Lunch Box Notes

August 28, 2019

Every year at the beginning of the school year, I like to whip up a ton of Lunch Box notes for the kids to stick into their lunches. These are small one sided note cards that I can write a quick positive note on the back.

The key to this notes are to make something pretty, but that can be whipped up quickly. And now that my daughters are older, they need to be a little more mature. So I love how the Romantic Bouquet and Lace Card dies allow me to make these special little notes so easily.

Step One: Trim up four pieces of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 2.75×4.25 inches.

Step Two: Die cut two of the pieces of paper with the Romantic Bouquet and two with the Lace Card. Yes the paper is smaller than the dies, but it works.

Step Three: Spray one of each die cuts with some spray ink. I chose purple for my youngest daughter.

Step Four: Repeat step three with the other two die cuts and a different color. I used orange for my oldest daughter.

Step Five: Trim up four pieces of Soft Finish Cardstock to coordinate with the sprayed ink to 2.75×4.25 inches. I used Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and Rust Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the sprayed die cuts onto the colored cardstock using some Kids Choice Glue.

Step Six: Cover a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock with a piece Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet. Die cut your sentiment from the prepared cardstock. I used the die sets Words 2- Thinking of You and Words 4- Remember so I could use the words ‘forever’ and ‘good luck’.

Step Seven: Cover the die cut sentiments in one color of Silk Microfine Glitter. I used Royal Blue Silk Microfine Glitter for one set.

And Copper Silk Microfine Glitter for the other.

Step Eight: Adhere the the sentiments to the note card using some Kids Choice Glue.

Step Nine: Add a strip of 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive around the edges of the note card. Make sure to press the tape firmly to the project.

Step Ten: Add coordinating MicroFine Glitter to the 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

I love how these little note cards came out and can’t wait to use them in my daughter’s lunch boxes. These were super easy to make and yet I think the glitter makes it perfect for my not so little girls.

Thanks for peeking in today. Let us know in the comments below what you do for your kids or grandkids at back to school season. Until then, happy crafting.

Christmas In July

July 4, 2019

Hello! Samantha here, bringing you some Christmas card inspiration in July! Nothing beats being prepared six months before Christmas –– I personally try to make as many holiday themed cards as I can to avoid the crazy rush that leads up to Christmas day.

Card instructions:

Step 1: Stamp the Circle Background stamp on cardstock and pattern paper, fussy cut around the circles.

Step 2: Position and adhere the circles on to your card front (measuring: 10.5cm x 15.5cm) as shown below.

Step 3: (Optional) Add machine stitched detail to the circle Christmas tree.

Step 4: Stamp the Classic Christmas Sentiment on to the Banner die. Adhere this to your card front.

Step 5: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock and die cut the stars from the Elegant Christmas Tree die set.

Step 6: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Moonbeam). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 7: Embellish card with the glitter stars and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

Happy Crafting!

Samantha
