Have you ever wondered how you could make pencils or pens look good with a gift. I found this idea somewhere so I used it! You get your pencils and wrap some embroidery floss around them and tie it through a button. I think it just makes them look that little bit special. Then I added them to a fabric covered notebook.
This one for Nathan's teacher (along with some Gloria Jeans coffee vouchers).
And this one for Emma's prep teacher-aide.
Lastly, here are mine and Toni's thank you gifts for the parents who help us out in our classroom. I made each parent a lavender bird...
And Toni made each one a key fob. We added a small box of delicious chocolates and got this little parcel. We are hoping they like it.
I'll be back to share more later, I am busy sewing and paper crafting and luckily crossing some things off my long, long list!
