The Making of Classmate Gifts


This is the first year that I didn’t go all out like normal and make gifts for the boys’ classmates throughout the year.  So I thought I would end the year with some bookmarks. Since all the talk is summer reading, I thought this would be a practical gift.


So I used my butterfly punch and punched out a bunch of butterflies and I used my Silhouette to design the bookmarks and cut them out. So I really only had to attach my butterfly and add twine to the top.  Of course 55 bookmarks later, I can tell you I am glad it is complete. Anytime I batch process a project, I start out all happy and towards the end I am near screaming for it to end!!

classgift3I made this batch for Nicholas’ classmates and teacher.

classgift2I made this batch for Apollo’s classmates and teachers.

Apollo couldn’t wait so he picked his before I sent them in to school today!

Have a blessed day!

I bought these wooden hearts a while back with the intention of decorating them for my craft room.

I used the beautiful True Love paper from Basic Grey and some foam letters and flowers.  Love the final look.

On my desk before I decided where to put them.

I had some satin butterflies I bought months ago and finally got to use one. So cute.

I love this butterfly.
