Just a note and box

Happy Monday! Today I have a little gift and note card that is for the boys teacher. School starts tomorrow, so what better way to show the teacher we appreciate her than with a first day of school treat! Before I go into the details on this darling little box, check out Flourishes Blog today, our talented Designer Cindy has a tutorial on how to create this darling box using our Silhouette cameo.
We have a Silhouette file for the beautiful Autumn Blossoms stamp set and this was perfect for the design on the outside of my box. I let the machine cut out my shapes onto Classic White Cardstock, then I stamped the single blossom using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the matching shape. I also stamped another of the same blossom for my card. For the box I choose the Color Made Easy Pistachio Collection for my cardstock. This green is just yummy! While the Silhouette machine is cutting out the box I finish coloring the blossoms that are stamped out using Copic Collections


My card has some of the fabulous matching Color Made Easy Pistachio ribbon in Iced Lime with an added finishing touches silver ribbon slider. So card is now finished, head on over to the box as it is done. I fold up the box close the top up with some more of the Iced Lime ribbon with a bow. Then added my blossom that was already cut out and colored to the front panel with a few pearls and voila. Added a few of the treats I bought and a sweet little treat for the first day of school.
Tomorrow will be exciting as the kids are ready to go back to school. I however will be over at my parents helping them with what they need for the day and canning my stewed tomatoes. So a messy and hardworking day for me. ha! Hope you have a wonderful day!

WOW that box is amazing Stacy! The more and more I see of the Silhouette, the more it's moving up my Christmas wish list. LOL That seafoam green color is so so pretty. :-) Hope you have fun canning your tomatoes, but mostly spending time with your family. Hugs!
