The Kraft Journal #165 Inside and Out Teacher Gift

Good Monday Morning to you!

We have an Inside and Out Challenge this week at The Kraft Journal, and I decided to make a 3D gift card box with easel card for Teacher Appreciation Week.  I can't believe that will be in just a little over a month. 

I started by purchasing a file from the silhouette online store. I used a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock  that can be found at The Kraft Outlet.  I covered the drawer and easel card as indicated. The Patterned Papers are some I have had in my stash for awhile. I used Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock on the scallop rectangle on the easel card and I supported it by a red brad. I created a banner at the top of the card and I used some Red Baker's Twine to hold it in place. A sentiment from Paper Sweeties So Proud of You was stamped and cut from Buff Ivory Cardstock and then matted on red cardstock.  I created shreds for confetti in the drawer using more Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock.  After I put together the box, I wrapped a little wraphia ribbon around it and tied a bow on top. 

Here it is closed:
You just lay the easel flat, and open the box and place inside.

I sure hope you will be inspired to play along with us.  We hope to see your Inside Out creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I thought I would share at: Pause Dream Enjoy - Twine It Up, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes,  Sunday {Fun}day - March Linky PartyD.L. Art - March Linky Challenge, Craftin' Desert Divas - Anything Goes

Happy Stamping and Crafting!

Your son's teacher is going to love it! It's a perfect hand-made gift for a teacher!

I'm thinking of purchasing the Silhouette! I went scrapbooking with my friends at a local scrapbooking store, and I was amazed with all the 3-D projects she had in display. You are so lucky to have a silhouette! :)
