Gifts for End of Year

Tonight I got to do something I don't get to often - 
craft with my daughter
She defiantly has the crafty DNA but is in 
a stage where she doesn't have time or the ambition 
( I hope it passes sooner than later)

We made gift boxes for her fabulous Gymnastics coaches 
& for her close friends as she is Graduating grade 8 and she is going 
to a different school than they are.

we bought them the hip trendy leather strap bracelets 
that have charms and words on them - 
dint think to take a photo of the gift !! lol 
Googled a pic for a sample
Image result for leather strap bracelet tree infinity
she picked a different one and colour for each person- 
we ordered them moths ago !
we saw these in Arizona & LA but they were a bit pricier,
gotta love that online shopping

So tonight we made the packaging 

Here is Taylor attaching trim.

Here is the mess and creation area

Here are the Coaches boxes

 we used the Sizzix Big L Candy Wrapper

Here are the ones for her friends at Grad

hope you all have a chance to be creative with someone you love!
