Every two years at Noah's school, St Phillips Christian College, the junior school students put on a theatrical event. This year four very talented teachers - including Noah's teacher Mr Scott, wrote not only the script but all the music to go with the production.
There were a few full on weeks of rehearsals, costume making and I can imagine a number of very long days and some nights for the teachers. After all coordinating 292 students from Kindy to Year 4 is no small feat - believe me I've tried!!
In the week of performances - there were two matinees and three night performances - by the Thursday the teachers were beginning to look a weary not to mention just plain exhausted so Noah and I decided what better way to help them get through the last few days than with a coffee and chocolate hit.
So with some of the clear card bags, the labels framelits die, and the morning cup stamp set we created these.
They are super easy to out together, just cut out the top part using the framelit and the Big Shot machine and fold it in half. Pop your treats in the bag and stample the paper part on. Using the morning up stamp set I stamped the sentiment and cut onto some Whisper White cardstock before using the label punch. The cup I just cut out freehand and Noah asked to colour in the hearts. These bits were just stuck on with the snail adhesive.
The following day each of the teachers told me that they enjoyed their little bag of goodies and that they hadn't lasted long!
I was lucky enough to go and see the performance on the Thursday evening and was BLOWN away by the production. The set looked like it was a part of a major theatre companies collection, the costumes were fantastic and WOW the children were out of this world.
I so can not wait until the next performance!
