After posting a few pictures of my latest papercrafting creations on Facebook, I decided it was time to take my love of papercrafting to the next level. I wanted a quick and easy way for my friends and family to view my paper projects. My sister calls me her 'muse'. Apparently I must inspire creativity whenever I'm around her. So Sher - here's your daily dose of creativity. I hope it inspires you to make something fun and wonderful!
I hope you all like the name.... I hate coming up with names for stuff. But I thought that it would be a unique tie between my namesake and my love of paper.
These are the Teacher's Gifts I made for Jakob and Caleb this year. Originally, I was only going to make the beaded lanyards. But then I needed a pretty little box. Step in Lauren Meader's Timeless Templates from the Papertrey Ink website. Well, once I had these little lunch-pails in mind, I HAD to fill them. I mean who wants a nearly empty box? So I picked up these notepads with pens from the $1 bin at Michael's, and covered the front. After I made the box I realized the cute doggy stamp was too big to fit on the front of the lunchbox. The notepad was a perfect and natural solution. While at the dollar bins, I noticed some post-it notes. Wouldn't those be handy for a teacher? So I threw those in (with a coordinating cover I made from Real Red cardstock). What gift would be complete without chocolate? There's a little bag of M&M's included. I had so much fun making these!
