Not because I have all the time in the world to make these gifts.
Not because I can't go out to get something from Tesco or Giant or the Gift Mall shop not to far from home. *well malas jugak nak keluar-keluar, actually*
Not that I am against store-bought items.
It's because Izzo requested for handmade pencil holders *again* to give to some of his teachers this year, on Teacher's Day.
Nasib baik memang Zuleyka masih makan Nestle Rice & Soya...jadi banyak lah tin kat rumah ni, especially when I haven't sent them to the recycling bins yet. Dan nasib baik jugaklah The Mama ni ada home-based business yang memang memerlukan dia menyimpan riben, embellishments and other necessary decor items.
Jadi, dapatlah buat pencil holders made with love. Hehe.
The tins were already wrapped with fabric / denim & spray painted from before...entah bila I lupa, so that quickened the process as I just had to find suitable ribbons and embellishments to decorate them. The good thing is, The Mama yang malas nak drive keluar ni tak payah nak pening-pening cari barang sebab semuanya ada kat rumah, alhamdulillah.
Bila anak mintak, mak pun cuba sedaya-upaya la nak buat, kan.
The crumply paper bearing the teachers' names was something I picked up from my MRSM days, when I was 14, to be exact. Buat masa ni, biarlah rahsia dulu cerita tu. Hehe.
Happy Teacher's Day!!!!
