Teacher Presents Complete - Hooray!

Well ,of course they are finished as we gave them to the teacher's last Thursday and that was the second last day of school. I am never going to leave them to be completed so late again!!!
My last entry said I was going to start them on that day, which was Saturday, so , of course, I didn't touch them at all and finally got them started on Sunday night.

I didn't photograph Sebastian's teacher's present as i didn't alter it much. It was an Essendon tin lunchbox so i just added some red and black ribbon to the handle and a tag in red and black lettering that said Mr Payton's stuf! he also got an Essendon beer mug.

Sam was in Year 7 this year, and my best buddy Kim, informed me that Mitchell, her son in year 8, told her that you don't give high school teachers presents. It just isn't cool. I discussed this with Sam and he decided that he didn't care if it wasn't cool, he still wanted me to make Kate a present. Sam's high school is also organised a bit differently as Sam had his teacher Kate for most things every day, and only went off to specialist classes for things like art and Wood Tech (which Sam loathed with a passion).

So I decorated a clipboard for Kate. The stripey strips are just the reverse of the sun paper. I put her name on it in 3 different sorts of stickers in the corners. The back was covered in the stripey reverse of the sun paper. I had already painted the edges of the board orange ages ago.

I also decorated a small notebook that I picked up at the supermarket which luckily already had an orange cover!

Georgia had two teachers this year and she loved every minute she was with them. She informed me that Miss Narres liked owls and Mrs Winship liked pirates. I had these tins up on my shelf for ages. I think originally I was going to decorate one for Georgia but never got around to it. I liked the owl one so much when I finished it I wanted to keep it for myself!

Branches I had in my stash. I think they were originally from a CK kit of the month. Owl was a diecut I bought to use on a page but it was too big. I just enhanced his feathers with some sparkle gel and added some bling to his eyes which were just pinpoints.

  3. Thank you Shelley and extra thanks for coming back to visit my blog again, especially at this hectic time of year. I must admit I am using my bit of email/blogging time (when I can beat the kids off and get on myself)as relaxation time between bouts of Christmas frenzy!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!
