Now, for this month's theme: Teacher Gifts!


I made this gift box using Samantha Walker's Semi Circle Box studio file and the Cool Summer collection by Samantha Walker for Carta Bella.


The box is decorated to share the summer theme and inside will be a gift card for a cold sweet treat to a local ice cream place. In Rochester, the only obvious choice is Abott's!


As you can see based on the picture, I still need to go buy the gift card, but it is all ready and waiting until then.

Thanks for hopping along with us this month!
