This was a paint bucket I spent *a little* time on for my sons 2nd grade teacher last year. The pic. really doesn't do it much justice. I made a post-it not holder, candy bar wrapper, nuggets in cello w/topper, sour cream container with kisses, explosion box, 2-4-6 box with nuggets, all nuggets were wrapped with avery labels to coordinate, candle, mini comp book, pen, shaker ornament...I think that may be all. The handle has ribbon throughout. And there is a little sweater made with polyshrink tied onto the mini comp book as a bookmarker. I had so much fun making this.

Difficulty (1-Easy 5-Advanced): I would say advanced *5*, although, it was not difficult just very time consuming as I am very picky when making a gift for someone. :-)

Oh, wow! That's a lot of work!! But it sure paid off, this is FABULOUS!! I love making things like this for teachers, ok...I love the IDEA of making things like this (I've only made card sets for mine). BUT, maybe I'll do something like this THIS year! :) TFS

What a fantastic spread of gifts! The teacher must have been thrilled. My 3 kids' teachers will be lucky to get one handcrafted gift! I would love to know the instructions for the explosion card.
