Lydia's lap-desk

This was a quick birthday gift for a party Macknezie went to this past weekend. We filled a lap-desk with art supplies and personalized it. The name was done using Storybook Font and the butterfly is from Hello Kitty Greetings.

5 X 5 boxes

We wanted to send in a special Valentine's treat for the teachers this year so we came up with the idea of homemade fudge in a heart shape. I found some large heart cookie cutters and we used them as a mold for the fudge. They were about 5" wide and 1" thick and looked great - unfortunately I didn't think to take a picture until after I boxed them up. I found this tutorial by Beate on Splitcoaststampers. I love the look and simplicity of these boxes so of course I tsl'd them! I made adjustments to the measurements so the fudge would sit snug. The box bottom was cut at 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" and scored at 1 1/4" on all 4 sides. The lid was cut at 7" x 7" and scored at 15/16ths on all 4 sides. The lid was punched using the fiskar's scallop punch. The papers are from K and Company's super cute stack.

Hello Kitty Valentines

Hello Kitty valentines using the card feature on my new Hello Kitty cart! All 24 of these were cut at 3 1/2". I tsl'd LeslieWebster's idea of adding the bows and flowers. Also instead of piecing in the tiny nose I used Stickles. I think they turned out too stinkin' cute. I don't think I'll ever outgrow Hello Kitty!

Knock-off Top Note Bags

This is my version of the top-note bag I keep seeing everywhere. Using CDS I took a shape from the Storybook cart that looks similar to the top-note die and welded an oval to make the handles. All the paper is from a K and Company stack. DD used these cute bags to hold her valentines and treats for her classmates.

Pencil Buckets

100 days of school = 100 pencils for each class. I kept it really simple this time. I used the Mickey font in CDS and welded the letters together. Tin bucket was 97 cents at Walmart. Paper was DCWV.
