Just a Little Bit of Craftyness...

Our school holidays are nearly over and I can honestly say that I think am sure I have done everything I wanted to do over the holidays. I tend to leave everything until the holidays, doctors appointment, hair cut, car service, dentist etc etc..... I think everything on my list is done! (Except perhaps the ironing and my planning for Term 4 - that's tomorrows job!)

I even got to spend the day with some lovely ladies from school being crafty yesterday! We spent 5 hours making gifts, boxes and cards, it was just fabulous (great therapy)! Because I am not already busy enough (it seems to be how it is, the busier you are, the more you take on...), I am also a Stampin Up consultant - just for fun really! This is what we made!
Aren't they adorable! Stampin Up has these fabulous thin cellophane bags (pack of 50 for only $4.50 AUD) that fit M&M's perfectly! Then we just made a little card to stick or tie to the top! Adorable! We have just ordered a whole heap, so look out anyone who might get a Christmas gift from us, I think you know what you will be getting!

And just because we are teachers, look what else we discovered - pencils fit perfectly! I am thinking of all the possibilities for next school year already - birthday pencils, welcome to school pencils, pen license? Any other suggestions?

    1. Thanks Liz! I'm glad you like them so much!
      The advantage of these is we can make them ahead of time so we aren't rushed in the last few days!

    1. Thanks Tina,
      It is sometimes hard to find something for each kiddo, but I think these are going to work great!
