Wednesday Worktable 20th July - Saying "Thank You"

I am pleased with the results of my work over the last two days, so here are the Books I made, for J. to give to some of his teachers, as "Thank You" gifts:
The Teachers' Thank-You Gifts

For the French teacher - a pair of pocket notebooks / mini-journals, covered with bright paper and decorated with contrast ribbon ties.
For the Maths teacher - A rather funky notebook, filled with a rainbow of coloured sheets.  Decorated with turquoise stitching and a bright yellow and pink tassel.
The Science teacher's a trendy chap, so we chose some "cool" paper to make the covers for this pair of pocket notebooks!
The English teacher's gift is a notebook/sketchbook, covered with Indian paper and filled with hand-made cotton paper.  It is decorated with a silk edging, contrast stitching and a hand-made silk tassel.
For the Form Tutor, a cheerful sunflower-design fabric cover, with bright orange paper lining.  Filled with smooth white note paper.  The book has contrast stitching, a black silk edging and matching hand-made silk tassel. 

Finally, a book for J's guitar teacher.  It has a cover of chocolate brown art paper, with decorative scrapbook paper laid on top, then a cotton bookcloth edging, contrast linen stitching and a hand-made cotton and linen tassel. Inside, the pages alternate between plain notepaper and sheets of music paper.

We wrapped these in colourful tissue papers, tied them with ribbon and added the matching gift tags, which J. carefully wrote out for each teacher.  We really hope they like them - makes a change to soap, flowers or chocolates anyway!

  7. Man, I wish I was one of those teachers.

    One of mine did make me caramel shortbread though.

  8. These are just beautiful! I hope all these teachers are very apreciative. Have you thought of offering to run a class after school or in the local area (where people pay to come and learn and play)?

  9. What beautiful gifts and so thoughtfully matched to each teacher. I especially like the music and funky maths designs.

  10. What beautiful gifts - such lucky teachers! It's been fun to see what everyone has been up to. You certainly deserve a slouch day.
