back to school teacher gift

Hi Everyone! Today I wanted to share some fun treat holders that I made for some Art Teachers my children had over the summer.  I decided to make another one for the new art teacher at our school and decided to film it as well so that you would have the directions. 
This is not my invention, I found it on Pinterest and thought it was just so fun! I love to watercolor, I love treat holders, and I love my art teachers, so this was a perfect project for me.  The original designer's name is Dawn Thomas and here is her original post.  It is such an awesome little box! I reworked the directions a little bit, and used a new die for the ovals as the ones mentioned were no longer current products, but the look is the same.

It is really simple and I made a quick how to video for you to see it step by step.



Start with a piece of basic black cardstock at 5 1/4 by 8 1/2, which means you can get 2 from one sheet of cardstock!! Score as shown below.

I hope you will give this project a try.  I think it would be a nice teacher appreciation day treat as well. Here is the supply list.

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop



Hi everyone!  Today I am participating in a Global Blog hop with my Facebook Friends from the group Scrapbooking Global.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! enthusiasts who decided we needed a place to share our scrapbooking ideas or questions.  If you are interested in joining our group, I hope you do.  We have a challenge on Fridays to get your creativity flowing, and lots of photos in our gallery to give you ideas on how to use your Stampin' Up! products on your pages.   This is our First ever Blog Hop!  I hope you enjoy it and get some Scrapbooking inspiration!

I decided to use the Colorful Seasons bundle on my Blog Hop project because it is just such a great bundle for Scrapbookers!  The Bundle has images and dies for every season, and it is so pretty and versatile.
I love the pretty snowflakes and that there are three sizes.  The fall leaves, cherry blossoms and summer images will get a lot of use on my pages this year as well.












I started out by just cutting a variety of snowflakes.  I used Whisper White and Dapper Denim cardstock, as well as vellum.

I also used my Aqua Painter to make some that are multicolored.  I just painted some Dapper Denim ink onto some Whisper White cardstock, then cut the snowflakes out.  I love the random color I achieved on the snowflakes.

















I used a card from the Memories and More Color Theory Card Pack to add a title.  I used the 2 1/4 inch circle punch to cut just the sentiment out.  I layered some silver ribbon behind.
To add a touch more silver to the page I also added some rhinestones to the centers of some of the snowflakes.

With all those snowflakes and the card pack on my desk, I couldn't help but make a card as well.  I even used the card with the circle cut out as a layering piece behind my "Let it Snow" card!
I hope that you like the project I chose for this Blog Hop!  You can continue to follow along to the other blogs in the hop by clicking the Next button below!  I hope you find some inspiration for your scrapbooking!!  You can also join our Scrapbooking Global community on our Facebook Page.
