teacher's day project 2011


once again, PP reminded me that i could not, not do anything... just like he did here.. and so, by God's grace, and with PP's help, this is what we came up with. I decided on hot chocolate with much hesitation, because i was not sure whether most people would like it. however, fond memories of how the hot chocolate warmed my heart in melbourne made me decide that this was probably the best thing to perk a teacher up, especially in the office :)

let me share here how we did this!

we purchased little canisters from this random shop in Jurong West. It sells baking supplies and other groceries, together with takeaway boxes and paper bags - the kind of things i like! thank God that it came in the right size! there were 2, and the nice auntie found the bigger one for me :) since i was buying quite alot, i got it at a reasonable price of 50 canisters for SGD$12.

After some scouring, i think this is the name of the store :)

not wanting to take any risks, PP and i did some washing...

hot chocolate and tiny marshmallows were purchased from Cold Storage. i must confess i have tasted better-quality hot chocolate, but i guess Cadbury makes a rather good alternative. Another brand worth trying is "Swiss Miss".

seal and tie in a little plastic spoon using brown string - both available at SKP (again, one of my favourite stores), and finish it off with a gorgeous heart. i purchased the Martha Stewart heart lace scalloped punch from Paper Market.

this was a simple project that did not take alot of time :) if you would like the soft copy of the stickers, feel free to ask me for it and i'll gladly email it to u :) i used labels from Mayspies (label number: 09 00 14). The font names are Learning Curve, and Print Clearly. Click on the links and it will lead you to a site to download these gorgeous fonts i have used countless times.

Just around the corner is children's day! ACK! i have not fully decided what to do.. but you can see what i worked on for the past 2 years, here and here :)

thank God that my colleagues liked it and it put a smile on their faces :) :)
