After Eight Teacher


How is already that time of year? Schools are getting ready to break up for the six weeks of summer (for those year groups that have been able to return following Covid-19 closures). For my eldest son, this is his last year in Primary School and he moves onto the scary world that is High School from September. Even though he will have only been back mere weeks, he wanted to get his teachers something to say ‘thank you’ and ‘goodbye’.

Inside these boxes are 10 After Eight chocolates, just the right amount to say thank you to each teacher without overloading them to the point they need a gym membership to work off the extra pounds gained from end of year gifts.

My son chose the Whale of a Time paper stack and a fish pattern in Shaded Spruce – which works well as the After Eight’s choc box is also a dark green. At first we tried stamping and colouring in the apple from Harvest Hellos with Stampin’ Blends, but something just didn’t quite sit right. A quick look on Instagram showed lots of stampers embossing their apples on coloured card stock, which has worked brilliantly on these boxes.

Finished off with a little note inside & a bow of ribbon on the front, these are gorgeous little teacher gifts without breaking the bank. My son can’t wait to give these to his teachers on the last day of school!

Where is this year going?

Best Wishes,
