenges for 365 Cards! Thank goodness for that! All I did was got the boys to write their 'thank you's in it. TTFN!
