Teachers gift – Christmas 2014


Today I’ll share the little gifts I made for my daughter’s teachers. If you have seen my last post, you’ll recognize the design! I loved the card so much, I had to make a variation with different colours.

I made a star-shaped box and a matching card for both teachers. I figured out how to make the star box myself, learning from my (many!) mistakes, but you can follow this very convenient tutorial from my friend Tracy. A little time consuming, but simple and effective 🙂

I made the first one in Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate :

Shimmer and Shine - Teachers gift Christmas 2014 - #StampinUp #Star #Framelit Dies - Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate


and the second one in Pool Party and Smoky Slate :

Shimmer and Shine - Teachers gift Christmas 2014 - #StampinUp #Star #Framelit Dies - Pool Party and Smoky Slate


The sentiment is not from Stampin’Up! : I don’t have any French greetings for Christmas… yet 😉

Of course, I filled the boxes with chocolates 🙂 and Daphnée “wrote” a little message for her teachers inside the card.

Supplies (Stampin’Up!):

  • Stamp set: Many Merry Stars
  • Inks: Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Smoky Slate
  • Dies: Stars Framelit Dies
  • Papers: Whisper White cardstock, Smoky Slate cardstock
  • The Rhinestones were coloured with alcohol markers. You can use the wonderful Blendabilities to match whichever colour you want : how cool is that?
