First Day Back At School Gift …..

As you know I like to make a little “fairing” gift for some of my friends at work to “bring in” the new school year ….
First Day of A New School year gift…. and this is what I have come up with for this year …. small jars of assorted chocolate buttons, Milky Bar, Cadbury and Thornton's smiley face ones Thorntons jars of SmilesThe plastic jars came from a poundshop, but I can’t for the life of me think which one, but I would really like some more now that I have tried using them, and have other ideas …. and at just 12 for £1 they are a real bargain.
Fabric jar covers - first day of school presentI cut the mop tops from some cotton patchwork material I have had for ages with pinking shears….
First Day of School Gift…. and then punched out and handwrote the tags ….. not much crafting I know …. just very quick and simple, less is more!
