As some of you know, this week has been the last week of Kindy for my (little) big boy. I have been surprised at how emotional I have felt about this milestone coupled with him turning 5 last Monday, but we really are so excited with him as well, so the tears don’t last long 😉
Of course, with him leaving Kindy that’s a perfect excuse for Mummy to do some stamping! I made some little gifts for the teachers and early childhood workers at his Kindy, they have done a fabulous job with him and I know that they really care about the children they teach, so they deserved a little treat. I had ordered the Mini Milk carton die with the intent of making ‘something’ with that and while waiting for it to arrive I received some swaps from the INKlings Team Training day. Amongst the swaps was a gorgeous bird house made with this very die by Fiona Brown, so I knew that’s what I would make ….. with a couple of changes …… mine became ‘Rabbit hutches’ for 2 of the little Lindt gold bunnies (you can buy them in packs of 5 from Big W) and here they are ……
I also made a card to go with them in the same colour scheme and then to make it easy to carry them in while pushing a stroller and hurrying my little man along I made a tray too …..
There is some Champagne Mist shimmer paint on the butterfly to make it shimmer and I lightly dabbed the dauber over the lower portion of the card to add a very light shimmer to the stamped area too – and the same on the matching envelope of course! LOL! Just a pity I couldn’t get that to photograph well – sorry Miss Kylie, photos at night again! 😛
I hope you like them, the girls at the kindy sure did! If you want to make your own bird house or rabbit hutch just google ‘mini milk carton bird house’ and you will find lots of online tutorials and youtube videos. If you’d like more details on the supplies that I used, please let me know and I can fill you in!
Happy end of Term 1 everyone! K 🙂
PS this was the ‘treat’ Aidan took to share with his class mates! 50-odd Gingerbread men with 3 buttons (HAD to be 3! LOL!) and he handed them out at the end of today’s Kindy session while his proud mummy watched 🙂
