Bookworm Teacher Gift
Good morning friends! I simply cannot believe my kids only have a few more weeks of school. May just zipped by, and now the end of the school year is here too!
I have been absolutely crazy busy... I know you can all relate. So, my little project today is fast and simple.
I fell in LOVE with the new Imaginisce desiger papers! Have you seen the Teacher's Pet line? I had to have it. When it arrived, I was even MORE excited. All the little images are embossed! They really stand out and shine. You just HAVE to touch it. You know when someone has to touch your project, you've succeeded! So, this made my work a ton easier. Our stamp set called Bookworm works PERFECT with the paper! Did you know that eP carries the entire OCL line? You gotta love one stop shopping!
I was originally going to stamp on the front of the little SU! 3x3 note cards, but after I put the paper on, realized they didn't need anything on the front. I mean, how could I cover up that adorable paper? I fit 12 little cards and envelopes in the bag and I stamped Thanks on the inside of six. This way, she will have some thank you's and some plain cards for any little note she's like to write.
The little bag is those boxes from the Dollar Tree in the wedding section. See... I told you I went easy! I just layered the designer paper with some Bazzill Maraschino cherry, and stuck it on with my all time favorite glue Zip Dry. I have more teachers to make thank you's for, so I'll be using this set a lot this week. Good thing it's the Spotlight of the week set for OCL. You'll be able to see many more quick easy, FUN samples of things you can make all week long by checking out the design team blogs.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great week! Please check out the previous post to see the OCL design team blog hop! AMAZING projects posted today. :)
