Day 7 Blogaversary Giveaway and Teacher Gift!

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone!
Sorry about the weird post... Don't know
where my sister Mi-Mi is? She was to fill it
in today.... Sooo here I am yet again! :o)
I'm just gonna get right to it here's my Project! :o)
Warning: This is Picture Heavy!!!

So today is my youngest last day of school and I wanted
to make something for his Teacher as a "Thank You" for
a great year! And this is what I came up with! :o)

I cut the Milk Carton from the "All Wrapped Up"
Imagine Cartridge using my E2! Is was cut at 8.9" and the
only thing I had trouble with was the top closer part..
There were NOOOO score lines??? Soooo I had to
mess with it a little to figure it out myself! I cut the
"2nd Grade" out @ 2 1/4"
Card stock is Stampin' Up
Designer Paper is MME - Lemon Twist

My son LOVES the color green so I decided to
make the Crayon green to represent him! I Cut
the Crayon out @ 2 3/4"

The school bus is on the back side of the carton and
it was cut @ 2 1/2"

I LOVE the Scissors! :o) It was cut out @ 2 1/2"
and I used Joys Life Stamp Set - All Around Sentiment
Ink is Stampin' Up and the circles and scallop are from
nestabilites.... I used an eyelet from my stash to
keep the carton closed on the one side and added
some twine through the eyelet to have the stamp tag hang!
This Milk Carton is filled with Hershey Kisses! :O)

I had to decorate the bag with the matching theme!
Soooo.... I cut the School Bus out @ 6 3/4"
and I did it twice so both sides show the school bus!

I LOVE making post it note holders for the teachers.....
We all use post it notes so I thought it would be fun
to decorate it with a worm.... :o) The Worm/Flag
is cut @ 3" and it's from the Lovely Floral Lite Cartridge!
The Stamp, Ink and Card stock are Stampin' Up and Designer
paper is from MME (Lemon Twist)  I had
to use a wiggly eye for it! LOL

Here is just the inside of the post it note holder...
The gel pen is from Walmart... I got it as a set of
3 for a $1.....

I LOVE how this box turned out as well! I made it
to hold 3 x 3 cards.... It's all decorated in the Lemon Twist Paper
and the top (#1 Teacher) is Cut @ 2 1/2"
I also used a border punch from Stampin' Up
it's under the #1 Teacher..... :o)

Here is the box open with all the 3 x 3 note cards inside...

And here are all the note cards! It's a set of 8....
I used 2 embossing folders, assorted ribbon...
The Lemon Twist Paper and Stampin' Up Card stock!
The (Apple) is Cut @ 1 1/2 and is from the
Making the Grade Cartridge
The rest are cut from the Locker Talk Cartridge
 (Pencil) is Cut @ 1 3/8"
 (Ruler) is Cut @ 1"
 (Chalkboard) is Cut @ 2 1/4"
I also used my White Signo Gel Pen and
my Black Zig Pen for all the Faux Stitching & dots!

I also made a card for the teacher to go along with this set...
but it was pretty late when I finished it so I have
noooo picture of that.... Sorry!
I hope you liked my project for today!
