It will soon be the end of term & time to produce that all important gift for teacher. What better than a hand crafted gift? I've taken a plain terracotta plant pot from a garden centre and painted it with a mix of acrylic paints. I have mixed water with the paint to give a more beachy, distressed look. I have stamped the little hearts using some of the many cute little icons from the "Hugs for All" set -one of my favourite sets which is so versatile for many occasions. The sentiment comes from this set too.Punch some hearts using the 2" heart punch from Woodware and stamp the sentiment onto them using the Stazon inkpad. I have then just decorated the edges of the hearts with faux stitching using a coloured pencil before using a heat tool to shrink the plastic. Decorate the rim of the pot with the hearts, paper flowers (which I have lightly sponged with the beige inkpad)ric rac braid and buttons. I have also used the buttons and an assortment of ribbons to decorate the main area of the pot. As you will see I have designed a complimentary card to accompany the gift.
