I was asked to donate a raffle item to a local pre-school fundraiser. I decided to create a gift box with various stationery items that could be used for all occasions. Here is what I came up with… I think this would be a wonderful gift that you could make for someone around the Holidays, or even for a teacher, co-worker, neighbor, etc.
These post-it holders were ones that I had made a while back when I was doing craft cairs, so I used them as the inspiration to create the rest of the items in the box. I just matched and coordinated the theme/colors to the colors used on the post-it holders.
Next up were these gift tags. I used the Hero Arts Butterflies stamps, along with the coordinating frame cuts dies for these. I popped up the butterflies to give added dimension, and added sentiments for all occasions to the tags.
I also stamped a set of 4 matching greeting cards to go along with the other items in the set, using the same Hero Arts stamp set and dies.
The greeting on these cards was from a Paper Smooches Bold Buzzwords stamp set. I am also loving the added interest the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies give to my cards.
Lastly, I decorated a plain box to coordinate with the entire set. I think this really ties it all together and makes for a unique raffle item!
Continuing on with the Teacher greeting cards that I recently created, I decided to make some gift tags. These are such a unique way to add a personal touch to any gift that you’re giving a Teacher this year!
These are hand stamped and colored with Copics. I then used my Wink of Stella pen to add a little shimmer to each ruler. I cut the tags with my Silhouette, and adhered a blank white piece on the back so there’s room for a personal message.
I love the greeting on this next set. I think it’s a great message to give to a Teacher to show how much you appreciate them. These were made with the Lawn Fawn “A Good Apple” stamp set.
Lastly, here are some that are less “teacher” themed – but more general. These would be great to say Thank you to a Teacher, or anyone!
I will also have these listed in my Etsy shop for purchase.
Today I am sharing this boy themed birthday (or other occasion!) card. Boy cards are sometimes tricky to come by, so I truly enjoyed creating this one. The card involved a bit of copic coloring so it was more work then most of the cards I make, but I think that’s what makes it special! I used this stamp set from Paper Smooches to create this card. The greeting was just something I created and printed from my computer.
You can find this card and others for sale in my Etsy shop. Thanks for looking!
