Dance Teacher Gifts

It is always so tricky trying to think of little gifts for teachers. And to make it even trickier, my girls had the same dance teacher, so I couldn't even give the same gift! Anyway, Miss Lou is just lovely, and I knew she would definitely appreciate something hand made, so the girls and I made some red & green "Christmas" truffles, and then I made this cute box to pop them into. (I found the tutorial on SCS for the box.) And then I made a matching card. (Tricky to see sentiment on the card, it just says Merry Christmas). I got the idea for the card from a swap we done months ago at a team meeting by Philippa.
So that is present from child number one! I cant find the photo I took for present from child number two! How frustrating! If I get time I will take another and pop it up after dinner! Grrrr!

PS. since I have been soooo slack with my blogging I took a bunch of photos when I created the mini bow and I will publish a quick tutorial in the next couple of days sp you can jazz up your gifts this holiday season!

Fabulous job Leonie - the box and that card are amazing - and with some chockies in it would be perfection!!!!

These are gorgeous. I love the little SU stamp around the oval on the card. Great idea.

I'm sure the dance teacher will love these, they are gorgeous!

I've got the ingredients to make the red and green truffles for presents too!

Yes these are very cute. I so need to make one of these bow's. So that would be great if you could publish it.
