I needed a couple 'Thank You' gifts for my son's teachers, so I made some cards. I appreciate all the work teachers do. This year I have watched as my 1st grader's reading skills have really improved!! He is getting so big - sigh!
Anyway, here is a picture of the set of cards. I made a 'pizza box' to hold the cards. If you would like to have this SVG cutfile CLICK HERE. This box is sized to fit standard A2 envelopes, and it will easily hold 8 bulky cards and envelopes.
The big flower on the front of the card is dry embossed from a Lasting Impression brass stencil. The front flap of the card is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder 'Swiss Dot'. The tag on the box is also from Cuttlebug. The 'Thanks' stamp on the tag is from Stampendous. The ribbon on the box is seam binding - I simply love how it ties bows!
Summer is almost upon us, and my kids are already talking about all the fun they will have -- me not so much. I remember loving summer when I was I kid! Now that I am a Mom, I find myself not really looking forward to the long days ahead. I can't say that I hate summer, but I will miss all my free crafting time!! It won't be too bad as my boys enjoy crafting with me, but it is difficult letting them loose on my supplies. Good thing there are summer camps.
This year my youngest son started preschool, 3 glorious days a week and this is his last week (sigh). I just have to console myself that next year ... Kindergarden (yes -- 5 days a week)! While I am consoling myself with this notion, my Hubby asked 'So are you going back to work next fall?' WHAT, give up my crafting time?
