Teacher gift set

Good afternoon friends, followers and casual visitors,  I hope you are all well. I have been watching The Frugal Crafter on youtube again and she showed a great little idea for Teacher Gifts or they can be for anyone really.

I made a bookmark from white card measuring 20cm x 5 cm ( 8" × 2") and attached 2 strips of patterned paper down either side. I then added the word  'BOOKMARK' with letter peel along the centre. I added an eyelet at the top and threaded some fibres through.
The wallet is actually a bookmark wallet which I purchased from my local craft shop and attached matching patterned paper cut to size to fasten the opening. I also die cut a label on which I stamped 'Thank You' and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.
The mechanical pencils cost £1 in Tesco complete with leads and the Sharpie cost £2 for 2 but there is only room for one.
My 13 year old grandson saw this and asked for one for his form tutor, so it must be ok lol.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have been inspired by my little project, which of course would make in ideal gift for anyone,  you could always swap the pencils for sweets if giving to younger children.
Bye for now.
Hugs Lainie xx
