Last week I shared with you my School house box- and if you remember I told you I was thinking up some fun goodies I could put inside... well I'm back here today to share with you what I came up with.
Using the Fruit Medley stamp set from the Rubber Cafe - I started off by making some cute lunch box notes! I found these sweet little brown bags, which was the perfect size for a 2 1/2 x 3 inch note card. I made 3 by topping each with different fruits and stamped the phrase, 'Knock, Knock... " on the outside of each bag. I thought it would be fun to include a Knock, knock joke as well as simple words of encouragement - like "I love you!", "Have a great day!", and "You are so Special!".
My bookmark was a fun addition- when I was creating the pinwheel using our On the Fence die I cut the rounded edge off and than cut it half to join. I than scored using my Score Pal, and adhered down to my home-made gloobers using our Scrap Happy Glue once my pinwheel was finished I decided it would be the perfect finish for my bookmark. The bookmark itself was made by cutting the top on the fold cutting the corners at an angle and a dove-tail at the bottom. On the inside I have thin magnets that will keep it attached to the page.
Lastly I took a fun notepad that was kraft in color and seemed to fit in perfectly with my other projects. This I decorated a band at the bottom - using G45 ABC Primer paper and a black doily. I accented it with another one of my rolled roses made from corrugated paper and once again our On the Fence die. I created a tutorial for these flowers during the blog hop here on my own blog. If you missed it check it out now!
That's everything! Hope you enjoy this and found some inspiration - have a good weekend.
