Hi Creators

Tracey here with another classroom creation... Every year I struggle with what to buy teachers for Christmas but find that this little box of goodies is a favourite of mine as it is somewhat useful.... I think!

I purchased this craft organizer from my LSS and filled it full of stationery items like paperclips, erasers, push pins etc and in the empty spots CHOCOLATE!
I then used some school pattern paper that I had in my stash to decorate the top of the container. Adhering it to the container with Couture Creations 18mm Double Sided Tape ( I love this wide tape for projects like this, it assures a really strong bond)
Using my Couture Creations Nesting dies I cut some random shapes from matching Pattern Papers... Victorian rectangle, circle and after printing a quote (I am a teacher what's your super power?) a scallop rectangle.

 Ink edges if desired and place wherever you think they look good on.

To personalise my box of useful bits and bobs I have taken some chipboard letters and painted them black then let them dry... Then I have coated them with Couture Creations Glitzin Glamour Black and then mixed in a little of the Glitzin Glamour Crystalina for a bit of extra sparkle without over doing it, then let it dry,,**HINT: mixing your Glitzin Glamour colours together will give you different shades and some very pretty effects..
Once your Glitzin Glamour is completely dry coat with dimensional magic and let dry... For extra depth of field and ultra shine complete a second coat of Dimensional magic.
Once finished it will be a gift fit for any Super Teacher!
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year.
and don't forget to Keep on Creating!

Hi Creators

Every year my 2 beautiful daughters like to give things out to their classmates. Last year was Rudolph chocolates and reindeer food.. this year they decided they wanted to give out reindeer noses....

I purchased some clear plastic bags, malteasers and jaffas' from my local supermarket. Adding 8 malteasers for each reindeer and 1 red for Rudolph to each bag. Cutting cardstock to match the width of my bags and the length required to go from the bottom of the bag and fold over for a front tab.
I then printed all the reindeers names on the back and the name of the contents on the front.

Then with the Couture Creations Scalloped Rectangle nesting dies I feed the cardstock through the die so only one end would cut and scalloped the front edge. I then stapled it to the bag of noses and set about making a cute Rudolph to decorate the front.

From the Couture Creations Oval Nesting Dies I cut 1 of the 2nd smallest ovals from light brown cardstock. Cut 1 Couture Creations Magical Christmas Tis the Season Die in a darker brown.
ink around the oval with a brown ink for definition.

Cut the snowflake so that 3 leaf shape and 2 stems shapes are left as above  ( you will get 2 from each snowflake)

add the half snowflack to your oval so that the leaf shapes become his ears and the stems become his antlers, folding the middle leaf shape over to form a tuft of mane. Add some small circles for eyes and a nose and viola.... RUDOLPH!! Attach this cute red nose reindeer to the front of your noses...repeat for all classmates and send to school!
Keep on Creating!
