You will know that I am a bit of a budding Kirstie Allsopp. I delight in the fact that I recently purchased glue gun and love the challenge of a random character cake to create for a birthday and occasions such as the end of term are a great excuse to come up with an unusual but nice (and easy to make!) gift for someone.
If you have read my blog, you will also know that I LOVE Pinterest – an epic online collection point for, well, pretty much everything, but especially lovely craft ideas = heaven! You can see my pinterest board here…
SO, trying to keep my budget low and the craft level pretty low too (I said I was a budding kirstie Allsopp nowhere near as good as her!) and having wasted a good few hours internet browsing, dreaming of many rather Americanized ideas for Beas gorgeous teachers, I decided to keep it simple, and useful. I am sure every teacher loves some lovely smellies or something yummy to eat but maybe something different every now and then is nice too?
I happened to be visiting the Lavender Farm last week and picked up some lovely and unusual types of lavender plant (for a little more than £2 each, not bad) So having also picked up some pots at the garden centre today, I made these:
Do you like? I am quite chuffed with them actually. I already had the chalk board paint (B&Q) and hopefully the teachers will be able to re-pot the plants and re use their little pots for another plant next year…..
Pinterest has a whole raft of ‘printables’ – lots of lovely pre-designed signed / gift labels etc that you can personalise – i think it really gives a lovely finish to this little pressie.
They all keep little note books in their aprons to write snippets down about the children for their learning journey books so I also picked up these little books and popped a pic of Bea on the front – hopefully useful and a bit of fun too.
All popped into a little gift bag and fingers crossed a little bit of the love we feel for them showed in the gift we had made!
What did you make yours?
