I'm back again with the little gift Phoebe gave to her teacher yesterday.
It was really fun to make and is made with a cut file from My Time Made Easy.
Using the Cameo I cut the box from a sheet of 12x12" yellow card and before assembling it I added a 2" strip of Cosmo Cricket 'Material Girl' paper along the bottom. Next I added a strip of 'apple' patterned ribbon.
Following the instructions sent with the file I taped the box together and curled the petals at the top with a bone folder.
It's best to use a really strong double sided tape for the box ~ I use this one.
I filled the box with sweets and tied the top closed with 3 lengths of Divine twine.
I cut two apples with the Cameo and layered the little pieces together adding some detail with Stampin' Up markers. Then I glued them to the back and front of the pencil top.
I added text to the little banner using print and cut with the Cameo and wrapped it around the pencil. This is the text on the back.
I used matching paper for the card, and the Wryn image and sentiment are from Tiddly Inks.
I coloured the image with Copics and then fussy cut around it.
Next I cut a white rectangle from white card, sponged distress inks (Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick) around the edges and layered the Wryn image on top with foam pads.
I added glamour dust to the icing on the cupcake and glossy accents to the cherry on her head.
(although you can't see it in the photo very well!)
I also cut the sentiment with an oval nestabilities die and sponged it with the same distress inks while still in the die.
Before layering the card together, I tied seam binding around the measuring tape paper and popped a red button on the bow.
The card is 6"x6" and the box is just slightly taller.
It's just a simple gift but I wanted to let Mrs Lockhart know that Phoebe really enjoyed school this year ~ and that means a lot to me!
She has taught primary 3 for quite a few years and then had to change to teach primary 1 this year so it can't have been easy!
Thanks for coming to visit again today!
I better try and get something done before I've to start the school runs ~ the day goes so quick doesn't it?
Hope you're having a good one :)
