MPS Pinkalicious Blog Hop- Back to School

Hello everyone!  I am so proud of myself for posting 2 days in a row!!! :)  Before I get to my project for today, I want to say a huge "thank you" to Diana @ http://dianamlarson.blogspot.com/ for passing the Butterfly Blog Award to me!!!!  Her blog is amazing, she is a wonderful bloggy friend, and I really do appreciate her thinking of me!  Check out her blog, you'll be happy that you did!  Thanks again Diana!!! :)  Okay...  I wanted to make sure that I was able to get in on the MPS Pinkalicious Blog Hop this month, but it took me a while to come up with an idea...  The challenge was to create something with a school theme, BUT it couldn't be a card or scrapbook page...  You all know that I LOVE making cards, so this was a chance to think outside the box... and that's exactly what I made:  a box!  This is a treat box you can fill with goodies and pass it out to other teachers (co-workers), your child's teacher, etc...  I love the little miniature clipboard on this and that cut is actually the reason I bought the Fabulous Finds cartridge!  :)  Here it is....

MPS Pinkalicious Blog Hop- school theme
Bitten by the Bug 2- TBBM 3D box
Blog Quick Quotes (CWC)- Back to School



Tags, Bags, Boxes & More- box cut at 5.12"
Fabulous Finds- clipboard cut at 5"
Doodlecharms- apple cut at 1.28"
Hero Arts- Friends stamp set
Grid paper 4 1/2 x 2 3/4", I punched holes down the side with my Crop-a-Dile
Twine
Glossy Accents

There you have it folks!  I kept it pretty simple, so it would be easy to make multiples of...  Hope you have an A+ day!!!  :)

This is a very cool project. You hit it out of the park in "thinking out of the box". The use of chipboard was fantastic! I love this project!

Karen Aicken said...
