>>> Unity's Friends with Flair <<<

Hooray, it's the last day of term today. Can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to this day.  It's also the time to give out cards and teachers' gifts too. For my boys' Xmas cards, I made tags instead as it's easier and tags are kept rather than thrown out like cards! Seeing that I had to make about 50 tags, I kept the process simple. I made use of Joy & Wonder stamp set as it's far easier to cut out 50 Xmas trees!


The tags were embossed with Cuttlebug Xmassy-type embossing folders. It was then sprayed with glimmer mists. Background Xmas words were stamped with other stamp company as I don't have a Unity stamp in that image. The Xmas tree was adhered using foam dots and lace trimming was added at the bottom of the tag. Tag was finished off by tying fibres at the top.

As for main teacher's gift, I did a winter survival kit present and added a mug, gloves, sachets of chocolate drink and a chunky kit kat bar. The gloves were plain black ones and I jazzed it up by stamping a heart stamp onto felt and sewing it onto the gloves.


Heart image came from November store kit (one of my favs as it has lots of adorable images).


Here's a closeup of it. Excuse my sewing.... I'm awful at it but still trying!

Finally, made little boxes to store choccies in it for the others. Got the template from Stampington template site. Made use of Nov store kit and {ippity} Kissmas & Mistletoe set (snowman & snowflake).


Cardstock was sprayed with cosmic shimmer onto  a glimmer mist snowflake stencil. Then it was decorated using the stamps.

Can't believe the end of the year is coming soon. Have a merry Christmas and see ya again in the New Year! Thanks for dropping by! TTFN!
