..are sadly not a matter of course, but our son was so lucky to have two wonderful years with three awesome teachers, who have been putting all their humanity, wisdom, heart and knowledge into their job to make my son a more self confident and happy school kid (after a not too good start with his first two years at a different school and with a different teacher, that had made us face severe problems like school anxiety and great lack of self confidence even though he is a smart boy - which his latest school report gladly shows!).
As a thank-you-gift from the deepest bottom of my heart (being myself a teacher and knowing about school kids' AND teachers' problems), I bought them some gift coupons and made three tags with envelopes on them to put them into.
First I die cut the three envelopes and coloured them with various Distress inks in blues and greens. After I had folded and glued them into shape I stamped some of my lovely hedgerow images onto the tags and envelopes using dark blue archival stamping ink.
The white lace and blue linen ribbon were sewn to the tag and the blossom twigs were fixed to the tag using blue twist. I used the same twist to close the envelopes. Done!
Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
