Gift Wrapping for a BEAD!!

Me again!!

We decided to get Zoe a Pandora bracelet for Christmas!! She is very hard to buy for and this way we can keep adding to it for her!! Never a worry about what to buy again!! YAY!! So she got the bracelet with a 'Z' charm, heart charm and little handbag charm from us and then Jayden and Owen each gave her an 'O' and an 'E' (The O being from Owen!! - of course!! lol) So now she has her whole name!! I wanted to package the beads from the boys in a nice way, instead of just the bag that they give at the shop. These are also from Timeless Templates and are 'Cash or Charge' they are little Gift Card holders!! So Cute!! and Zoe loved them too!

I also ended up with a Pandora bracelet for Christmas, from Wendy!! Zoe and I are now creating our 'wishlists' for future charms!! lol!!

Till Next Time...

Some Chrissy Gifts

Hello to you all!! I am running a bit late with these couple of posts, so will pop them up quickly now! I have not had the best of years this year, with rotten migraines!! and have had a bit of time off work, I don't like it when other people are having to cover my shifts. I made these little gifts up for Julie and Cathie, just to say 'Thanks". They are little bottles of Shower Gel and Body Lotion from The Body Shop, with an exfoliating pad. I have based the boxes on the 3 x 3 Notecard Box at SCS and just changed the measurements to suit.

Then for Wendy, my boss, I have made up a little box from Timeless Templates, popped in some (yummy) flavoured Lindt Chocolates (the box holds 10 nicely) and a Breast Cancer Ribbon Bead for her Pandora Bracelet.

I was so happy with how the little gifts turned out, and the recipients loved them! Job Done!! Now to make sure I get on top of the headaches!! (We are putting a plan in action for that so we will see how it goes!!)

Most product Stampin Up!

2009 Teacher Gifts

Well as we all know, I haven't had a very creative year this year!! I have been struggling by to get made what NEEDS to be made!! Normally I would go a bit more lavish with the old Teacher Gifts but this year I just went with the treat boxes! Which they loved anyway!! Mini ones for the Teachers and a large one for the Staff Room (I bet the chockies only lasted till morning tea!! lol).

But for Mr Fuller I wanted to make something special, he has been a fantastic teacher and influence to Jayden and Owen, the last 3 years he has had at least one of my boys in his class and last year had both!! So as this was his last year with a Cassidy in his class I made him a special gift, which as Owen took it out of the box to give to him, he tipped it and everything fell out!! lol! but we put it all together again, and he loved it! I came across this project on someones blog, (I have no idea where) but thought it was a good idea. I have actually used coffee containers instead of tins (the Jarrah coffee Blends - they are a cardboard container). I know that Owen would be a culprit for always forgetting or 'not having' a pencil, or losing his ruler etc, so I thought I would give Mr Fuller a supply of 'Spares'. So that's my Teacher Gifts for 2009.

Here is a pic of all the gifts together!

Christmas Gift Cards

Hi All!! I know I haven't posted for a while, apologies! I'm here now though!

I have just finished up making Gift Card Holders for the gift-cards I am sending to my nieces and nephews for Christmas! I like to kinda match the holder to the card, and this year these cute green ones caught my attention, and so the holder was inspired by them! Thank goodness I have just recently purchased the Snow Swirled stamp set!! I have made them 'matchbook style' where the card actually tucks in to the little flap at the bottom. They are a bit 'stiff' because of the layering on the front, but I will tweak it a little and make it better for next time!!

Here is a close up of the front

Materials Used - All Stampin Up! - Cardstock - Garden Green, Brushed Gold, Confetti White. Stamp Sets - Punches Three & Snow Swirled. Ink - Garden Green. Accessories - Designer Label Punch, Gold EP.
