End of Term Gifts

I haven't had as much time as I was hoping to make everyone at work a thank you gift so I have only done a couple of bits. I have made another of my thank you plaques that I made the other week which you can see here. This one is identical except for the colours - my lovely friend Michele loves purple so her's had to be in purple really or I would get told off! LOL

And then I made a milk carton gift box for my partner teacher's gift, which was some jewellery from Next. I love these fresh Spring colours. 

These are for
Creative Craft Cottage's Challenge #43 Layer It Up (My plaque has lots of layers on it!)
