So I decided to recycle a box I had around the house. I re-covered it with some fun, brightly colored papers and added a ribbon from my stash. I stamped out a vase of flowers from the French 50's Cafe set from Sheena Douglass' - A Little Bit Scenic collection. I figure what is more perfect to give to your teacher than some flowers - right?
I colored the image with my awesome, ridiculously reasonably priced Spectrum Noir markers. And then I cut a piece of coordinating card stock and the image out with some dies. I layered them and then attached them to the lid of the box and then topped it off with a yellow flower.
I filled the box with some chocolates and then to take it over the top a bit, I made a gift card holder out of a mini paper bag. I used some matching patterned papers and ribbon to decorate it. I stamped out "thank you" in the corner. I found a fun "chalkboard" tag in my stash and layered a fussy cut apple and button onto it and adhered it to the bag. I pulled out one of the cute little clothes pins I have in my stash and went over one side of it with some Versamark ink, then I added some Stampendous Red Dragon embossing powder and heat set it.
All there was left to do was to pop a little gift card into the bag and I used my little clothes pin to make sure the card doesn't fall out. I just clipped the card to the side of the bag. Isn't it cute!! I just love how it turned out. I can see me making a ton of these little cuties.
I hope you can find time in your busy schedule to join in on this month's Sunshine/Yellow challenge on the Crafter's Companion Challenge blog. You could be the lucky winner of a $30 gift card to our online store!!
Until next time...happy scrapping!!!
