Teachers gifts

Well I know this is a bit late but I thought I would show you what I made the boys teachers for Christmas. I made them some peppermint bark which is so scrummy I had to make some more for me lol. I also made them some chocolate lolly's with cashew nuts and dried cranberries which I saw on Barefoot Contessa - love that programme. I decorated some plain paper bags with a retired Stampin Up stamp using Real Red ink pad. The cards are the same as the ones I made before using scraps of paper. The teachers were so pleased and it worked out so much cheaper. Sorry for the quick post I am supervising hubby whilst he is building some furniture for the Craft room. The room is chaos but the rest of the furniture gets delivered on Friday so I am spending the weekend getting it how I want it. I can't wait to show you all photos of how I have organised it all. Take care Laura xx Laura x
