Thank You Teacher Gift Boxes

I have completed my gifts for Owen & Jasmine's teachers but they don't appear to have photographed very well!  Must be the combination of vibrant colours against the black and kraft, they are much prettier in real life...but you only have my word for that ;) lol

Thank you card...


Contents of each gift box...


All wrapped up..

Must dash, it's Jasmine's school summer concert this afternoon, she's not actually taking part (her violin playing is dire lol) but despite this, she insists Dean and I do not miss it! xx
