With Teacher Appreciation being celebrated and the end of the school year around the corner, it's time to think about what to give!
Most of the time I plan a gift card! I feel the teachers really appreciate that, and they can choose what ever they really need or want rather than receiving 20 novelty gifts that they may not have use for year after year! But I like to dress it up! Recently, I had the opportunity to display my projects at a Spring Pop-Up shop event. I worked on several projects for Mother's Day, Spring/Summer and Father's Day, I am hoping to post so more as the days go by. But this is the spa set I put together!
I found the boxes, lavender tealights and 2 types of bath soaks on Amazon. I was able to plan my project, order the supplies and have them here in a day! PERFECT! They are the perfect sizes for this project. And...teachers are their feet all day and dealing with germs! The definitely need some relaxation!!!

To make the wrap of the box, you will need a piece of paper 4 1/2"x10 1/2" and you will score on the 10 1/2" side at 1", 2 1/8", 8 1/8" and 9 1/8". I used a little bit of adhesive to hold the paper in place as I wrapped it around the box. Make sure you add your candles and soaks to the box before wrapping.
The paper I used is called Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series. It's now retired! Are you like me, I buy paper and I have to save it until I find the perfect project to use it on??? I felt this project was just right! I added the leaves from the Leaf Punch in Soft Suede, greeting from the Eastern Beauty stamp set was stamped in Soft Suede and then punched out with a 1 1/4" circle punch.
Then finally I wrapped the box with a piece of Metallic gold or silver ribbon. The ribbon was about 30" long but you can probably go a little bit shorter, depending on the size of the bow you'd like to finish with.
I am very pleased with this project and so happy have come across it! I feel like with a project like this, the possibilities are endless on what they can be used for!!! What do you think?? Feel free to leave a comment!
Thanks for stopping by
Welcome to our May Stampin Friends Blog Hop. This month hop showcases projects that feature Father’s Day. Be sure to check out all our wonderful crafters and their amazing projects. Did you come from Cheryl Taylor’s blog? Her projects were awesome! Be sure to continue to Barbara Welch's blog, you can click on her link at the end of my blog.
I had fun preparing my projects for this month. I used all Stampin Up products. Primarily the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set, Geared Up Thinlits and DSP. The cardstock used is Basic Gray and Whisper White
The first project I made in my set is a card in a box. I have always wanted to make one, and I finally sat down to give it a whirl! I did search Pinterest and found this video by The Serene Stamper. I found her tutorial very easy to follow! I am so pleased with how it came out and I know it will make an adorable display for the kids to give their dad.
I then made this super easy gift card holder! It's the perfect compliment to the card in a box. Sometimes it's perfectly fine to give a gift card as a gift, when the person has all they need!
So for this project, you need a piece of cardstock cut to 3 1/2" x 8 1/2". This is a great size too and you can make 3 gift card holders from 1 piece of Cardstock. On the 3 1/2" side, score at 2 1/2" on one end and 2" on other end. Round the corners if you want to give a more finished look.
You will need 3 pieces of DSP, I just measure 1/4" less the front, bottom and back. I chose the shorter flap to be the top closer. Add tear n tape to the edges of the bottom flap to create a pocket.
And for the last but not least is a card suitable for any dad!!! I used Real Red as the card base, and layered with Whisper White and DSP. I stamped the images in Black Momento Ink. I cut the out with the Thinlits. I decided to not color the images. I feel they popped more against the DSP.
I hope you enjoyed the projects! Be sure to continue along the hop. Leave a comment and tell me what you think! 1 lucky person will receive the material to make all 3 projects!
Thanks so much
