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!
