Christmas Gifts

The last week I have busily been making a few Christmas Gifts for teachers at school and a few other people that I give something small to.

For the teachers at school, it is just a small gift as each class also collects money to buy one combined present (much better for the teachers I'm sure as they are not ending up with multitudes of chocolates & candles!!!). My kids like to give their own presents to their teachers as well so I made these cute little milk cartons with the caddy. Each caddy holds 4 mini milk cartons. The mini milk cartons are made from a Big Shot Die and the caddy is just a template I have. These are so, so cute and definitely give the wow factor. They are fairly simple as well...a little time consuming, but not difficult.

The cute flower that is on the caddy is my new favourite thing to make right now. It is very easy and looks very effective. You just need the scallop circle punch. In the new year I might post some instructions on how to make it.

The teachers were very grateful for the present. In case you are wondering, the mini milk cartons are filled with M&Ms, Favourites Chocolates, jelly type chocolates and jelly beans.

The other gift I made was for the ladies in the school office. I have a lot to do with them as I am part of the P&C and they are always so helpful so I wanted to give them something small to say thanks. I made some Rocky Road and packaged it up.

Again I have used the cool flower...told you I like it! These little boxes were so easy to make and they look really effective. The recipients loved them!

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to leave me a comment so I know you've been here!

I will be back in a couple of days to show you the Christmas cards each of my kids made for their friends.
