New Year Fairing Gift

As you know I like to start and end each school term with a small fairing gift that I pop into colleagues pigeon holes ready for the first/last day.
New Year Favor 2
Well, I decided to go very small this term, as no doubt half the people I will give one to will have started a new diet ….. so one teeny, weeny Ferrero Rocher won’t hurt will it?
New Year Favor
And, as I feel all crafted out after Christmas, I have used some pre-made, cut and scored wedding favour boxes (from Hobbycraft) that  I’ve had for years, all I’ve had to do is to make them up.  A bit of faux stitching, handwriting and a tiny gift bow on the top and that’s it,  done and dusted!

Swoon! I wish I worked in your school or you worked in mine! I will need a Ferrero Rocher tomorrow on my first day back. I did a snazzy little kitkat wrapped up once for all our staff.
Love your lettering by the way?
