Back to school {bella blvd}

This week Bella Blvd is celebrating Back to School! We've been sharing projects for the teachers and kiddos marking the occasion. 

First, I made this pencil gift box. It is quite possibly the most appropriate gift box for a teacher. I loved making this machine-cut pencil gift box cut using the Tiny Tots Flashcards A-L paper. I used the fun "A" flashcard as a gift tag and hand-cut a "hello" to make this box just as fun as whatever goodies I'll find to stash inside.

Supplies: Tiny Tots: (Pattern paper: Flashcards A-L), Treasures & Text Stickers. Summer Squeeze: (Pattern paper: Pocket Full of Posies)

Next I made this card. The fishies on the paper from Tiny Tots remind me of a school of fish, so I had to use them on my back to school card. 

A bold and vibrant die cut message in the middle of the card makes the teacher feel appreciated on the first day back to school.

Supplies: Tiny Tots: (Pattern paper: Alphabet Soup, One Fish Two Fish), Paper Pieces Die Cuts. Classic Calendars: Treasures & Text Stickers
