End of Year Gifts!

Hello,

Welcome to my newest followers. I'm so pleased to have you on board. Thanks so much for all the lovely comments too. They are greatly appreciated.
DON'T FORGET I AM HAVING A GIVEAWAY ONCE MY FOLLOWER LIST REACHES 100 SO MAKE SURE YOU POP BACK. 


I would like to share with you our end of year gifts
Our year 2 school teacher Mrs C and the daycare workers that look after our youngest child have been absolutely fabulous this year!! So A HUGE thank-you  for your care and compassion in our children's development. Words can not express how thankful we are for people like you.
I hope this very small gesture shows how much we appreciate you all.






















Now for the year 2 school class mates.....


Stamping Santa 30 times in black archival ink

















Colouring in with red and black copic markers. Then I added glitter glue  to the front of Santa's hat, the pom pom and the white edges of his jacket. Black was used to colour his belt. Cutting out Santa was a little time consuming but worth the effort.
















The all important base of the matchbox which I have added a brad to create the handle
















Here I have added a thin piece of acetate with sticky dots to the back of Santa. Hes bends backwards nicely into the box. The lid goes over the top.
















When you remove the lid Santa pops up and there is a treat revealed. Who doesn't love a chocolate gold coin.
























To the covers I have added Aleene's Glitter Snow and some greeting stickers.

















These were made using the Tim Holtz Matchbox Die.









































Thanks for stopping by today.
