#1 Teacher Paper Pad

Today is Anything But a Card at Catch the Bug challenge blog. Cammy and I have come up with some great projects for you.


I found this paper pad box at JoAnn's and decided to alter it.  Using the new mini stamp set from BugABoo called Brat School Apples, I sized and combined the little girl and the saying to fit my Spellbinders Label 4 die.  Copics used:
Girl - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E11, E15
Dress and shoes - RV34
Apples - R17, Y17, E44, G21

I airbrushed E30 around the image before removing it from the die.
The box came with the floral pattern paper, but I added the red trim and the pearls.  To make the middle flower of the three, I scanned the box and printed the image onto card stock.   Wouldn't this make a cute back to school gift?

Sandy--I wish I would have taught your children! I would have loved receiving a gift like this from one of my students. This is adorable.
